Visiting colleges can be expensive. Between airfare or gas, hotel rooms, rental cars, parking and food, you could end up spending thousands of dollars. So before you fly, travel in the virtual world. College virtual tours can be a great way to screen colleges and find your fit.
LifeLaunchr was chosen as one among a select group of companies for the Advisor Track at Y Combinator’s Startup School.
We're excited to be supporting the great work school counselors do by sponsoring The Counseling Geek's scholarships for school counselors to attend the ASCA conference, and offer a special discount to students.
We're really excited to introduce the new LifeLaunchr as the world's first virtual coaching platform for college planning!
We created LifeLaunchr over a year ago as a tool for students to use to tell their stories in a unique way for college admissions, career, and internships. In the year since we launched, over 35,000 students and 300 counselors and mentors have signed up to use the service. But as we added great features for counselors and parents, introduced paid coaching services and other new tools we realized the user experience was no longer as predictable and delightful as it needed to be.
So, after some hard thought, we decided to rebuild the entire platform – from the ground up. And we're thrilled with the results.
