Let's face it: we have terrible memories as humans. Remembering what we did yesterday can be tough for some of us, and it eventually reaches us all.
It's also hard to keep up with the often complicated process of applying to colleges, especially for first generation college students. Without the assistance of those who have been through the process before, they may become frustrated and defeated by the applications, essays, resumes, and general bureaucracy of the system(s).
Enter the Coalition for Access, Affordability, and Success. The Coalition "was developed to improve the college application process for all students as they search for and apply to their perfect college. The platform provides a single, centralized toolkit for students to organize, build, and refine their applications to numerous institutions." (emphasis added)
Accepted by over 90 institutions across the U.S., the Coalition application provides a better alternative to the Common App and school-specific applications for these schools as it allows students to use its Locker system to store past achievements and highlight their creative talents in writing, design, etc. and transfer those achievements and highlights over to their Coalition application. They can also share those highlights with mentors or college admissions offices to supplement their applications if not included in the first place, all through a pretty user-friendly portal.
Though there are other programs that do similar things for students, like CollegeforTN's profile system, this application is easily transferable to the application for the schools that support it, saving time and headache for students.

Just another resource to share! Hopefully it helps some of your students, especially juniors with high aspirations!
Thanks again, and until next time,
