College admission requirements are getting tougher every year, as more and more qualified students look for acceptance at top universities around the country. Acceptly is a web-application that guides its users through the process of applying for college in ways that a guidance counselor couldn’t dream of. The application provides customized recommendations that can increase anyone’s chances of getting accepted at the school of their choice.
If you’re a high school student who’s anxious about the college admissions process, then you’re a person who could benefit from checking out Acceptly. Log in with a Facebook account, then enter your high school and graduation year to begin. Acceptly will ask you questions about the colleges you’re considering, and based on your responses the system will come up with specific challenges that you must accomplish if you want to get in. Challenges are broken down into categories, like Academics, Testing, Application, and Financial Aid, and include things like “Participate in community service” or “Sign up for the ACT.” When you’re ready to get to work, click on the challenge title and follow Acceptly’s step-by-step instructions. Acceptly is also the place where you’ll want to store all your testing scores, grades, and community service information to refer back to when it comes time to actually start applying at your favorite schools.
Another component to the Acceptly application has to do with points and badges, which users can earn by completing certain challenges. Acceptly also has a helpful “Question” section, where students can input questions and receive responses from qualified college prep experts within just 24 hours. For a free application, Acceptly is both useful and fun.
