College Benefits Research Group Speaks Throughout New Jersey About the College Application Process

Roseland, New Jersey – January 6, 2014 - The college application process is daunting and often intimidating to both students and their families. College Benefits Research Group (CBRG), a college planning organization, recently spoke with WCTC radio, WGLS radio, and The Star-Ledger about college applications and how to choose the right school financially, academically and socially for the student and their families.

Steven Sirot, Co-Founder spoke with WCTC’s “Jersey Central” radio show on all aspects of college planning (here: http://www.cbrg.info/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=57&Itemid=65). Both Steven Sirot and Janet Loren, Educational Counselor, discussed the importance of the financial as well as the academic and social “fit” of a school for the student AND the family with WGLS’s “A Community Affair,” radio show (here: http://www.cbrg.info/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=59&Itemid=65).
David Slater, Co-Founder, was quoted in two separate columns for The Star-Ledger. Read the first column here: http://www.nj.com/education/2013/11/college_tips_answering_readers.html and read the second here: http://www.nj.com/education/2013/12/college_tips_a_reader_asks_for.html

Co-founded by Steven Sirot and David N. Slater and joined by their partner, Educational Counselor, Janet Loren, 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 Steven 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.”
