My College Advisor LLC Launches Online College Selection, Admissions and Finance System

HARTSDALE, NY--(Marketwire - March 22, 2010) - After years of research, My College Advisor [MCA] is now making available the only US patented college selection system, incorporated into a comprehensive program for finding, getting into and financing a student's best fit college.

MCA has put together a team of personal college consultants dedicated to helping students identify and get into their best fit schools. "Our goal is to create a level playing field, for all students who do not have access to private consulting services," said Anthony J. Guerra, Chairman, MCA LLC. At an introductory price of $69.95 for a one-year subscription, MCA has achieved that goal by providing the best of personalized college admissions consulting at a small fraction of the cost.

The College admissions process can be one of the most stressful events in a family's life and the stakes are high. College is expensive and costs are rising rapidly, yet only 53% of college students pursuing a four-year degree earn it within 6 years. In addition, 28% of freshmen nationally do not continue their studies at their original school. Finding the right school for a student is critical and using objective measurable criteria, MCA recommends only schools that fit a student's profile and have a track record of supporting student success.

A key feature is the Out-of-Pocket Cost Calculator. For many families there will be a big difference between a college's "sticker price" and the amount they will actually pay. (For example, private schools with a high "sticker price" may cost some students less than lower-priced public schools.) The calculator estimates a family's real out-of-pocket cost for all of the colleges they are considering to allow for better planning and decision making.

Other MCA features include easy-to-use e-books, an online guidebook with detailed information on thousands of colleges, and utilities that provide admissions deadlines and test requirements for each school on a family's list. "The MCA Program is designed to educate and guide families through the college admissions process and reduce their overall stress levels," said Gustavo Larramendi, CEO.
