Jump-Start Your College Search Spreadsheet
Planning on using a spreadsheet to track your college search? Why not save yourself time and have it loaded with the data you’re going to be copying from college search sites anyway?
For $42, instead of copying information on SAT scores, admission rates, size, graduation rates, and so on for each college as you decide to include it in your search, you could already have the information entered and be focusing on adding the unique characteristics as you find them.
Having the data already entered means that you can use it to actually search for colleges, not jut track colleges you have already found. Instead of entering graduation rates, admission rates, average cost of attendance, or 75th percentile test scores you could be searching on them.
“I think it is fantastic. I am not an expert in excel by any means but I find the spreadsheet extremely easy to use. I was able to use the search tab to filter my choices which I then copied to a new sheet where I added in any schools my daughter is interested in that didn’t make the cut…Her list of 30 “awesome” schools is down to 10 truly outstanding choices that on paper are everything we are looking for. Schools we thought were great ended up getting crossed off because of factors we didn’t think of before. Thanks to the spreadsheet, those factors became evident especially as we compared them to other schools. We did all this in just under an hour.”

You can have a spreadsheet with this data already entered, formatted as tables, and a tab for a pivot table for only $42. That’s what it costs to just take the SAT.
For the cost of a single college application, you could be using your spreadsheet to narrow your college search rather than looking up the data from websites to enter.
For $42, you get a 2007 Excel spreadsheet with over 1,500 public and non-profit colleges and 200 variables and a 60 day money back guarantee–no questions asked.
This data is extracted from the Integrated Post-Secondary Education Data System which is basis for the College Navigator website and includes the following:
