    "My wife and I can't thank College Connect 101 enough for helping our son and daughter with the college application process, including financial aid. Many times you went the extra yard for our family. Only with your guidance and attention to detail that those applications and forms required did our college dream for our children become a reality. We would ask you again, in a heartbeat, to help us if we had to do this all over again. GO IRISH! and GO BRONCOS!"

    "We used College Connect 101’s services for both of our daughters’ college admissions process. We could not have been more pleased. Gigi oversaw the entire process from resume writing, school selection, applications, testing, essay writing, through completion of the FAFSA forms. Not only is Gigi thorough and proficient in every part of the process she was a dream to work with not only for us as parents but for the kids as well. Somehow Gigi manages to take the pain out of this process for her students. Both of our girls actually looked forward to the time spent with Gigi in her office. She acts as a confidante, counselor, and friend as well as an educational consultant. I can’t say enough positive things about Gigi’s qualifications and College Connect 101's great results."

    "I have used College Connect 101 for two consecutive years to complete my daughter’s FAFSA, for financial aid advice and for scholarship advice and it has been a life saver! Gigi was able to successfully appeal a parent loan denial prior to my daughter entering her first year of college. I did not encounter any residual financial aid difficulties when I usedCollege Connect 101 to enroll my daughter for her second year of college. I highly recommend utilizing College Connect 101 for all of your college financial needs whether you’re a parent of a current or a prospective college student!"

    "College Connect 101 made us feel at ease while assisting our family with the college application and financial aid process. We are not an affluent family, but College Connect 101 helped us to choose programs that were within our budget and allowed us to send our son to school comfortably. We are forever grateful for all your dedication and hard work."

    "I cannot thank Gigi enough for all that she has done for both of my sons! Gigi is extremely strategic and knowledgeable especially when it comes to financial aid. She gave us ideas and suggestions on how to get more grants and scholarships directly from the school.

    My oldest son just graduated from NYU and Gigi was able to secure a $20,000 grant four years in a row. In addition to that she expertly crafted our appeal letters which lead to more grants & scholarships. Our youngest son was originally awarded $5,000 in grants this year, but with Gigi's amazing guidance, that $5,000 turned into over $40,000 in grants and scholarships! We haven't taken out any loans so far! I would DEFINITELY recommend using Gigi's services to guide you throughout your entire college process."
