Comments

Thanks to Andy's College Negotiations / Appeals Master Class, I was able to negotiate an additional $11K in scholarships from my son's top-choice college. The webinar and sample appeal letters were extremely helpful. Thanks!
I'd like to say thanks to Mr. and Mrs. Lockwood and everyone else at Lockwood College Prep. I asked for their help this past summer as the whole college finance topic was pretty confusing. It turns out I waited too long to seek the Lockwood's help and I was told, by FAFSA, that my family was wealthy beyond measure (not even close). When it was apparent that we would not qualify for need based aid, again I waited too long, my family's focus then shifted to finding help for our daughter so she could make herself an "Incomparable Applicant". This past Monday she received her acceptance letter to one of the most competitive colleges in the country. The kid, despite being related to a dope like me, is bright, well rounded and motivated, but without the Lockwood group's help it would have been WAY more difficult for her to get in.

My recommendation to everyone is to start asking for advice as soon as possible. Andy and Pearl know what they're doing and they can save you a bundle............if you start early enough. If you're like me and you start too late, they can still help your son or daughter gain admittance to some of the best colleges in the country.
Thank you Pearl for helping me today on your first day back from vacation! I appreciate everything you do.
Andy and Pearl are a great team.
I have been a Director of College Guidance for the past nineteen years, and these guys know their stuff! I have their website linked to the college guidance section of our school website...

"Andy and Pearl were both invaluable from start to finish as were trying to help our oldest son navigate the college application process! Andy helped us create a well-balanced list of schools and showed us how to effectively communicate not only Harry's accomplishments, but who he is and what he has to offer the colleges on his list. Pearl made the process of financial aid forms completely stress-free. Harry was admitted into his dream school as well as most others on his list, and we could not be more pleased with the Lockwood team!"

"We cannot say enough about how great an experience we had with Andy & Pearl and how lucky we were to find them.

We have two seventeen year old boys who will be attending college in the fall. To be perfectly honest, we were quite skeptical about a lot of the things Andy presented in the beginning as far as what his company would be able to do. We figured we might have a couple of the things he mentioned in his presentation happen, but not all of them. Their service is not cheap, but he indicates the money that is saved in the first year tuition on one kid will cover what he costs. Sounds great....but come on really?

Well it turns out he was wrong, we saved enough on tuition through merit aid in one year on one kid to pay his fee two and a half times over for both boys. We are sending our boys to two excellent small liberal arts colleges, Loyola and Holy Cross, at discounts of $38,500 and $29,000 from sticker price per year. You can do the math, that's a savings of $270,000 over their four years of college. I know without Andy's guidance there is no way we would have found the right schools for our boys much less get any kind of discounts like these.

We went from being complete novices about finding Colleges to being experts with Andy's guidance. I have to say the things that Andy educates you on and the information he provides you will not find anyplace else. We can honestly say that at this point we know about ten times more than the boys' school guidance counselor about this process. Sad, but true. Their process addressed every aspect of the college process including the boys taking tests to evaluate their personality to find their best fits as far as majors/careers to their own exclusively designed computer software that realistically predicts ability to get in to schools.

We really could go on all day about how great our Lockwood College Prep experience was. If you are very serious about this process, willing to put the time and effort as a family required, able to have an open mind, and listen to the guidance given, we know you will not be disappointed with their service. Andy doesn't sugar coat things and you need to leave your ego at the door, but you will come away from this process with the best college for your student at a fair price. You additionally will come away knowing more than 99% of the parents going through this process. We are actually surprised on a daily basis in speaking to other parents, the lack of knowledge their is and how they came to their decisions. You will come to find in the end that this whole process is a game and if you choose to use their service, you will put yourself in a winning position."

"Our family’s relationship with Lockwood College Prep began when I sent my son to the Application Boot Camp. The time he spent there not only gave him an incredible head start on the application process, but also provided him with invaluable feedback. Andy’s generosity of time and resources were on display as he graciously included a few amazing surprises along the way. My son emerged from Boot Camp in great shape. So pleased with the camp experience, I entrusted the Lockwoods with the daunting FAFSA and CSS Profile paperwork. Pearl’s expertise is unparalleled. She ensured that the information was submitted accurately, by the prescribed deadlines and was instrumental in the structuring of the loan components. My phone calls and emails never went unheeded as the Lockwood team provided everything they promised and more. Lockwood College Prep will help your family navigate the higher education landscape with care, skill and even a few laughs along the way.
