Social media enhances college applications.

Students should never be told to avoid social media for college admissions.

For years, counselors have been encouraging their college bound students to clean up, hide, or even delete their social media accounts altogether. This dated advice ignores the obvious. When done right, social media can help students get into the college of their choice. 

Students need to be taught the permanence, discoverability, and vast reach of social media, while also learning how to use social media proactively and productively.  

In the competitive world of college admissions and scholarship opportunities, students need a way to stand out from the crowded pool of qualified applicants. Social media provides the perfect platform for students to tell their story, showcase their accomplishments, and convey their character. 

Our social media courseware and concierge services show students how to build compelling digital portfolios guaranteed to impress college admissions officers and scholarship committees.  

You are more than a test score. Show colleges who you really are.

Character counts.

Whether on social media or IRL.

Since our inception, we’ve preached that “character counts,” and touted social media's power in conveying it. Now Harvard’s "Turning the Tide" report sagely reflects on the dire need for judging character and citizenship, not resumé bullet points, in college admissions. 

Harvard’s report, says Frank Bruni, is “a call for a revolution. It could make a real difference not just because it has widespread backing but also because it nails the way in which society in general — and children in particular — are badly served by the status quo.”

Character and citizenship. That’s exactly what nearly 100 of America’s premier colleges are looking for, in their groundbreaking application process, the Coalition College Application.

Recognizing that college admissions is in desperate need of reinvention, a diverse coalition of schools, including all eight Ivies, has developed a free platform of online tools to modernize the application experience.

The heart of the new application is a student’s digital portfolio – comprised of the same types of media they’ve been using for years on social platforms.

Introducing a social media solution for college advisors.
