"The search for the right college for your child is a complex and daunting task.  Ryan simplified every step of the process for us - from funding to selecting the perfect college fit for our daughter.  I can't imagine how we would have done this without your help!  Thank you Ryan - we will definitely be back with our son in a couple of years."

"Amazingly, our son is basically going to Baylor for less than the cost of Texas A&M and Texas Tech.  I am completely satisfied with the services provided by Ryan Thomson and recommend his services to anyone seeking assistance with college funding."
Cris D., Round Rock

"College Funding Specialists has been so amazing in providing me with financial expertise to be able to afford college for my children! As a single mom, I was truly struggling in deciding how to fund college for my kids, but with the help and guidance from CFS, I have paid for college at Texas A&M for my son, who is graduating this May, and a daughter, who is a Freshman at A&M!  I have especially felt the benefit since I have had both in college at the same time!  CFS has taken care of all the financial aid paperwork, which was a huge relief!  CFS is even helping my son work out his funding for Grad school.  I am so very grateful for all of their assistance!  I couldn't have done it without them."

"I really like working with Ryan of College Funding Specialists.  He is always very responsive and I feel that he is truly interested in my son's ability to attend the very expensive private college that he selected.  My son's college costs are now two thirds funded, which is a great relief.  I am very busy with raising two boys and working full time.  It is very helpful to have CFS...."
