Step 2. BOOK YOUR COLLEGE STRATEGY SESSION
Dear fellow parent:

Thank you for your interest in our college advising services.  Let me be straight with you:

Our proprietary "P4" system is really a backward approach to creating a college plan, integrating four separate disciplines.  We're the only game in town when it comes to this approach - to our knowledge, no public high school guidance counselor, private school advisor or any other college planner addresses the following critical elements in a comprehensive, integrated way.

Plus, we don't bribe, photoshop or take standardized tests for you! (C'mon, I had to say something!)

Here's how we approach advising in four steps:

1. PlanFirst, we explore your child's "wiring" and what that translates into in terms of where they can fit into the world AND make a living (i.e. getting off Mom and Dad's payroll. :)

2. PathImmediately thereafter, we build a strategic and balanced college list that includes schools that are highly reputable across the cluster of best fit majors and careers that we mutually decide to focus on, as well as "best fit" for other, more traditional college planning considerations.

3. PositionThe next component is reverse engineering what will resonate with admissions officers, which involves uncovering the unique qualities of each child to position them to stand from thousands of competitor-applicants.  This includes resume-building, essay writing, test prep and tutoring, visits, interviews,  and more.

4. Produce.  The last step involves scholarships, financial aid advice and forms preparation, and creative funding strategies that frequently involve tax-related advice for high earning business owners. We are experts at negotiating scholarship and financial aid awards, also.

The customary charge for a College Strategy Session is $499, but you can book one - gratis - if you do so within 72 hours of attending one of our presentations.

College Advising Fees and your Return on Investment.

I won't beat around the bush, we're not an el-cheapo operation.  But the investment to work with us is commensurate with the value we provide in terms of scholarships and financial aid we're able to help clients obtain...

...not to mention clarity about which colleges to apply to, what to write on essays and applications, which courses and extracurricular activities to pursue, college visits and interviews, holding your child accountable through the entire process so you don't have to scream at them and similar concerns and more...

...which ALL equates to a huge reduction of uncertainty and stress that, frankly, is impossible to quantify.

Andy takes on 24 select students per graduation class, e.g. 24 for the Class of 2021, 24 2022's.  His capacity fills up earlier each year.


Current college advisory fees start at $6,000 and can be more than $20,000 (subject to change, without notice).  The range depends on whether families work with us for financial aid and other college funding advice, or our more comprehensive program that includes each of the four areas (Plan, Path, Position, Produce), above.

Fees to work with Andy's associates start at $3,500. Lockwood College Prep also offers standalone SAT and ACT prep and financial aid applications preparation and consulting.

NOTE:  because we are a 'boutique" firm with limited capacity to work 1-on-1 with families, we are extremely choosy about whom we work with.  If we sense, in an initial College Strategy Session phone call that a child or parent will not be a good fit (e.g. easy to work with), we will politely inform them so and conclude the call, no hassles or hard feelings.

However, if we mutually decide that it's appropriate to discuss these details on your call, you'll get everything you need - including pricing, deliverables and MUTUAL expectations -  to make a decision about working with us.



Three things happen during your College Strategy Session:
YOUR QUESTIONS
Fire away any "burning" questions on our conference call!  (You'll get our conf call log in details after you book.) Most calls are about getting into college, paying for college (grants and scholarships) help managing the whole process, i.e. ACT/SAT, what do do when, esp. choosing colleges, extra-curriculars, interviews, applications essays, more!
OUR ANSWERS
You'll get answers to each of your questions.  However, be forewarned:  typically, Andy has several questions for YOU :)  Frequently, his questions are about grades, standardized test scores (if known), extra-curricular activities, financial info such as income, savings, your goals...and challenges!   
GOOD FIT?
On your call, Andy  will give you the best - and candid - advice possible.  If he believes that you'd be a good fit for one of our programs, Andy will make a recommendation..and if Andy does NOT think that our services will be valuable to you, he'll tell you as well (this is the case with approximately 1/3 of prospective clients). 
As soon as I walked through your door I felt as if a huge weight had been lifted off my shoulders.  Thank you for all you have done for my precious girls!

Thank you for all your help with the applications and essays!
-Victorien Jakobsen, Vassar College

I recommend you to all my friends with kids headed to college that they call you.

Initially, I thought I was just going to get financial aid advice but 
Andy helped us with a lot more than that.  

He spoke about camps Alexis should attend to showcase her talents, the sports resume to send out to colleges, sports DVD, the essays she should be writing, internships and just so many other little details that I just didn't think about. 

 
His rolodex is filled with the right connections that Lexi needed for the college process. He helped us market our daughter. 

I think it would be worth your time to meet with Andy. Thank you!

Andy put all my wife's anxieties about the college paperwork to rest.  I can't say enough about the quality of his work.  My daughter is so happy at Columbia!
Thanks, Andy!

Andy, We want to thank you and Pearl for all your hard work advising us on the issues surrounding college admission. You simplified an often complex process and took a huge load off of our shoulders. 

While we should have listened to your advice regarding early decision, we were pleased with the increase in financial aid afforded to us.  
We look forward to your counsel in the years ahead for all three of our college bound children. It’s great working with you both.

Dear College Pete and Andy: 
We wanted to express our thanks and gratitude for your professional guidance in the college planning process. We first met with you at one of your seminars when Lauren was in the beginning of 10th grade. While initially it seemed perhaps to be a bit premature to plan for college three years in advance, it became clear that in fact that was the perfect time to start planning. You never made any guarantees other than that if we followed your strategies we would put ourselves in the best possible position to be eligible for financial assistance.Lauren received a letter from Vanderbilt approximately one month ago. The good news for her was that she was accepted for admission...but Vanderbilt's initial award for financial aid was approximately $9,000.
It became clear that Vanderbilt misconstrued some information on our tax return, and you, You and my accountant and I worked closely together to further explain the tax situation. Ultimately, through perseverance and continued support from you, the initial award was increased from $9,000.00 to $39,000. We are thrilled as parents as is our daughter, Lauren. 
 We would highly recommend your professional service to any family who is considering sending their child to a private university. 

-David and Lisa Reiser, 
Plantation, Florida   

I recommend that you contact Andy, everything was done for me, college applications, offers...he guided me through the entire process -it was great!  I didn't have to worry about anything!
