What are people saying about Collegewise?
I absolutely loved Collegewise! They were extremely helpful, and I felt really good about my application. I would have never known where or how to apply without Collegewise. They made the application process much easier to understand. It was a fantastic decision to go with Collegewise!

I had a wonderful experience with Collegewise! Collegewise made the college application process so much less stressful, and thanks to their help, I know I will be attending the school that’s right for me next year!
Collegewise helped me find the dream school I didn’t even know existed, and then gave me the tools to create my best application possible.
Collegewise helped make my daughter’s college application process smooth and painless. In the end, my daughter was accepted to and will be attending her first choice school, USD. I could not be more thrilled for Alana, and I owe so much to Collegewise for making my daughter’s dream school a reality!

It felt like we sent Blake on a journey in a faraway land, and he got a tour guide who told him what paths to try and which to turn away from. Not having been in this strange land ourselves, as parents, our greatest fear was we would give wrong directions. Great experience, comfortable for Blake from start to finish!

Audrey found the perfect fit for her and received enough scholarship money to make the school affordable for us. We highly recommend Collegewise for busy families like ours.
