Our mission

Every day people read stories about how the acceptance rate at Harvard dropped again or how the number of applications to Yale increased by double digits percentage points this year compared to the last.

On the other hand, we learn about people who borrow hundreds of thousands of dollars and fail to meet their needs.
After being bombarded with such negative news about higher education, it is hard to believe that there is a point in applying to a college.

But we believe there is another approach.

We, the team behind College Reality Check, firmly believe that there are many ways to build a successful career, and education should not cost people an arm and a leg.

There are more than 4000 colleges and universities in the US. The media is obsessed with Ivy League and other selective colleges, but these elite institutions only account for less than one percent of other great colleges.

Our team’s mission is to educate about other options, such as state universities, community colleges, online schools, and so on, and help our readers navigate the world of higher ed.

We would love to hear from you! We appreciate your feedback, too.
