"I met Dan Stavale at an informational college planning meeting at the Farmington Library in 2003. I personally found the presentation very helpful and asked Dan to come speak to the Parent Forum Group at Harrison High School, which he did. I then hired Dan and College Planning Solutions to help my daughter, then a junior in high school with the planning process. Dan and his wife Tracey were great to work with. My daughter is now a junior at the University of Michigan and we are not broke due to Dan's financial advice!"
"I am now the President of the Parent Forum at Harrison and again invited Dan Stavale to speak at our February meeting. Even on the coldest night of the year we had over 30 parents come out to our meeting. Dan's presentation and his knowledge about financial aid, scholarships, FAFSA, CSS/Profile and other forms has reached new heights. He helped us understand the different types of college aid, and how to optimize our assets to increase college aid eligibility. He also spoke to the short-term goals of paying for college as well as the long-term goals of recovering college costs."
"Many parents who attended the presentation told me how beneficial they felt it was. It was definitely well worth my time and I plan on using College Planning Solutions services again to help my son with his college plans."
Thank you Dan!
Harrison High School Parent Forum President
