Ryan Clark, MBA, CCPS

Real Life Experiences Shaped his Career Choice

As the son of a teacher and small business owner, Ryan's parents struggled to pay for their two boys to attend college. Ryan has a family with two children of his own and decided to investigate why attending college had become so expensive and complicated. He discovered that the current strategies about getting into college and receiving financial assistance had changed dramatically over the years. Still, many high schools are perpetuating these outdated strategies. Universities have become much more sophisticated, and the admission process has become more competitive and complicated.

Ryan also found that the options families had to help them with selecting colleges did very little on educating students on how to make this $100,000 decision the right way. Those same options also did not advise families on helping lower the cost or improve how these families pay for college. Ryan became extremely dissatisfied with the current state of college planning and decided to fill this education and coaching gap by founding Clark College Consulting in 2004.

"With the help of Clark College Consulting, our daughter got a full-ride scholarship!"

- Jose Munoz

"We saved over $150,000 in college costs. A huge return on the cost of Ryan's services!"

- Ed Machen

"Hannah got scholarship offers from ten universities, like UNC, Wake Forest.. total scholarships totaled over $1 Million"

- Thomas Witner
