History[edit]

College Confidential was founded to "demystify many aspects of the college admissions process, and to help even 'first timer' students and parents understand the process." An editorial team, consisting of Dave Berry, a senior admissions officer, David Hawsey, and Roger Dooley, a parent who is active in high school academics, supply visitors with college admission content.[1]

It features a very active 'What Are My Chances?' subforum, where users are evaluated on their chances of acceptance to specific colleges based on their test scores, GPA, and extracurricular activities. There are also various other subforums regarding financial aid, SAT, ACT and AP test preparation, forums for all major colleges and universities, including those in the Ivy League, as well as for the nation's top research universities and liberal arts colleges.
