What's New

 

  • Faster performance.  You should be noticing zippier performance, thanks to some tweaks we've made to the application.
  • Updated admissions data.  With few exceptions, Class of 2018 admissions data is now in place for the schools we cover. Better yet, we've even begun including Class of 2019 admission rates to make sure you're working with the latest and greatest information available.  Class of 2019 admission rates are now available for: Amherst, Bates, Boston University, BYU, Brown, Dartmouth, George Washington University, Georgetown, Harvard, Harvey Mudd, Johns Hopkins, MIT, NYU, Northwestern, Pitzer, Princeton, Stanford, University of Chicago, Notre Dame, University of Pennsylvania, USC, Wake Forest, Williams and Yale.
  • Expanded school coverage.  We've been able to respond to just about every request we've gotten from you regarding school coverage.  Standard Edition subscribers now have 270+ top colleges and universities to choose from when creating their college lists.  Recent additions to the list include: Menlo College, University of Maine, Notre Dame de Namur, Cal Lutheran, Woodbury University, Whittier College, University of Utah, Webb Institute and Rose-Hulman. Here's a list of the schools we currently cover.  
  • Department-specific admission rates.  For College Kickstart Plus Edition subscribers, our list of institutions with department-specific admissions data has grown to 34 schools and over 200 departments.  Whether you're considering engineering, business, arts and letters or a host of other majors, we'll give you reported admission rates for these departments instead of an overall rate to help you better gauge your competitiveness.  Here's what's now available:
