Pretty good estimator
This tool helped me save a lot of application money, showed me what I was up against instead of me going in blind. I recommend for someone who is unsure of acceptance into a university
It was useful on a laptop but since my school gives us barely an education I applied to a school that they said I had a 100% chance at getting in and I didn't get in.
When I was first starting to navigate the application process, CollegeVine helped me to set realistic goals based on which schools they thought I should apply for.
College Fortune Cookie
I like the fact that CollegeVine not only gives you standard information about the college but also allows you to look for specific information on said college, and is able to calculate your chances of getting into that college based on personal information. It's nice to know which colleges not to strive for before I make a mistake.
Collegevine helped me curate my college list with its excellent chancing tools and vast amount of resources. Would recommend!
Love that it saves you time in calculating your chance to get into college. It can be discouraging to sit through a long application to a school only to be rejected.
Good for those in the middle of the application process
I'm not exactly in the application process so my results were a bit off (no sat or act scores yet) but it gave me a good idea of what options are in the mix and how competitive each school is.
Helped save me time and money
This helped me save money on application fees. Colleges that I was likely to get into and I was interested in I sent in an application. Colleges that I was unlikely to get into I didn't bother sending an application into due to me wanting to save money. I was happy with any other college that I was likely to get into.
If you aren't picky with the college you want to go to, and you are likely to get into your first couple of picks, don't waste money on applications to other colleges you don't care for/might be unlikely to get into.
Collegevine gives one the ability to view their chances of getting into their dream school. Although sometimes the results may hurt, it is very realistic and gives an idea of what areas you may need to improve upon If you really want to get it!
Helped me organize my ideas for college
I have been really nervous about college applications, as everybody must be. Being able to compare all aspects of my life beyond test scores made me feel a little better. There are options for scholarships and finding more colleges to add to your application list.
