With 23 years experience as a college administrator in the fields of admission and financial aid, Michael Szarek has seen tens of thousands of families and thousands of adult learners.  But what he hasn't seen is a service for adults going back to school, professionals looking at grad schools and families who just need a College Search "tune up" without paying for a new transmission.

So, he created one.  "College Counseling for the Rest of Us" is a service for those who are unsure how to take the first step in the college search process, or what should be the next step.  It's for adults who are debating about whether returning to college is right for them.

There's a new blog every Wednesday night at http://ccrmichael.wordpress.com, and an active Facebook "fan" page at "College Counseling for the Rest of Us", which posts several relevant education, admissions and financial aid news stories each day.  Mr. Szarek can be reached directly at 908-403-3819 and at CCRMichael@gmail.com
