Choosing a financial advisor. I added more and more investment accounts over the years and have everything from index funds to reits to direct investment roboadvisors. It’s becoming too much with too much money at stake. Where do I go for an advisor that will act as a fiduciary and will help me optimize for tax as well as estate planning? How to choose one that’s actually good? (Refrain from “you don’t need an advisor”, please.)

So I have an Associates in CS from the now defunct ITT Tech (I was young and dumb fresh out of high school when I enrolled) and now I'm at the point that I want to earn my bachelor's. But of course enrolling back at my previous school is no longer an option. So I'm stuck on either seeing if my transcript will be accepted at a Devry type for-profit, or starting over entirely. I'm just trying to get some thoughts on what others would do in this type of situation.
