Some well known, some not so well known. These are the top sites I’m using to develop my college list and understand my chances.
Again, a well known. This site offers opinions from students on a variety of subjects, ranging from how attractive the guys are to how qualified the professors are.
Preferable to throwing your stats on college confidential forums, Admitster calculates your chances of acceptance at any university. You can also toggle with the factors and see how your chances could go up if you, say, join another club or raise your SAT score 20 more points.
See who got in! This site allows you to purchase in depth applicant profiles (including essays, stats, ect), helping you to see the caliber of students that actually get into the Harvards of the world.
COLLEGE CONFIDENTIAL (don’t hate me)
Sworn enemy of Appblr, known for pretension and crushing dreams; I know, I know… BUT the decision threads (i.e.: UCLA class of 2018) are incredibly helpful for the same reasons as Admitsee.
COLLEGE WEEK LIVE
Online college fairs and information sessions from universities around the world. Extremely helpful for those that don’t have the time to jet off to every city on college list. You can talk to admissions reps, ask questions, ect.
Hope this helps some of you!
