5 Great Apps to Help You Navigate the College Admissions Process

One of the best times in any person’s life is when they make the decision to go to college. Of course, before they can start their first day as a student at the institution of their choice, the first thing they have to do is apply. And based on the school that they want to go to, sometimes the college admissions process can be pretty detailed.

Thanks to technology, there are some apps that you can download that can help to make everything at lot easier, though. So, if you are in the process of preparing to apply to a few colleges, we have enclosed five great apps to help you navigate through the process below:

Petersen’s College Guide. Before you can apply to some schools, you have to think about which ones you would like to attend. For this, the Petersen’s College Guide comes in quite handy because not only does it provide you with a map to virtually every college but it also helps to match you up with ones that are a good fit when it comes to your academic qualifications as well as your financial status.

College Entrance MobileHUB. No matter what college or university that you decide to go to, something that you’re going to need to have is a good ACT and/or SAT score. With the help of the College Entrance MobileHUB, you can prepare for both ACT and SAT tests, get diagnostic feedback and receive other pertinent information as it relates to placement exam information.

Google Docs. All college applications have an essay portion and it’s important that it’s written with absolutely no errors. Something that can help you to avoid misspelled words and grammatical errors is to use the Google Doc apps. You can even share your document with others if you would like to get a second or third opinion on what you’ve written.

Monster.com Interviews by Monster Worldwide. If you’ve always dreamed of going to college in order to get your masters of social work but you’re admittedly a bit shy, when it comes to the college admissions process, something that you might be a bit hesitant about is the one-on-one interviews that some schools require. But you can actually sharpen your interview skills by using the Monster.com Interviews by Monster Worldwide. It’s an app that coaches you through interviews and even offers tips on how to follow-up after your interview has taken place.

Rescue Time. One of the best things that you can learn before going to college is self-discipline. And being that there are so many different distractions, especially online, it’s a good idea to have an app that will help to keep you focused. One app that can assist you in doing that is Rescue Time. It’s an app that actually shows you how much time you spend on your daily activities. That way, when you’re writing your essays, putting together your letters of recommendation, getting your transcripts and prepping for your interviews, you’ll be able to see how much time you need to get your college applications just right. Good luck!
