Getting into College Search Engine
From the creators of the Princeton Review, meet Noodle.org. It’s a personalized recommendation engine in Beta geared towards education. It’s focus is on the best way to help users — from parents and adults to high schoolers — to find the best schools and programs to fit their needs. Think of it as an interactive Princeton Review library of all their published works plus everything collectively in their brains.

What would I use Noodle.org for? It would probably be my first stop to research something like study abroad programs or best art colleges for my oldest. Would I use it to find tutors? Maybe, but I’m more likely to ask a bunch of mom friends for recommendations.
It also would be a good starting place to research colleges since Princeton Review is known for that. Would you use Noodle.org? If so, for what? I’m sure they’d love your feedback!
p.s. You have to register to use the site, but all registrants are also entered to win a $4000 college scholarship.
p.p.s. I have more posts on college here:
Why Volunteering Abroad as a Teen is Crucial
I received a very small stipend but all opinions are my own. I am honestly intrigued to see how this turns out. An educational search engine is up my alley but it must be comprehensive and easy to use. For college visits … ugh, thankfully that is a few years away for us but you can be sure that I’ll research here first.
