What is Universily?
Universily is a college application platform that provides students and their families with structure and guides them through the application process.
First, students fill out all their involvements from high school into their Universily "My Story". This includes the classes they took, activities, honors, and test scores. Students are prompted to provide details that will be relevant for applications such as the number of hours per week and weeks per year they were involved. Next, students organize the elements of their My Story into a cohesive narrative they will tell colleges through their essays.
Second, Universily facilitates easy collaboration between a student, their parents or family members, and any counselors the student might work with, either private or through their school. Students invite their family and counselors to create an account and join their My Team. Members of a student's My Team can view and comment on the status of a student's applications or any of the specific elements. Most impactfully, students are able to write their essays within Universily where their My Team can provide feedback and collaborate within the system, eliminating the need for long email chains and back and forth essay drafts.
Third, Universily consolidates all the specific requirements and deadlines for each college where a student is planning to apply. Students and their My Team can holistically view all the applications they are working on, the status of each requirement such as essays, recommendation letters, and transcript, and track deadlines to make sure they are on top of their applications.
