Q: What gives me edge?

A: I have worked in a large public university for 31 years and a private university for 5 years in the fields of admission, financial aid, academic advising, and student affairs. All of these were in director or vice president level positions, working directly with students and leading teams of service providers. I have also consulted admission, financial aid, and student affairs offices at 15 colleges, and served on the board of 4 higher education corporations. I was a consultant to the U.S. Department of Education, and helped them to transform student financial aid delivery systems. I have helped thousands of students with their education journey and look forward to helping you!

Upon completion of the call, you can decide if you want to proceed to schedule a one-hour session, and you can choose subsequent one-hour sessions as desired.

Lee is a great consultant, after I contact him through chats, he has scheduled a video chat with me and learn more about my background and needs. Then I ordered one session to request review and suggestions for my PS. Lee has responded quickly within a day with great comments to help me improve my PS. I have learned a lot based on his comments.

Lee was very knowledgeable in how FAFSA processes information and how schools interpret that information for further aid, grants, etc. He found many different options for us to take that could help as we move forward. Grateful for all his expertise!
