Topics that will be discussed include:

  • How to guide students in knowing which colleges to apply to
  • How to apply effectively to increase the chances of getting into a desired school
  • The top five things one should know before applying to college
  • How to get scholarships from the desired college of choice
  • How to balance the cost of education vs. the value of the degree earned.
  • How to pay for college
  • Different types of financial aid
  • MOST IMPORTANTLY: how one's family may be able to save tens of thousands of dollars on college tuition

Co-founded by Steven Sirot and David N. Slater and joined by partner, Educational Counselor Janet Loren, CBRG demonstrates how a private and/or public education is affordable and attainable and allows hard working families to hit a “home run” in finding the right school, academically, socially and financially, for their child. CBRG also assists with the filing of financial aid forms.

“We are different from other college planning services in that we offer “harmonization” of financial, educational and social guidance for the entire family,” said Sirot.”We meet jointly with students and parents to develop a college game plan that works for everyone. Too often college students attend a school because their friends are there, or it is the so-called ‘hot school’ that is on everyone’s radar, without any consideration of whether the school is right for them or the long-term effect it will have on family finances. We work hard with the entire family to let students know that going to college is a responsible decision that affects the whole family, and there are no ‘free rides.’ The student will be responsible for their academic success in college, which includes graduating in four years, and paying back of some loans that may need to be taken out in their name.”

College Benefits Research Group’s community workshops are held throughout the state and explain in detail many strategies one can employ to find the best college “fit” for one's child. Sirot and Slater, MBA, are Charter Members of the National College Advocacy Group (NCAG). Loren holds professional memberships in the Independent Educational Consultants Association (IECA); the National Association for College Admissions Counseling (NACAC); the New Jersey Association for College Admissions Counseling (NJACAC); the Higher Education Counselors Association (HECA) and the National College Advocacy Group (NCAG).

A Royal Pain

I like to think I was invited, but according to the Royal Guards and the Thames Valley Police I was not.  But more about that later.

You see, not too long ago I received an evite addressed to me from H&M@royalwedbot.co.uk.  Curiously, it was in my spam folder with a warning message. For an evite it was pretty ...
