How to Navigate the College Search
By Kathryn Knight Randolph
College search has been simplified
The college search. It’s daunting, exciting and sometimes, you just don’t want to deal with it. But when you get to be a sophomore or junior in college, and especially when you’re a senior, it’s a must you need to contend with.
Fortunately, the college search is easier than ever. And Fastweb is the big reason why.
Back in the day, the college search required you to scour a bunch of different school websites, combing through different pages on financial aid, scholarships and admissions requirements. Then after applying, your focus would switch to the scholarship search, and that’s where we came in.
Well, this year, we’re making our entrance a lot sooner, and in turn, making your college and scholarship search a lot more seamless. Now, you don’t have to go to a bunch of different school websites. You can find every school you need in the Fastweb college database. You’ll also find financial aid, scholarships and much more for each school.
If you really love a school and want to tuck it away as a place to check out in person, you can just add it to your My Colleges, a list that is stored on Fastweb that helps you better organize your college search. And guess what happens when you add a college to that list? You’re automatically matched to the scholarships from that school that you actually qualify for. How’s that for seamless?
In addition to saving a list of colleges you love, you can leave reviews and read reviews from other Fastwebbers about schools they’ve visited, currently attend or have attended.
Essentially, Fastweb’s new tools ensure that you’re completing your college search efficiently and effectively; all the while capitalizing on a scholarship database of over 1.3 million opportunities to help fund your higher education . No other online resource can provide you with the simplicity of our new College Search and scholarship database, and that’s why the best just got better. So what are you waiting for?
