Resources & People Mentioned
Han’s bio (in his own words): I am a national college advisor. National means I’ve worked with families and colleges from every state in the country. College advisor means I teach kids how to take ownership of their life with college as its platform. College advisor also means that I save parents thousands on college costs. My job is to guide and direct families through the complicated process of college. We begin by teaching families the college perspective and what colleges want from families. We then build a personalized college list matching the qualifications, interests, and needs of the student family. This puts the family in control! We then implement our winning game-plan putting people on the right colleges, meeting the right people, and asking the right questions. This is the difference-maker, the game-changer to better understanding how the college does its business and understanding real opportunity…what it is, not what it seems. This is the focus of our exclusive “5 Step Approach” to- • Winning preferred admission acceptances • Maximizing scholarship potential • Choosing the right college major • Getting college right without bankrupting the family-finance I work with high school student-families who want to be more knowledgeable of the process and more on top of their game when its needed most. I created CollegeLogic to be a valuable resource for helping families quickly get started in the college process with a personalized game-plan and detailed play-book. Within hours, a family will have a knowledge-based strategy at their fingertips to follow. CollegeLogic is a close, personal resource for helping families solve the complex and expensive college equation. If you can dream, then we can help make your dream become reality. On a spring afternoon day in 2002, I witnessed a “parent-rant” and decided right then that I would spend the rest of my life helping families get college right. Since then, I have- • Presented over 500 educational talks and workshops related to achieving college success • Spoken in front of 50,000+ families • Worked with hundreds of families from around the world in finding their right college fit • Saved parents millions of dollars collectively on college costs • Published two Books, two workbooks, and many articles on college topics • Been interviewed and published on USA Today, Forbes, CNBC, Fast Company, MSN, Inc.500, Human Resource Executive, Private School Review, The Fiscal Times, and many more My families secure improved college options, save on college costs, make the right college choice, and get the college experience they want. This is my work. It’s a big responsibility, but I love it!
