What People Are Saying

Before our relationship with Foundation College Planning, I was anxious about the whole college process. I was not sure where to begin after visiting colleges with my daughter. I knew there were steps that needed to be taken, but had no idea what had to be done. From our first meeting with Tim Sommers, my mind was at ease. He walked us through the process, explained how tuition was different for each student, depending on the award package they were offered and that we would customize a plan for how we could pay for college without living in a tent! He expressed the importance of applying to many colleges and having those colleges "compete" for my child's enrollment and tuition dollars. Tim also eased my apprehension as far as the major my daughter had chosen. Fashion design is not a widespread major as some others and therefore the choices are not as plentiful. Tim helped us reveal the best colleges that would fit my daughter's needs.

We also utilized the appeal department when a college [my daughter] wanted to attend did not offer as much as a competitor college. With the help of Foundation College Planning and Allison McCoy, we were able to secure an appeal award of an additional $24,000 over four years. I have already recommended Foundation College Planning to friends and family and look forward to working with them in the future with my [younger] daughter.

We were feeling overwhelmed as a family with the whole college planning process. Within the first two months of working with Foundation College Planning, the confusion and anxiety we were feeling was replaced by a structured plan for us to pay for college, and for our son to navigate the application process. I'm so glad we have been working with Foundation College Planning, because we are now better prepared and our family’s life is much less stressful!

- Cathy & Dominic D., Sewell, NJ

Our family was feeling anxious about planning for college before we started working with Foundation College Planning. Almost immediately upon enrolling in the program, I felt peace of mind that I would be able to send my grandchild to college. I knew nothing about the college application process – Tim and Foundation College Planning walked us through the process, from assisting with the completion of the financial aid forms, to keeping us on track with all the application deadlines, to evaluating the award offers to be able to choose the best college for my grandchild.  

- Fran D. Sewell, NJ

Our family was concerned and worried about how we would be able to finance two children in college. We began working with Tim and Foundation College Planning, and right away, we started to feel more organized. We had much less worry and stress, and felt confident that we could manage the process. Working with Foundation College Planning has made our family’s life more enjoyable because we are now able to spend more time together and less time on paper work.  

- Lisa & Tom J. Cherry Hill, NJ

Our family was nervous and worried about the process of planning for college – from selecting schools and applying to them, to determining how to pay for it once we settled on a school. Within the first two months of getting enrolled in the program, our family’s life became much less stressful. My son was able to navigate the college process independently, which was a huge relief because I am a single working parent. I'm thrilled we made the choice to work with Foundation College Planning, because today our family’s life is calm and we feel confident that we have made the correct choices regarding college application and admission decisions. Thanks for the awesome support!!!  

- Julia G., Cherry Hill, NJ

As we started the planning process for our daughter to attend college, our family was feeling overwhelmed. Once we were enrolled in the program, we immediately felt a sense of relief. We were able to focus on other things knowing Foundation College Planning offered continual guidance and assistance throughout the college planning process, making sure that we completed all applications and forms correctly, and that we never missed a deadline. I'm so glad we have been working with Foundation College Planning, because today our family’s life is much less stressful about the college planning process, knowing the guidance and support were always offered.  

- Dan K., Sewell, NJ

Before working with Tim and FCP our family was uninformed of the complexity of applying to college. We were overwhelmed and anxious. There was a fear of the unknown. Within the first two months of using FCP’s services we felt a sense of reassurance that we had some resources, support, and the beginning of a plan. We felt a sense of comfort knowing there was guidance and structure in navigating what was unknown territory for us. As a single parent, I felt relieved that an enormous burden was being shared and thereby lessened. I now feel RELIEVED, HOPEFUL AND EXCITED. Relieved and excited that through the college search process, my daughter found the best fit in the college she chose. I am hopeful because the college she chose has different levels of support to ensure success of their students. I am delighted that my daughter is going to one of the "reach" schools she applied to. And because of the financial aid package she received, we feel more confident that we can manage the cost of financing her education.  

- Kathleen D. Marlton, NJ

Our family was in a state of total chaos about which direction to take or even where to start with the college planning process until we found Tim and Allison at Foundation College Planning. Within the first two months of getting enrolled in the program, we were able to clearly see a concise path and a set of goals that were not apparent initially. I'm so glad we have been working with Foundation College Planning and CPN because today our family’s life is "right on track" and our daughter was accepted into one of her top schools and even made the cheer team. Without Tim and Allison, her future may not have been so clear and concrete. We are both extremely excited and the Foundation College Planning team walked with us every step of the way. And, always with a positive attitude and a SMILE. Thank you so very much!!!  

- Cynthia C. Blackwood, NJ

Before enlisting Foundation College Planning’s services, our family just did not know where to start. Within the first two months of getting enrolled in the program, we had peace of mind and focus on helping our daughter getting to college. I'm so glad we have been working with Foundation College Planning, because today we feel confident and secure in the plan we developed to pay for college while being able to maintain our goals for retirement.  

