Our client says it best:

The team at Midwest College Planning are fantastic, and I HIGHLY recommend them to help guide you through the overwhelming college process. Some of the services we took advantage of (all included) were (i) assisting with financial aid package, (ii) help identifying potential schools (local or out of state), (iii) evaluate the scholarship offers, (iv) critiquing essays, and (v) recommending tutors for ACT/SAT, etc. They even assisted us with a letter that we used to actually double our scholarship offer, which more than paid for their services. If your child is like mine, having another voice push your child to complete essays, check in on ACT/SAT studying and staying on them to create a list of potential schools, was invaluable. ~B.E., Westerville, OH
