Todd Gedryn co-authors book to help families navigate the complicated and overwhelming experience of college admissions and financial aid planning.
San Jose, CA – In this book, Secrets of a College Financial Aid Expert, families get invaluable information to traverse the college prep nightmare. Whether looking for guidance in choosing the right university for your student’s unique situation or figuring out the most efficient, tax-effective way to pay for it, find the answers you need. Todd Gedryn, Founder of College Planning Systems, puts his years of experience with Higher Education and financial planning to work for families undertaking this challenging journey. One of Gedryn’s main goals is to educate families.
“You don’t know what you don’t know. Higher Ed is notorious for withholding information – the less you know, the more you pay. You need to learn the rules of the game, and the best strategies to win, in order to have a fighting chance. Would you play a game of Chess for $200k not knowing the rules or what you are up against…why is college the only area we are willing to do that?”
This book illuminates’ pitfalls to avoid, tips for increasing your SAT and ACT score, how to write a killer admission essay and how to negotiate with schools to increase financial aid awards. Going beyond just getting accepted, how do you pay for college without impacting your retirement?
“If we can help your student get into a school of their dreams and you can pay as little as possible and retire with a higher lifestyle, that’s a successful story,” says Gedryn.
