If you're looking for a searchable database of colleges and universities that includes basic information about each institution, this app works. However, Peterson's College Guide is a very simple app; there's no way to compare schools' stats side-by-side, or list choices by tuition costs or some other factor important to a particular student's search. What it may do is get your student a lot of marketing information. Users may want to select "only allow schools I save to contact me" to limit marketing.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
