SHOW ME THE MONEY

May 1, 2011

 

Go ahead and try it. You have to admit it really does feel great to shout "Show me the money!" And once you earn stellar standardized test scores, you have earned the right to have the same attitude when negotiating financial packages with universities. High SAT/ACT scores are potentially worth tens of thousands of dollars; high GMAT/GRE/LSAT can be worth hundreds of thousands and translate to millions more earned over the course of a lifetime.

 

 

 

So every minute and every dollar invested in preparation can reap great rewards. How great? Let's do the math. Florida Bright Futures scholarships are worth $76 or $101 per credit hour. That means, if they are maintained for the duration of four years and used for the average requirement of 120 credits for a Bachelor's degree, they are worth $9,120-$12,120. Once you figure in the many other scholarships granted by schools that are based on test scores, they can be easily be worth another $10,000-$40,000 or more. So even if you were to put in a whopping 100 hours of study, you could actually get paid $100-$400/hr for that time that you put into training. Now consider that 100 hours is not really reasonable or necessary. For every hour of direct tutoring with me, you have about two hours of independent practice for homework. So a SuccessPrepper plan typically requires about 30 hours in total, which can translate to making $300-$1200/hr. So show me the commitment, and I'll show you the cash :) ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
