Ratings and Reviews
Good concept, needs improvement
I think this app can and will go places, it just needs some more features than just personality quizzes. I do actually like that they offer college matches based on your personality. Personally, I'd like to see more features in this app. Maybe something like SAT or ACT tricks & tips? Or possibly SAT or ACT practice

Thanks so much for the kinds words. We've gone ahead and added a ton of new features and hope you'll check them out.
You can add what you want to major in now; 2. You can also add a ton of other preferences (AND you can indicate things that you're NOT looking for). For example, you can say you want a school that has computer science majors, is hot and dry OR cold, and is NOT massive or big). 3. We've updated the SAT scale so you can now input scores on either the old (2400) or new (1600) scales; 4. Your matches are now associated with the preferences you indicate (instead of the personality quizzes). Quizzes are still there if you're looking to discover things about yourself though. 5. We have now added an extensive advice section with over 400 pieces about helping to improve your chances. We hope you'll take another look and thanks again for the review!
Phenomenal tool for peeps on the college search!
This is a fantastic way for high schoolers, transfer students, and otherwise prospective college students to find all the information they need to decide what colleges are for them. It gives you the ability to take quizzes, read about advice from past students that went through the same process, and it offers a plethora of information on each campus that may interest you. Use it!!
Not what I thought
I thought this app would help me keep track of colleges and help me REALLY dig deep about finding the perfect college but it's just a personality quiz app. You take these stupid quizzes that really don't have anything to do with finding a college. The app doesn't even ask what you plan to major in so how can it pick the right colleges for you if they only want to know what your "stereotype" is or if you're a hipster or party-animal. Plus their results or totally BS. They said I loved the 60s but I'm definitely a 90s child. This app didn't help me at all. I deleted it after the first day 😒😒😒

Hi! Thanks so much for writing in - we're so sorry to hear about your experience. We've actually made a ton of changes recently and have added a lot of new features to the app - including the ability to create a full preference profile where you can indicate exactly what you're looking for in a college (i.e. majors, location, weather, degree type, etc) and what you're looking to avoid (i.e. I never want to go to a massive school). The personality quizzes are still there to allow you to discover elements about yourself and we've tweaked them so you might get better results. We also added a full advice section that has over 400 articles on everything from how many times to take the SAT or ACT to what not to write your college essays about. We do hope you'll give it another shot!
