Introducing the New LifeLaunchr!

by | Apr 10, 2016

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. The new service will enable parents and students to get expert coaching with every aspect of college planning at an affordable price. And in many cases for free.

This new service features courses by experts on college admissions. It also allows parents and students to engage coaches directly through the platform, and introduces community ratings and reviews to the world of college admissions advice. From college selection, to essay writing, to financial aid and scholarships you will find courses and coaches to meet your needs.

Our tools still enable students to create beautiful professional profiles they can use to work with coaches and mentors. They also allow students and parents to take virtual tours of colleges, get reminders of college application deadlines and other immensely useful features to support you through the complexities of college admissions.

So come on in and check it out! Here is a brief video that explains the new LifeLaunchr!

We invite you to come take a look!
