The Wonderful Dilemma

If you begin with us by July 1 following junior year and follow through on our suggestions, you will have the ideal problem of choosing between…

Admission to one of your top few schools
Admission with a significant merit scholarship to one of your safeties

Given both of these options, which will you choose?

Our goal is to create this wonderful dilemma for all of our college planning clients!

BrainStorm are true professionals. I give them my highest recommendation…the connection they make with the kids is like nothing I’ve experienced before.
