How to App-ly to College
says: Applying to college can be really time-consuming, really stressful, and really confusing. Here are a handful of apps that can help high-school students save time, reduce stress, and find their way through the maze that is the application process.
Simple Spreadsheet (free/ads)
One of the most crucial elements of a successful college search is organization. It's a good idea to make a spreadsheet of potential schools and their stats, and Simple Spreadsheet is a good way to take it with you-- to informational meetings, campus tours, and more.
School Finder College Search
Next you actually have to figure out where you want to apply. This app lets you search for good-fit schools based on criteria like location or projected major.
It's usually helpful to visit your potential schools before you apply, which often leads to everybody's favorite junior- or senior-year adventure: the road-trip college circuit. If you're planning to visit multiple schools--especially on the same trip--a reliable trip-planner like Google Maps is a must.
When you visit a school, one of the best things you can do is talk to the students there and get the real story. And when you're applying to a school, this app passes along advice from current college students on how to maximize your chances of acceptance.
You can stay on top of all your application due dates with Deadlines Calendar. It's simple to use, and includes a function that lets you estimate the time required to complete each task.
