About this Project:

There are many students who are seeking someone to guide them in applying for college. Many students have not been taught how to get financial aid and how to apply to colleges. This app will provide these students and users college information and financial student aid such as scholarships and advice for high school students looking to be college ready.

Community Feedback:

Great Design
Makes Me Think

Feedback from the Judges:

👏 Product Manager at IBM — Emoti-Con Judge
I appreciate the initiative you have shown in including UX mockups of various screens for your app concept. It's clear that you're tackling an issue that is significant and personal to you.

As you continue to refine your concept, please pay attention to the details in your presentation. For instance, the mix of text colors and background colors in some slides makes it difficult to read. Also, be sure to remove placeholder text in your presentation template to maintain a polished and professional appearance.

To enhance your pitch, consider incorporating components like market research, user research, competitive analysis, and user feedback. These elements can provide a more comprehensive picture of your concept and its potential impact.

Also, think about including a narrated video or an interactive clickable prototype. This could help better flesh out your concept and convincingly demonstrate its value to your audience.

Remember, each piece of feedback is an opportunity for growth and improvement. Keep up the good work, and I look forward to seeing how your concept develops further! Good luck!

Nice concept and could be a helpful tool for those considering college. Combining the college info, events, scholarship applications etc. into one tool would simplify access to this type of info.

As you think through additional the details of your app, who it serves and how it helps, you might think about considering options like a way to add something like a virtual guide to ask questions of users to help understand more about them that can help guide them.

👏 Senior Product Manager at Range — Emoti-Con Judge
Thanks for making this app, I agree ensuring everyone can go to college if they choose is important. It was an interesting concept to read about earning money to pay for school ahead of time. It would have been great to read about research into potential jobs and grants available that students can use. The overall message of the app was very positive and would help folks a lot!

👏 Head of Delivery (Recruitment /Talent Acquisition) at Audeliss (sister company: INvolve - The Inclusion People) — Emoti-Con Judge
I love your concept of helping college seekers better understand the process, keep track of events, and even find scholarships. I wish an app like this was around during my college process!

Your design is very nice with the color scheme and visuals. I would perhaps clean-up the outline a bit to ensure any unnecessary information is removed. Even taking it a step further to create an interactive overview would be fun to see.

Overall, wonderful concept, excellent design, and truly helpful in the world of higher education!
