There are more than 4,000 universities and colleges nationwide and the problem becomes pretty clear: students have no shot of actually finding the right college for them.
The short of it is that colleges are incentivized to put students in tremendous debt rather than graduating them on-time without debilitating debt. Some colleges—the ones that we've identified—ensure that students have their needs met, incluiding financials, social and emotional needs, and offering degrees that lead to employment.
We also use large sets of data, trends, and research, not a single person's experience or rumor. We made sure to use the same data source to remain consistent and reliable. Finally, the social fit questions were adapted from research. We're happy to tell you all about this research and data sources. Just ask!
