CFG founders give advice to families paying for college

Posted on October 8th, 2014

As parents of college-bound students know, applying to college is more than a financial decision–it’s an emotional one as well.

Our founders Rick Ross and Andy Leardini recently appeared on Winging it! Buffalo Style to discuss the challenges families and students face when choosing a college and figuring out how to pay for it.

Taking the emotion out of the college decision

In the video below, Rick and Andy discuss the difficulty of evaluating affordability when a student is emotionally invested in attending a certain college whose price may be out of reach for the family.

As hard as it may be, they advise families take the emotion out of the decision and treat the choice of where to send their child to college as a business transaction, evaluating affordability and the return on investment of the potential college degree.
