New Upgrades for College Essay Organizer!

College Essay Organizer is pleased to reveal a number of key upgrades that have been made for the 2011/2012 season that are already in effect! Let's get to it:

  • Select up to 20 colleges for each client: One of our most frequent requests has now been answered! Each College Essay Organizer account can now select up to 20 colleges instead of the previous limit of 15.
  • Remove essay questions that are not relevant to a client: The Essay RoadMap is now fully modifiable! If you want to remove a question from the list because it doesn't pertain to you or the program you'll be applying to, you can simply click to remove it from the list. Any hidden questions can be un-hidden just as easily.
  • New easy-to-read Essay RoadMap layout: Essay RoadMap is now re-oriented around the questions you're most likely going to have to write, and also includes all the biographical data for each school you'll be applying to, putting all the info you'll need on one easy-to-read page.
  • Upload, edit, and track the status of essay drafts within each account instead of emailing back and forth: College Essay Organizer is now a platform for sharing essays with your advisor, be it a guidance counselor or an independent consultant. You can upload, edit, and make notes on any essay draft from within the Essay RoadMap. You can even mark off which essays have been completed, making your Essay RoadMap also function as a task list for your essay process.
  • Attend our weekly webinars on topics related to the essay process: College Essay Organizer is reaching out in new ways to help as many students, guidance counselors, independent consultants, and parents learn about how to handle the college application process to the best of their abilities. Our weekly webinars will put you in touch with the College Essay Organizer staff and allow your questions to be answered directly, in real time.

These new upgrades have combined to make College Essay Organizer better than it's ever been before. We're always striving to improve, so if you have suggestions on what we can do to improve our work, don't hesitate to let us know!
