Do you have a list of colleges that you need to narrow down, but you’re not quite sure about the best way to go about it? In this session, the creators of CollegeMatchmaking.org, current LASA seniors, will share how to use the app to find the right reach, target, and safety schools for you. The website gives you a research framework and data driven tools to guide your college research, calculating three separate match scores to help you decide which schools to apply to. The match scores are initially generated by drawing from 200 data points about 3000+ colleges. As you make decisions about what’s important to you and conduct research using the College Matchmaking framework, the scores become increasingly personalized, reflecting your interests and pointing you towards your college love match.
