Dr. Cynthia Colon: How can we maximize college merit dollars to help pay for our college education?

Dr. Cynthia Colon has been working to help families navigate the college admission process since 2003. They were founded as Co-Ed College Consultants and ran bootcamps in the summer for rising seniors. In 2017, after the launch of her book, “Tips, Tales and Truths for Teens”, the company was reestablished as Dr. Cynthia Colon, Inc. Since 2017, they’ve worked with families of all educational and socio-economic backgrounds to help their teens successfully access competitive 4-year institutions.
