College Bound gave us a strategy for creating real options, not just a list of schools. It would be easy for them to name 10 schools for us to visit, but focusing on 10 schools we can’t afford gives us zero options. At College Bound, we learned that finding a good college fit is a process, something you need to work for. You need to consider all of your goals and objectives in order to make informed decisions. Otherwise, it would be like spending a lot of money on a car without kicking the tires. The college search is a challenging process. You are marketing yourself and at the same time you are being bombarded by colleges marketing themselves to you. Working with College Bound is a way of getting a third party view, of bringing us one step closer to the real world.
