Ratings and Reviews
I recently downloaded this cause I’ve just had so many questions about what to expect for college. It’s so great to hear from people who have been in my shoes and have also been where I want to be. When I post a question, the mentors are quick to reply, and with solid, helpful advice that I can use to my advantage. I really recommend this app for any high schoolers having trouble when it comes to college decisions, preparations, and expectations. One downside I saw was that you can’t select multiple ethnicities, which is unfair for me and others with two or more ethnic backgrounds. Overall, it’s worth the download!!
I wish I had access to Hindsight when I was in high school struggling to realize what I wanted out of my college experience and how certain universities weighed certain aspects of the application. I also didn’t have access to the advice and mentorship that is available on Hindsight. As a mentor, I hope to help students get a better understanding of the college experience and offer any insight that I can!
I really wish I had this resource when I was in high school! As a mentor, I love helping aspiring students. Being a first generation college student, I know how hard it can be to get advice. On the app, students can ask questions about the application process, student life at different colleges, classes to take, you name it. Real college students give their genuine advice. For free!
