The hard part is over! Your child was admitted to college. Now comes the “paying for it” part. We totally get it. Paying for college is a huge investment and one that should be taken with great care.

Did your journey look something like this?
When you discover that Juniata even exists in the first place:(more…)

Now that our office is busy at work sending out decisions, I couldn’t help but remember my devastating college rejection story.
Way back when, I applied Early Decision to a Particular Highly Selective Liberal Arts College Which Shall Remain Nameless thinking, “Ooo! This will definitely help me get in since I’m committing so early. They’ll definitely notice my demonstrated interest!” Yeah…it doesn’t really work like that, Kat.(more…)
