Talking Points:

Major Issues Facing Students & Parents When Considering College

1) Most HS students are unsure about their future and are generally Undecided about their career pursuits. No Real Plan or Purpose. At the end of the day, millions of HS Students are not really prepared to have a tremendous amount of success in college.

2) 42% of College Students are dropping out or not able to complete Bachelors degree in 6 years.  More than 50% are not completing it in 4 years.  30% of freshmen transfer or dropout.

3) Higher Education is expensive.  Student Debt is off the charts.

Highlights:

Two Free Virtual Seminars and 2 Fee Based Virtual Seminars in the Month of May.

Biggest success this past few months, Planning & Vision saved $17K per year for one student at a reputable and selective school after the student already received a $20K scholarship from the school.    I spent one hour with one client and I saved her additional $2,500 in college costs each year at a college with a Nursing Program which will add up to $10K if she continues there all 4 years.

About Phil:

Phil Vetrano has spent the last few years making a positive difference in HS & College Students lives by providing them with exceptional insights and opportunities to identify their academic and career goals with a methodology that keeps the students engaged, interested and anxious to learn more.  The students affectionally call him Coach Phil.  Coach Phil lets the student know that they are the CEO of their career and this process is all about them and each family members can be a valuable member of the team to provide assistance in preparation of the most significant decision of the teen’s life. The biggest and most daunting question for a student is: What am I going to do after High School?  For most teenagers, it is the first time they are making an adult decision and most are ill prepared to really understand what all their options are and how to go about this crucial decision-making process.  

Coach Phil Vetrano started performing Best Fit College & College Readiness analysis back in 2014 when his son was a sophomore in HS. After 2 years of solid research and data analysis of 1000 colleges, visiting 17 colleges, and speaking to 100’s of colleges; father and son were very confident that he was applying to 8 of his best fit colleges. After applying to all 8 colleges, Coach Phil performed a much deeper analysis to distinguish each college to assess which 3 colleges his son would be most likely to academically and socially thrive at, and determined which ones were the best value, within budget to avoid any student debt.  In April 2021, his son has a 3.8 GPA at his favorite University and completed his Bachelor Degree requirements in International Affairs in 3 years and has $0.00 Student Debt and he currently interns at the State Department in Washington DC.
