Good- Some Suggestions


This free app collects a lot of free information in one place. More useful than you think.

Lists all majors and not just areas, which is great.

Includes community colleges, which is a plus for some.

Unfortunately, with the slot-machine style you can only pick one state, major, or price at a time. This is really limiting.

Also, it has a stat rating for acceptance rate. I'd love the number instead of or in addition to this.

Overall I'd say get the app and hope for updates. This app has potential.

Cannot enter a grad school that I am looking for

Hello Kitty Tennessee

I just downloaded this app because I am considering going to grad school. I applied my filters, etc. When I entered a school that I'm looking for (in my field of study), it would not produce any results. Instead, it would show schools that do not have my field and are private. Please improve this app! Thank you.



Completely worthless app. Go online and use any number of colleges search tools that actually provide some value able information.
