These are some of the things families have said about us.



SkylerGraduationOn Friday, May 16, 2014, Skyler obtained his degree and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Arizona. His major was Film & Television Studies, with a minor in Creative Writing.  The graduation ceremony was great fun for us all; afterwards at the celebration dinner, we toasted your name in recognition and thanks. He graduated in 4 years, debt-free.  Skyler and I both made some filing mistakes and such during these past 4 years, it could have been a real disaster, and you were able to sort it out for him. We can’t thank you enough for everything you did to help. - Bruce

Thank you so much for providing me details of the Pell Grant. We applied and in less than two weeks we were informed a $5600 grant had been awarded to Alana to complete her last year of nursing school. I couldn't have done it without you. Best Wishes, Dr.Bob.

  • My son, Josh is now a senior (2012) and has started the college admission process. He has been selected as a Scholarship finalist and has submitted his applications to Yale, UPenn, Stanford and Princeton. Three years ago, we never would have dreamed to apply at schools like these, but your advice to look at private colleges for better financial aid was spot on. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
  • JD, We all appreciate your helping us with these essays!! It is a wonderful feature to your services! Thank you much, Nancy

Here is what one student said about my Application Boot Camp.

What families have said about AZ College Consulting, LLC
thanks very much for your time and this info. I would be happy to spread the word. -BD Scottsdale
J.D. Thank you for spending this time with Courtney.  It has already helped us and her immensely. -JM
Hi J.D.   I got a significant increase from Marquette University after attending both your seminar and your one-on-one meeting AND following your advice.
MU raised the financial award from $2,000 per year to $9,000 per year (that's per year!) and what is even more incredible is that they gave us the $9,000 financial aid beginning this year when I thought all hope was lost.
I want to thank you very much for all your help…speak to you soon.
Sincerely, Clif (Anthem, AZ)
“THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! I’m so appreciative of the knowledge you brought to this class. One tip alone got me an extra $9,708 FREE per year!”
Rhonda H. (Her daughter just graduated)
(Our daughter) is really excited. Thanks for all your help! With your help she can go to Syracuse - otherwise we could not have done it! I will definitely be spreading the word!
Karen (Scottsdale, AZ)
"Thank you, now I realize if I waited until my child’s senior year of high school it would have cost us thousands. My friends thought we started too early. I’m so glad we started when we did. "
Patty C.
(The best time to start is as a High School Freshman or Sophomore, some professionals even suggest as early as Middle School. If you have older kids, you need to put it in high gear.)
... I also recommended you to one of my clients. Best regards, S. C. (Glendale, AZ)
"The workshop was very informative and provided meaningful information about financial aid."
