Whether you’re a high school student looking for prospective colleges, an adult learner with a desire to go back to school, or even a parent looking out for a son or daughter, chances are you’re probably utilizing a smartphone to access a lot of information related to higher education. It’s no secret that we’re growing into a more mobile world every day.
The College Prowler app is something you can take with you wherever you go, whether you’re waiting at the bus stop or even visiting a college. Here are some ways it can make your college search a little bit easier:
1. Read reviews of schools. College Prowler reviews can help get you interested in particular schools, with feedback from students who are there and experiencing the college for themselves. Their reviews can give you an idea of what to expect and help you figure out what you might like/not like about a particular school.
2. You can connect with colleges—right then and there. Finding time to manage your college search is one of the biggest obstacles. With the College Prowler app, you can connect with schools on the go. Are you interested? Yes, Maybe, or No.
3. Organize schools that you’re interested in/not interested in. After you answer the Yes/Maybe/No question about a school, that school is categorized according to one of those three distinctions. If you select “Yes,” College Prowler will attempt to inform the school of your interest. If you select “Maybe,” the school will simply remain in your My Schools list without contact to that particular school. And “No” obviously means “No.”
4. Get reminders about scholarship deadlines. And you can apply from your phone, too.
5. Through Recommended Schools, you can discover schools that might be interested in you. This is especially beneficial if you’re not sure what you are interested in. Sometimes you never know what school might match your interests until someone reaches out your way.
6. Check upcoming events from schools on your Yes and Maybe lists. This includes regular decision application deadlines, notifications, and must-reply-by dates.
We at College Prowler know how complicated the college search can be. That’s why we’re working to simplify the process with this app, which is free and can be downloaded for the Android or iPhone.
