What Students Say

I am saving more money than I ever imagined using this!

Useful for tracking loans

I have seen how useful the app has been for other people in my family who are going to college, like my brother. It helps reign a person in and prevents people like my brother seeing his money slip through the cracks. I do believe that one downside is that the app does not keep track of things like a person’s credit score, which is useful in student loan refinancing. Additionally, an AI is not always the best at determining how to help a student with their financial situation (as it’s automated).
