Upgrades, Survey Results, IECA Conference, and Deactivating Accounts

We are so excited to dive into the new admissions season with independent consultants and wanted to highlight a few key things now that spring is here.

Upgrades Independent Consultants Asked For (and More)

Within the next few weeks, before the new admissions season officially starts, we'll unveil the following features, which include dozens of new elements:

- Customize your RoadMap so that you can control exactly how each client's information is presented.

- Enjoy a more intuitive user experience with our enhanced layout and recently updated algorithm.

- Get down with our completely re-designed website, which will be more modern and student-friendly.

Your Common App Survey Results

Here are the results of our survey regarding whether the Common App's new personal statement still allows students to write on any topic they wish:

71% = Yes, either because of the first prompt or all the prompts collectively

11% = Most likely

10% = Not sure

8% = No

These results are consistent with College Essay Organizer's position that the new essay prompts indeed allow students to write on a topic of their choice. If you have any question about this, please don't hesitate to contact us, as we are happy to explain the reasoning here.

Last Season's Student Accounts Will Be Deactivated Today

This is our reminder that all student accounts from last season will be deactivated today (whether accessed through CollegePlannerPro, MyCCA, or our site directly). Contact us if you need any info from a deactivated account. You can begin creating new accounts for this coming season immediately.

IECA Conference 

We hope to see you at the IECA Conference in Chicago this week, and invite you to visit our table and say hello. We will be answering all questions and providing private demonstrations as requested. Plus, one lucky member who stops by will win five FREE student accounts for this coming season!  

Thanks and hope to see or talk to all of you soon!
