AccessConnex Student Testimonial

Read what others have to say about their experience with AccessConnex:


“I feel so much better now – I hadn’t realized that I don’t need to borrow the full amount of loans I was offered in my law school financial aid package. Thanks for helping!”

Graduating senior, City College of New York


"This was my first counseling call with AccessConnex and I could not be more pleased or grateful. My counselor provided me with detailed and clear answers and information, all of which was tailored to my specific circumstances. She was a pleasure to speak to and I would definitely recommend this service to others. Thank you!"

Harvard University Law Student


“It was really helpful to talk to my AccessConnex counselor about the financial aid awards from the schools I’m considering. I appreciated knowing I could use the student loan calculator to estimate different loan repayment terms. It’s a fairly staggering amount of money but it’s good to have an accurate idea of what I’m up against. I found the Project Your Future function immensely helpful! The salary number I’ll need to pay off my loans in 10 years and have reasonable living expenses left over is attainable in bigger markets if I do well at school. Now I have a clear picture of what I need to do to reach my goal.”

Incoming 1L, Vanderbilt Law School


"My AccessConnex counselor was amazing! Very complete explanations of my options and she understood my special economic situation. I was overwhelmed by my finances and she gave me the answers I needed. I am feeling much better now. Thank you so much!"
