Applying to college can be stressful. There are a lot of elements that require careful attention, and a lot of tasks on that ever-growing application to-do list. Organization is essential—but we know it’s not always easy.

Keeping track of all the moving parts within an application and deadlines for each college is a common challenge students face. And it’s that very challenge that sparked the creation of Wise(r)net, Collegewise’s proprietary college admissions software. But this platform does more than cure unnecessary application stress. Read on to learn how using a platform (like Wisernet) will benefit your student—and make the college admissions experience a whole lot better!

Trying to keep all your student’s high school and important “college stuff” in one place, but it’s getting a little complicated? Think of Wise(r)net as your virtual filing cabinet where there’s a place for everything from individual applications and essays to personal stats like test scores, grades and course plans.
