A very well designed app

Really easy to use and intuitive.

Exactly What I was looking for

I have been searching for an organized and handy App like this. Something to hold all of the colleges I’m considering in an easy and accessible layout.

I do, however, have a small issue. There are certain programs I’m more interested in; for instance, I am looking into NYU but specifically the Tisch School of Arts.

Now, yes the app does direct me to the website for further inquiries, but that does defeat the purpose of this glorious app.

Maybe add some drop downs for programs and what they specifically require for applicants to prepare.

Thanks for a great app though!

Great, please add a school

I really like this app. This is exactly what I have been looking for- a place where all deadlines are neatly organized for the schools I am applying for. Please, can you add Washington State University Vancouver? I see you have Pullman, but not Vancouver. Also, it would be cool to see the tasks you previously checked off, and uncheck them incase you checked it finished accidentally.

Thanks for the great app!
