A brief list of colleges our students attend

WORTH EVERY CENT! During a very overwhelming and emotional time of college applications in addition to attending numerous seminars examining the college financial aid process, I am so thankful to have found Mrs. Ini. Your thorough knowledge of the college applications and financial aid system and your personal assistance every step of the process was a life saver. You are also easy to work with and truly cares! I would highly recommend utilizing your services.

After several years of continued help and support, it is my sincere pleasure to recommend Mrs. Paula Ini as a college advisor. Since I first retained your help to simplify the mess of red tape that is the college admissions and aid process, you have always made yourself available to guide me through the maze and take care of the numerous details. With your help, I was able to attend and minimize the cost of  a prestigious private university, and, as such, I would like to continue by retaining you to help my sister, a soon to be freshman. You are professional, courteous, and (above all) a true asset, and I recommend you to anyone interested in making the college planning process easier while saving money at the same time.

Paula’s assistance to us with our daughter’s university education application & financing was especially timely. Coming back from 10 of the previous 12 years overseas in the military and with one daughter already in university, we were in less than the best condition to support for our second daughter’s university plans. You helped us prioritize, get our finances in order, and get the most out of our time. You are honest and the most dedicated person I know.
