"High school students find it stressful thinking and planning for future careers, majors and college.
What careers are growing? What majors are required for my future career? Which colleges have my major?
Can I get into those colleges? These questions (and more) are answered by PlanMyCollege. Students can
explore careers, majors and colleges, then use their research to build their personal list of colleges.
I like that PlanMyCollege goes a step farther. Each student’s profile (both academic and personal characteristics)
are evaluated, and a match is made for Target, Reach and Likely college admissions outcomes. This helps students
easily and accurately create a balanced list of colleges to apply to. They can maximize scholarships and admissions
while reducing stress in the process through this unique and easy to use online tool."
"Most college counselors have too many students to really be able to engage with all of them in a meaningful and
productive way. PlanMyCollege was created to help all students by taking the guess work out of the application
process and to helping them to achieve success. Getting into college should be accessible, affordable and achievable
to all. That is why PlanMyCollege is such a wonderful tool for students."
"PlanMyCollege's extensive Action Plan provides valuable information for students, and is very intuitive to use. When
searching for colleges, I love being able to click on a college to learn more about it, and the search filters are
useful as well. The application deadlines and status tracker are both very helpful and relevant. I also like the idea
of having a former admissions officer review my application. "

"On the first look, I knew PlanMyCollege was a product designed for me. It feels personal, and the steps are very clear.
It makes preparing for college a smooth process, and gives me guidance instead of pressure. I find it very helpful that
the colleges are listed with key stats like acceptance rate, in-state cost and out-of-state cost. I wish I had this tool
earlier, and I will definitely follow the Action Plan to prepare for college."
