I reached out to Peg when my son was a sophomore in HS. We learned that due to our financial profile we would not qualify for financial aid. We wanted a small private liberal arts school, so we focused on schools that offered merit aid. We decided to apply ‘early decision’ to my son’s dream school. It was a bit of a gamble, since it would not allow us to play a bit of hard ball with offers from other schools. He was accepted, but with no merit aid. Peg helped us with a letter to appeal the offer. The college came back with a $12,000 merit aid scholarship, which put us in a more comfortable financial reality. Way of the Quad was a good investment, saving us $48,000 in tuition over 4 years!
