A Letter to Parents

Dear Parents,

I hope this letter finds you well, despite the chaos and stress of the college admissions and financial aid process. My name is Fitz Totten, and I founded Find The Right College because I witnessed too many families struggling to find the advice they desperately needed. Many of them expressed frustration with scattered information, outdated resources, and a lack of trustworthy guidance.

I understand the challenges you face as you try to navigate this overwhelming journey and make the best choices for your college-bound teenager. That's why I created Find The Right College—to address these difficulties head-on. Our mission is simple: to provide you with everything you and your student need to find and afford your best college option.

Since graduating from college 28 years ago, my passion has been encouraging higher education opportunities for students like yours. I began my journey within the esteemed admissions offices of Vanderbilt, St. Lawrence and Duke Law, where I gained invaluable firsthand knowledge of top-tier institutions. Building upon that experience, I became an enrollment management consultant for 200+ colleges across the nation, including dozens of the most well known colleges in the world. This diverse background has given me a deep understanding of the complexities and nuances of the admissions process.

After founding Find The Right College, I sought out a financial adviser and tax strategist as a partner, because I knew we needed to better advise families on how to save on the cost of college. In meeting Stuart Canzeri, I knew I had found just the right expert. Together, our partnership has allowed us to provide comprehensive consulting services that are unique in the marketplace and ever-mindful of cost. With our combined wealth of professional knowledge and insights, we aim to be your trusted partners, helping you identify the optimal admissions and financial aid strategy for your family.

With our team by your side, you can approach the college admissions process with confidence and peace of mind. Our dedication to higher education and commitment to empowering families like yours make us reliable resources in your pursuit of finding the right college for your teenager. We encourage you to place your trust in our expertise and allow Find The Right College to be your guide on this transformative path.

Remember, you are not alone in this journey. We are here to support you every step of the way, providing the guidance and resources you need to make informed decisions. Together, let's make the college admissions process a little less daunting and a lot more rewarding.

All my best,

Fitz Totten

Founder, Find The Right College

P.S. We are both fathers, so we can also relate to many of your experiences as parents, too.