- Amy & Scott M., Cherry Hill, NJ

Before we began working with Foundation College Planning, our family was anxious about having our daughter get the best education for a fair price. Within the first two months of getting enrolled in the program, we were able to secure money saved for college so that it didn't count against our financial aid assistance. We were given an estimated EFC that eased our minds about selecting higher-priced colleges. The estimated FASFA and final FASFA were completed for us, and our daughter selected a small college that she hadn’t even planned on applying to before she spoke to the counselors at CPN. I'm so glad we have been working with Foundation College Planning because today our daughter has chosen a college she loves, and received an amazing financial aid package as well. The process was very easy and Tim was very thorough. We highly recommend enlisting the help of Foundation College Planning if you have a student in high school that is planning to attend college!  

- Lisa E. Blackwood, NJ

Before getting your service, our family was confused and concerned about the costs associated with college as well as the process of completing forms and selecting the appropriate schools. Within the first two months of getting enrolled in the program, we became more relaxed with the college selection and enrollment process, gained a better understanding of what to expect, and received some very sound financial information to help provide a portion of the cost for our daughter to attend an out of state college. I'm so glad we have been working with Foundation College Planning, because today our family’s time is not spent worrying about the whole college process but instead we can focus on high school graduation and enjoying the remaining time we have with our daughter before she goes off to college.  

- Jeffrey B., Mt. Laurel, NJ

Our family was quite anxious about the things that needed to be done in preparation for and in applying for college. We really needed the help of someone who is knowledgeable having gone through the process, and having guided people through it. Once we connected with Tim, he was able to advise us, tell us about the various forms that needed to be prepared, and set up a schedule and a time table when each was due. Within the first two months of getting enrolled in the program, these are the things that improved in our family’s life. We felt much more at ease knowing that everything that needed to be done would be done in a correct and timely fashion. We were also able to connect with specialists and advisors for specific information in their areas of specialty. I'm so glad we have been working with Foundation College Planning, because today our family’s life is much less stressful, since all that needed to be done was, with the help of the network, accomplished, and our daughter had a number of very attractive college offers.  

- Leonard R., Cherry Hill, NJ

Before getting your service, our family was very concerned about our daughter's college planning and cost. Within the first two months of getting enrolled in the program, these are the things that improved in our family’s life: Tim has provided us with significant peace of mind with information, structure and support to fully understand our options. He is always there for us whenever we need him. I'm so glad we have been working with Foundation College Planning, because today our family’s life is much less stressful and we'd definitely recommend this service to every parent.  

- LiShu R., Cherry Hill, NJ

My family and I are happy that we decided to go to the free seminar Tim gave at our local library. Tim took the confusion out of the whole college search process. Not only on the financial level of how to pay for college, but what schools may be a good fit for our daughter. Our only regret is that we didn't meet Tim while our daughter was in 8th grade or a freshman. We would have saved money consolidating everything with Foundation College Planning and CPN and not trying to do everything ala carte such as SAT & ACT prep. When our daughter made her final selection and went with a great offer, Tim didn't stop there – CPN drafted a letter asking for more funds and a month later she received a larger award. That award alone more than paid for FCP’s total service. I highly recommend Foundation College Planning, and starting earlier than junior or senior year.

Prior to getting your service, our family was anxious. Within the first two months of getting enrolled in the program, things improved in our family’s life. I'm so glad we are working with Foundation College Planning.  

- Paul P., Cherry Hill, NJ

Our family was very concerned about how to proceed, where to go or whom to reach out to with questions, the college search, and the financial aid application process, etc. We were in awe of services we received from Tim and Rebecca i.e. we were provided with information, structure and support to fully understand our options. They have provided timely support and structure to get the information in and submitted for the FAFSA form (which was the biggest help as we found FAFSA application an arduous one) and guidance and support in optimizing my daughter’s financial package. Their support has provided us with significant peace of mind that, given our hectic life, nothing would fall through the cracks. The staff has all been courteous, well organized, supportive and accommodating. We are now a Fan of Tim, Rebecca and CPN and I highly recommend this service. We are a Fan of Foundation College Planning because they made the entire process easy and more importantly were able to give us options that we were unaware existed. I like time to think about things and I do not feel pressured to make decisions. They have been very good at listening and understanding our individual family issues.

Our family was concerned about the college planning process. Within the first two months of getting enrolled in the program, we began to feel more secure. I'm so glad we have been working with Foundation College Planning, because today we have peace of mind and feel more confident.  

- Susie R., Cherry Hill, NJ

I am very happy with the service Foundation College Planning gave us. After our first meeting with Tim, he put everything into perspective for us laying out step by step what we had to do to get our daughter ready for college. From filling out our FAFSA reports to telling us how to get college loans for any monies that scholarships didn't cover. My wife and I literally had no idea how we were going to get these things done. Tim and his office were there for us from start to finish, I have to say we saved thousands of dollars using their service. I highly recommend Foundation College Planning.  

- Kerry & Linda Y., Cherry Hill, NJ

Before getting your service, our family was concerned about college planning. Within the first two months of getting enrolled in the program, anxiety about the entire process went away completely. I'm so glad we have been working with Foundation College Planning, because today our family’s life is stress free from college worries. Tim and his staff are very attentive and helpful in all areas of the process. I would highly recommend them to anyone in need of a college planner.
