Our next Facebook Live Video will cover Independent Education Consultants, IECs, often referred to as private college counselors.

Who are those people and what can they do to help you get into and pay for college?

Be sure join us on our College Money Search Facebook page on Monday, March 27th at 7:30 pm central time when we will be interviewing Carey McClure of Collegiate Crossings.

We will be asking her about private counselors, when to use them, and what to expect. She'll also be sharing her tips on what families need to watch out for during the college admission process.


We'll only have a limited amount of time to answer viewers' questions so we encourage you to submit yours now by signing up for a reminder for the Facebook Session. We can't promise we'll be able to answer all questions but we'll get through as many as possible. Looking forward to seeing you there.
