Jordan Schanda had to learn everything about college and scholarships the hard way. After a lot of work and a little bit of trial and error, she was fortunate to be awarded nearly $50,000 for college. Knowing her brother was not the same type of student, she and her mom carefully outlined and documented the process that had worked so successfully. They’ve helped thousands of failies across the country and the world navigate this process so that they can get into their top choice school and win scholarships to pay for their education.
Jordan graduated with honors from University of Arkansas, where she received her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology, minoring in statistics and sustainability. She received her Master of Science in Administrative Studies at Missouri State University.
