Our College Finder Tool
At myKlovr, we understand that for a high school student and a working parent it can be difficult to figure out which college is best for a child and for their family. That is why we have created an intelligent college finder that holistically matches colleges and students based on academic, financial, campus lifestyle preferences and other criteria. Our college finder is specifically designed to simplify selecting the right school for every high school student. Parents will also benefit from using this tool to narrow down the perfect university for their child. Whether you want to know which colleges accept specific SAT or ACT scores, or if you are interested in seeing which universities offer particular activities, we have you covered. Our goal is to make getting into college a fun and easy experience, and this tool is one of the first steps in doing so.
Below are examples of what our tool has to offer.
Being involved in various campus activities is one way to add value to a student’s overall college experience. Our college finder has a feature that can help students and parents find which schools offer activities such as club sports, student government, or whether a university has a radio or tv station.
After a full day of studying and enjoying what campus life has to offer, you are going to need a home base to recharge for the next day. On-campus, Sorority and Fraternity, International, single gender, and even Disabled-student housing are all searchable options with our tool.
Paying for College
In the world where the cost of higher education has been growing fast, we wish that affordability should not stop talented students from maximizing their potential. Is there a limit to how much your family is ready to pay for college? Curious about the percent of financial aid that colleges provide? Look no further – myKlovr’s college finder tool will show you which schools meet your tuition conditions.
Good academic fit is critical for you to achieve your higher education goals and to challenge yourself while enjoying what you are doing. MyKlovr’s college finder will help you find schools that match your academic profile and build an application strategy that includes reach, match and safety colleges.
Let’s say you are just beginning your search for the right college for you. At this stage, you may only know you are interested in attending a 4-year institution in a particular state. Whether your search is highly specific or general, our college finder tool will assist you in finding a school that meets your criteria.
Starting your college search
Deciding which colleges to apply to can feel intimidating, but it doesn’t have to be! Take an interview in the myKlovr’s college finder to simplify your search. By answering a few questions about what kind of college you’re interested in attending, your academic record in high school, your interests and preferences, you can easily narrow down a list of your top colleges. Just like people, each college has a “personality,” and you have the best odds of being admitted to and enjoying your time at a school that closely matches your own.
Which academic programs are you interested in?
Some of you may already have an academic program picked out and others may still be undecided. Both are fine! If you’re undecided, a school with a broad liberal arts curriculum would be a great fit since it will have lots of options for you to choose from. Some colleges and universities have a very specific curriculum focus, like fine arts colleges and vocational schools, which only cater to students with specific academic programs in mind.
What kind of college do you want to attend?
Colleges come in all shapes and sizes. Large public colleges can feel like small cities housing 50,000 or more students. On the other hand, liberal arts colleges have smaller student bodies of just a few thousand and feel quieter and more intimate than their Big Ten counterparts. Some colleges, like Christian colleges, also have a religious focus which shapes the lifestyle of its students, the overall campus culture and sometimes the courses of study as well.
College vs. University?
This can be confusing since the two words are used interchangeably, but they mean somewhat different things. A college is typically a four-year school that offers bachelor’s degrees but no graduate programs. Universities provide four-year bachelor’s degrees as well as graduate degrees. Students can even start at a two-year college and then transfer to a four-year school, whether a smaller college or a university, to complete their bachelor’s degrees.
What is the admissions process like?
While many schools share a similar admissions process, the criteria they use to admit or deny students may be unique. As you’re narrowing down your list of colleges, look at the admissions requirements of each school. Some colleges have reputations for being more particular than others about GPAs and entrance exam scores. Other schools may be more flexible about grades, but may be interested in seeing a record of community service or participation in clubs, sports, or other extracurricular activities during high school.
Getting into college has never been so easy, fun, and affordable! Start early. Finding the right colleges that fit your needs is one of the many important steps of the college application process. Our comprehensive college finder makes it easy for you to get started.
