The College Scoop!
The world of college is vast and ever-changing. There are over 5,000 colleges in the United States and numerous more around the world, each offering a unique set of experiences, opportunities, and pitfalls for the students who choose to attend. There are colleges where its student base flourishes as undergraduates and as alumni. These colleges set their students up for success in the job market, provide a high-quality education, and molds young people into the leaders of tomorrow. However, there are also colleges that graduates less than 10% of its students on time, provides countless negative experiences, and gives students and families $100,000 or more in student loans.
Collegize recognizes the stress of selecting colleges and will walk through best practices for selecting a best-fit college using our 5 Essential Questions. Consider each question as you evaluate the colleges in the app.
