  • My family is extremely grateful for the able guidance Stephanie provided

    My family is extremely grateful for the able guidance Stephanie provided during the application process for our daughter, Hannah. She helped us focus on the best 4 choices (avoiding the trap of applying everywhere), helped us get every grant or scholarship that was possible, and generally enabled us to go through the process without undue stress, worry or confusion, with patience and professionalism.

  • I enlisted Stephanie Hancock’s services to help us navigate

    In early 2013, I enlisted Stephanie Hancock’s services to help us navigate through a difficult and complex financial aid application process. I found Stephanie to have a very deep understanding of the subject matter and even when confronted with a unique requirement, she knew how to track down the right information. With Stephanie’s guidance, we were able to maximize our financial aid award and our high school senior is off to college this fall able to meet her financial obligations. Because our experience went so well, we have hired Stephanie to be our advisor going forward.

  • Stephanie was invaluable to us

    “Stephanie was invaluable to us. The process of applying for financial aid for our daughter was a bit overwhelming and confusing, and she helped us every step of the way. She was always readily available, prompt, reassuring, and clearly very experienced with all the details and paperwork. We ran across some unexpected hurdles, which she dealt with efficiently and knowledgeably. We ended up with a better financial aid package than we had even hoped for. We honestly couldn’t have done it without her.”

  • Our children into the colleges of their first choices

    “After surviving the rigors of getting our children into the colleges of their first choices, our financial situation changed course midstream and we needed to seek financial aid. Your guidance and assistance was a tremendous resource, and I know that we would never have succeed at the level we did without your involvement. You were and will be irreplaceable. Well worth you consulting fees. The maze and ins and outs of financial aid are confusing and many. You made this process easy, your experience and capabilities. Our daughters were successful in getting financial aid because of you. If we had done it…I know it would have been very frustrating and mistake filled. The correct answer in the right place is more important here than on the SATs. We cannot say any more than that you are the right professional for this process, college financial aid. We were successful because of you. We were very pleased with the results to say the least. Thanks again and I send you my best wishes.”
