Over 90% of College Lists Need Improvement

As most of you know, we completed a beta test of College Kickstart at the end of July.  With student and parent participants from public and private schools, our goal was to measure how effective we could be in helping users build a sensible college plan.

The results are in, and we're quite excited by the findings:

  • Needed list improvements were identified for 91% of users
  • Odds-boosting early admission opportunities were found for 91% of users
  • Work and cost avoidance opportunities were found for 81% of users

What's even more compelling is how much College Kickstart is boosting odds and setting up applicants to avoid unnecessary work and cost:

  • On average, 2.6 early admission opportunities were identified, resulting in a 63% boost in odds
  • On average, up to 4.2 applications could potentially be avoided, saving up to $282 in admission fees
