"College Inside Track has been a great addition to my financial planning practice. The feedback from my clients has been really positive on the process of helping evaluate colleges and evaluating how to approach it as it as relates to scholarships and finances.

I’ve received some feedback that I wasn’t necessarily expecting. My clients have commented how much their child engaged in the process and listened to the advice of their CIT consultant. When the parents would say something about college, it would be like their child was listening to Charlie Brown’s teacher, but when the consultant would talk the student would take it all in and follow the advice."

"We need to continually provide our members leading content to help them stay at the forefront of our industry, and College Inside Track consistently delivers and is always among our highest rated speakers each year. They provide actionable strategies to help financial advisors with what is now a milestone topic for their clients, and our members continue to ask us to have them back.

I highly recommend College Inside Track to any association or committee planning an upcoming meeting or conference. They are best-in-class."

Jessica Hawthorne

Executive Director, Financial Planning Association of Minnesota

"College Inside Track is one of the most knowledgeable experts I know in the area of college planning. Listening to them, you understand that a college education should be approached like buying a home or making any other large purchase. Their information is empowering.

Whether professionals are advising their clients or parents are looking at colleges with their children, people hearing College Inside Track have better information which can lead to them making better decisions. I recommend their program and firm highly."

As a member of FPA-MN, I have come to expect outstanding educational content that can quickly sharpen or enhance my financial planning practice. College Inside Track opened my eyes to the complicated world of college planning. While I considered myself knowledgeable about college planning prior to attending the chapter meeting, I quickly realized that I am far from an expert.

CIT provided an excellent and engaging speaker who was also a wealth of information whom I will go to in my time of need. College Inside Track is definitely a resource I use for clients with children approaching college and the daunting FAFSA process.
