The average private college will cost $100,000 over four years. A State University B.A. will run roughly $60,000. Taking the time to find a good counselor is as sensible as consulting a financial planner or an accountant. For the time involved, college counseling is a bargain and costs far less than for a broker, who is trying to sell you something. The investment made is crucial to potential career options.
