Applying to College Can Be a High-Stress Experience

December 20, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Education News
Applying to college is nothing if not a high-stress experience. High school seniors across the country are staying up until the wee hours of the morning to fill out applications and write essays for numerous colleges and universities and simultaneously struggling to maintain their grades. To ease this stress, CollegeZapps, LLC ( today announced the addition of over 154 colleges and universities to the CollegeZapps web site.

“Spending hours filling out applications for seven colleges is a good way to get a hand cramp and a headache, said Colorado St. Mary's Academy senior Claire Godbolt. "I'd be on break at my school and trying to finish applications for college. I would much rather be enjoying my senior year or sleeping. I did not really have a top choice yet, for me all I knew is that I wanted to go out of state.”

“Helping students apply to college is what CollegeZapps is all about. Filling out forms, writing essays, taking tests, and meeting deadlines can be pretty overwhelming for someone who is simultaneously dealing with midterms, dating crises, graduation, and teen angst. More high school-age students are applying to college today than in years past. This means that there are more high-achieving high school students applying to the same number of highly selective schools,” said David Kenney, CEO, CollegeZapps.

The April 3, 2007, The Wall Street Journal article titled ‘Colleges Reject Record Numbers’ noted, “This year's college-admissions competition is turning out to be more brutal than ever — and not just for students who applied to elite universities. A number of top-tier state schools and smaller liberal arts colleges say they received more applications this year from well-qualified students — and consequently are turning down a higher percentage of them.”

CollegeZapps is powered by Efficient Forms, LLC who specializes in business form and data collection automation software.
