Pearl and Andy Lockwood host The College Success for Less Show and are attorneys-turned "late stage" college finance consultants. They coach select college-bound teens on the process of choosing and getting into top colleges that will prepare them for success post-college, and they help "Forgotten Middle Class" obtain tuition discounts of 49.1% or more, even if they think they cannot qualify for anything.

Andy wrote three #1 Best Selling books, "How to Pay 'Wholesale' for College," on financial aid strategies, "The Incomparable Applicant," on admissions tips and tactics and "College Essay Insider Secrets," on how to write a killer college essay.

Pearl, a former prosecutor in Queens County, NY, received her B.S. from Cornell University. Andy received his B.A. from Wesleyan University (where he was a member of (not "played for") the basketball team). They each received a J.D. from St. John's University Law School, where they met on the first day. Awwwww.
