For all of you transferring for the Fall 2017 or Spring 2018 Semester.
If you are still in the process of deciding which schools to apply to, this app is very valuable. It offers a wealth of information about every college. It also lets you search based on many different criteria. It even helps you find schools based on affordability and helps you find scholarships.
2- Common App OnTrack
The Common Application- the website a lot of colleges ask you to apply through, has an app available called Common App OnTrack. Although you can’t actually fill out your application on the mobile app, it gives you a good overview and lets you set reminders which is helpful.
I was introduced to Zeemee after two of the colleges I was applying to gave me the option to upload a Zeemee link. Zeemee lets you showcase your activities in a very visually pleasing way, with photos and description. It also lets you upload a video telling your story. Even if the colleges you’re applying to don’t ask for it, you can give them a link if they give you an opportunity to give “more information."
I once clicked on a video titled something like “The biggest fight on Shark Tank.” Shark Tank is a TV show that lets startup companies pitch their ideas to investors. I started watching it, but gave up before it got to the fight part. The person presenting showcased an app for college students that helps students find scholarships. I applied for a few scholarships using this app.
This one is not an app, it’s a google chrome extension.This is a spelling and grammar editor that works in the background when you type on different websites including the common app. I found it to be extremely helpful when I wrote a lot of essays for college applications. I have a free account with them and I didn’t yet need to upgrade to a paid version.
