College Board launches new admissions site

March 28, 2012

The College Board, the company behind the SAT and advanced placement exams, has introduced a website that centres on the qualitative elements of the college-search process. "Big Future" features a college-search function, information about majors and scholarships, and an "action plan" that guides users through the various phases of the admissions process. Visitors to the site can watch more than 100 short videos in which PSE students and admissions experts share their thoughts on a variety of topics, such as financial aid, campus visits, and student mobility.
