  • (1888PressRelease) October 13, 2017 - Roseland, New Jersey - Jeanne Parnell of WHCR 90.3 FM recently spoke with Janet Loren, Partner, Certified Educational Planner (CEP), College Benefits Research Group (CBRG), where they discussed how the college application process has changed, the ways colleges now market to different students, the influential role of college rankings and how the rules have changed. There was also extensive conversation on the importance of finding the right ‘fit’ between a student and the college they choose.

    Loren said, “We hear about the top 100 schools, but there are students graduating from all kinds of schools that you haven’t heard of who are getting wonderful jobs.” Loren continues, “Fit is so important because If you position well academically (Are a strong student for the school) the school is more likely to give you additional scholarship money because they want to entice you to attend.”

    College Benefits Research Group (CBRG) is a college planning organization with a unique model for working with families to find the right “fit” for their child not only financially, but academically and socially as well. Their three prong model in the college planning arena is innovative and effective in order to develop a college game plan that works for everyone. CBRG has appeared in print and broadcast media outlets.

    Co-founded by Steven Sirot and David N. Slater and joined by their partner, Janet Loren, Certified Educational Planner (CEP), CBRG demonstrates how a private and/or public education is affordable and attainable and allows hard working families to hit a “home run” in finding the right school, academically, socially and financially, for their child. CBRG also assists with the filing of financial aid forms.

    “We are different from other college planning services in that we offer “harmonization” of financial, educational and social guidance for the entire family,” says Sirot. “We meet jointly with students and parents to develop a college game plan that works for everyone. Too often college students attend a school because their friends are there, or it is the so-called ‘hot school’ that is on everyone’s radar, without any consideration of whether the school is right for them or the long-term effect it will have on family finances. We work hard with the entire family to let students know that going to college is a responsible decision that affects the whole family, and there are no ‘free rides.’ The student will be responsible for their academic success in college, which includes graduating in four years, and for paying back of some loans that may need to be taken out in their name.”
