Let's get personal, shall we? 

I graduated with roughly $19,000 of student loan debt. They gave me 15 years to pay it off. 

Monthly payments = $152. At the end of 15 years, I will have paid over $25,000 as a result of interest.

Now that's on the low end...with the average cost of college anywhere from $25,000 to $70,000 a year...your student could graduate with over $100,000 of debt. 

Believe me, you and your child do not want that.

A lot of debt equates to a delay in the ability to buy a car, a house, start a family, enjoy life!

It means moving back in with you after they graduate college so they can pay off their loans...there's a reason this generation is called the "boomerang" generation.

Anna helped my daughter develop many life skills such as public speaking and writing concisely and efficiently. 

Looking back, we feel that one thing we could have done better was to start the planning process earlier, ideally from 9th grade, so that there would be more time to develop a more well rounded portfolio.    

Thank you for helping my daughter get into her dream school, UPenn.

I am looking for words that describe how grateful we are. The essay flows very naturally and has very positive tone. You enabled him to connect sports to his  work ethics.​

You probably heard by now from my son about his acceptance into his first choice, Vassar.

Is this worth the money?

Is this worth the money?

Well, that's really up to you to decide. A college education is one of the most influential times in a student's life. It can give your child access to new opportunities - meeting people from all over the world, learning from award winning experts in their field, even potentially landing a well-paying job. The average fee for consultants to help students with college applications ranges from $4,000 to $7,000. Some even charge $15,000 to $80,000! Through this course, you'll learn how to get yourself through the college application process without the high price tag.

Does this take the place of hiring a college admissions consultant?

Does this take the place of hiring a college admissions consultant?

It depends. This offers the information and techniques to submit the best college application based on how well your child follows the course. If your child is not someone who can manage their time and can take initiative to implement the recommended actions, then this may not be the best choice for you. This may also not be the best course for you, if your child needs one-on-one attention. For example, students that have learning or physical disabilities or those who are applying to extremely competitive schools, may want to supplement this with a few consultant hours.

Personal Note from Anna:

Personal Note from Anna:

My dad was a chef and my mom was a nanny. By all means, respectable work, but my brother and I knew we wanted better. 

The ability to give our families a vacation.

The opportunity to meet people from all different backgrounds.

The chance to give our future generations a better life.

I believe in providing this opportunity to every family, which is why I created Prep for Success Academy. While I work with private clients, I wanted to create an affordable solution so that every family has the ability to afford college admissions preparation services for their child. Join me in giving your child their best chance for college admissions. 

While college may not be for everyone, it has given my brother the opportunity to study at Oxford in England, me the opportunity to study at the University of Melbourne. It has given us careers that we enjoy and friends that come from all backgrounds, enriching our lives in ways we never thought possible. 

I look forward to celebrating your child's accomplishments as we embark on this journey together. 

Best wishes,

Anna
