Programs For Education (PFE)
Director of College Admissions Advising
Eric speaks nationally to parents, financial advisors and CPA’s. His pragmatic approach demystifies the college planning process and is considered by many college admissions professionals as one of the most professionally knowledgeable and comprehensive counseling systems for college selection in the United States. His firm specializes in working with students anywhere in the country who aspire to be accepted to the more competitive colleges. That is, those that accept less than 40% of applicants.
Eric participates in the College Board’s admissions and financial aid workshops for College Admissions and Financial Aid Administrators. This personal association with such individuals can help you and your student get an early and realistic assessment as to how both admissions and the financial aid offices may evaluate the applicant and parents. This “behind the scenes” insight has helped hundreds of families over the last 15 years plan strategically for optimal results.
PFE’s support as a member of our team can include pre-college academic preparation, college selection, essay advising, recommendations and interview strategies. In addition, coaching in how to show “demonstrated interest” in a prospective college without being superfluous or insincere. Keep in mind that the supplemental applications and the college specific short answer questions can be the downfall of a bright student’s acceptance chances. Eric and his counselors will carefully review all applications prior to submission with the student. This will enhance his or her chances of success.
