LifeLaunchr’s new, detailed college profiles combine college data with comprehensive answers to commonly asked questions about academics, cost, culture, diversity, and more to help students, parents, and counselors find valuable college research all in one place.
The database of nearly 120,000 data points and questions and answers is integrated into LifeLaunchr’s college profiles. Students, parents, and coaches can find links to college profiles on LifeLaunchr’s college list page and get an example of the kind of information our profiles contain in this profile of the University of California, Berkeley. Students, parents, and counselors can also use LifeLaunchr’s College Match™ to match students to colleges using over 35 parameters, such as academics, majors, cost, location, and culture.
“This new tool will make college research remarkably easier for students and parents,” said Cyndy McDonald, founder of the Higher Education Consultants Association, founder of MyCCA (now GuidedPath), and Principal at McDonald & Associates, a college counseling practice. “College research is a major challenge today. Information is scattered on multiple websites, and each college organizes it differently. The new tool is detailed and comprehensive and will ease the process for students, parents, and counselors.”
“These profiles provide information at a level of depth and breadth that isn’t available anywhere else,” said Tanuj Iyengar of New York, graduating high school senior in the class of 2023 headed to Cornell University this fall. “I’m really excited to see this! These profiles simplify the college research process and will help students craft thoughtful essays that connect their values and goals to those of the universities where they apply.“
“We’re thrilled to bring this new offering to counselors, students, and parents,” said Venkates Swaminathan, founder and CEO of LifeLaunchr. “It will enable college counselors and coaches to be more effective in helping students with college research and help students and parents get answers to questions they struggle with.”
