SPRINGFIELD – The task of finding the right college fit lies ahead and it can be both daunting and complex. Additionally, the economy has declined and college costs have risen, forcing families to buckle down and become more resourceful when faced with paying for college.
To help with this process, a FREE Financial Aid Seminar will be offered by the Hebrew Free Loan of Greater Springfield and the Springfield Jewish Community Center.
Adam Metsch, founder and president of The College Advisor of New England, Inc. will be facilitating this workshop Tuesday, March 18 at 7 p.m. at the JCC.
Since 1994, Metsch and his company helped thousands of families survive the trek through the college selection, admissions and decision-making obstacle course. Metsch and his team apply smart financial strategies to help pinpoint schools that are the best match for the student.
At the workshop you will learn tips on admission, cost reduction and how to preserve your assets and improve your eligibility for scholarships and financial aid.
Metsch is a Certified Educational Planner. 91% of the students he counseled remained at their college for four years. The national average is 51%. He and his team have visited and critiqued over 550 schools across the country. The secret to their success is in helping students identify and understand what they want from their college experience – to develop their voice, broaden their perspective and discover schools where they can succeed.
All parents of college bound students are invited Tuesday, March 18th at 7 p.m. at the JCC.
