• Assess tuition, room and board and other fees, and financial aid data. Even compare the cost of education to post-graduate salary histories.

• For colleges with rolling admissions, view priority deadlines for scholarships and financial aid so that you don’t miss the opportunity to qualify. Just tap on a date to add it to your calendar!

• Save slices of information on your favorite colleges in one place for quick and easy viewing later so you can skip taking notes.

• Take advantage of quick links and fast facts to speed your search without having to power up the desktop.

In a league of its own

Jimmy H. Greene

If you want to narrow down your college choices, then CollegeHunch is the best place to start since it gives you such a vast array of statistics that you almost feel like you know what makes the freshmen class and college tick. There may be other sources that cover thousands of colleges but they provide a fraction of the data and certainly don’t have information that must be sourced by hand, such as the latest cost of attendance or priority scholarship deadlines. I actually like the fact that the developer focused on four-year colleges and created great tools rather than just adding as many colleges as possible.

Makes everything else obsolete


The best way to appreciate this app is to try the other college apps and websites. If you want a calendar with real deadlines, a complete list of requirements and the latest tuition, with fast facts that give even more information, there is nothing that even comes close. And, if you consider all the features, it's even less of a contest. Try the rest and you'll probably agree that there is no better way to research colleges.

Excellent App with Actionable Information for Parents


I found this app doing an App Store search and downloaded it based on reviews. After the download and reviewing the screen tips, I started searching based on my daughter’s criteria. I saved 15 schools and paid the very reasonable $2.99 to have the information downloaded into an Excel spreadsheet. Before I found this app, I was mentally preparing to make my own spreadsheet based on cobbling information from various sources. The ease and relevance of getting the info is great. The app is easy to use with the filters and criteria.

On a separate note, I emailed the College Hunch support email at 3:30PM CT on a Monday and received a very detailed answer to my question within 2 hours.

As a parent new to the college search helping my daughter this is a great app.

Thank you!
