FEE STRUCTURE

Fees and other nitty-gritty information:

PRIMARY APPLICATION, SECONDARY APPLICATION, & INTERVIEW PREPARATION/MOCK INTERVIEWING PROCESS:
- Initial brief telephone discussion to assess our ability to work together: Complimentary. (Not a working session.) The first chat is merely a short "Hi how are you, this is how I work with clients" conversation. If you feel comfortable working with me, then we schedule a working appointment.

- I have a ONE (1) hour pre-paid minumum fee ($400). All work thereafter is charged on a time-spent (pro-rata) basis at the rate of $400/hr., balance due statements are billed at the end of the month.


All clients:
- The time we schedule is for you exclusively, and therefore I require a 24 hr. cancellation notice.
- Longer emails between us usually constitute 5-10 min. of consulting time and are billed as such. (Most emails are short and therefore are complimentary.)
- Missed appointments are charged in full.

METHOD OF PAYMENT

I have a ONE (1) hour minimum fee of $400, payableat least 24 in advance of our scheduled meeting.

All follow-up work is charged on a time-spent (pro-rata) basis at the rate of $400/hr., balances are due and payable by the 30th of the month. There is a link to PayPal on my home page.

A service charge of 1.5% per month is applied to all balances not paid by the 30th of the month.
