Launched in August 2013 by students at the University of Pennsylvania, AdmitSee is a social media platform where thousands of verified undergrad and grad students share their application materials, including personal statements, test scores, extracurricular resumes, and high school background. The information is uploaded to profiles, so it’s fun and easy for prospective students to navigate.
Their mission is to bring transparency to college admissions offices. They’re collecting data on how different factors impact admissions chances. They want to empower users to make better choices about which schools they apply to and inspire them to customize their application essays for each school. Say for instance, you have to write a GPA Addendum to explain semester of really bad grades – you can find Admits who went through the same thing, and see which schools were more forgiving.
