College access needs reform.
High schoolers spend hours scouring blogs and national reports for relevant data as they apply to college, while the price of hiring an admissions consultant is on average $5,000. Our goal is to increase access to quality admissions guidance without sacrificing a personalized learning experience. By making college application strategy more available, we put the power to apply in their hands.

Education technology needs to adapt 
40% of college applications are submitted by a mobile device. It speaks to the busy nature of high school students. Most of their application is submitted on the fly between transit to a game or late at night when their homework is finished. We are developing a platform that works for them: that’s fast, informed, and mobile.
