When I received my financial aid package from my school earlier this year, I had a remaining balance of $23,000 to cover...I was stressed out as to how I would do it by the time my bill was due 6 months later in early August. Fast forward to September 2, I checked my student account and the balance said $0! I also have almost $10,000 in additional scholarship money for future semesters. Before school even started, I was able to secure a two-year paid fellowship and a paid undergraduate research position all within my field of study.
The Academic Hustle changed my life! I earned $200,000 on a full-tuition scholarship to my dream school at Morehouse College and $50,000 in funding for a program that prepared me for graduate school. I applied successfully to the #1 Dental School in the world at the University of Michigan with over $80,000. When I graduated, I secured a job paying me a base salary of $150,000 annually. My family is now in a completely different income bracket.

The information he provided us with was really helpful, and goes beyond school and scholarship help, but also helps with real world situations. The meetings were very interactive, and he let us express our talents, weak areas that we needed help with, and he guided us in the right directions to become debt free… He truly cares for us as students and wants to see us all prosper. I thank God I was able to partake in his activities.
