“Spending hours filling out applications for seven colleges is a good way to get a hand cramp and a headache, said Colorado St. Mary's Academy senior Claire Godbolt. "I'd be on break at my school and trying to finish applications for college. I would much rather be enjoying my senior year or sleeping. I did not really have a top choice yet, for me all I knew is that I wanted to go out of state.”
CollegeZapps uses a proven technology platform to help ease the pain of the college application process. The online questionnaire efficiently collects required information from prospective college students and then auto-fills applications for one or multiple schools. Now, students can complete college applications faster, more accurately and more professionally.
“Helping students apply to college is what CollegeZapps is all about. Filling out forms, writing essays, taking tests, and meeting deadlines can be pretty overwhelming for someone who is simultaneously dealing with midterms, dating crises, graduation, and teen angst. More high school-age students are applying to college today than in years past. This means that there are more high-achieving high school students applying to the same number of highly selective schools,” said David Kenney, CEO, CollegeZapps.
The April 3, 2007, The Wall Street Journal article titled ‘Colleges Reject Record Numbers’ noted, “This year's college-admissions competition is turning out to be more brutal than ever -- and not just for students who applied to elite universities. A number of top-tier state schools and smaller liberal arts colleges say they received more applications this year from well-qualified students -- and consequently are turning down a higher percentage of them.”
“I work with high school students every day in their college application process. It is a painful and tedious one. A few years ago students would want to apply to two or three colleges. Now, they want to apply to eight or 10. While the applications are available for download from the Internet, students have to print them then fill them in by hand or by typewriter. This process is time consuming and leads to many errors. With CollegeZapps, completing college applications is so easy. Students can now spend more time choosing what colleges best fit them, applying to more colleges in less time, and reducing the redundancy that comes with filling out multiple application forms,” said Joe Eberle, independent education consultant and publisher of The College Gazette.
The May 11, 2007 USA Today article entitled “College Applications Take Off” said, “Every college admissions cycle has its own set of dynamics, and this year is no exception. Many selective private colleges are reporting a boom in applications and, as a result, expect to admit a lower proportion of high school seniors than last year.”
CollegeZapps is powered by Efficient Forms, LLC who specializes in business form and data collection automation software. This is a proven technology platform that directs an online interview to efficiently collect required information from prospective college applicants. The information is then used to expedite completion of all the college applications the students wish to submit.
“So often I think how much times have changed and the roadblocks students face just to apply to college. From ease of use to highly personalized applications, our proven, powerful technology helps students apply to college. The students are our highest priority,” continued Kenney.
