So, we’re one month in to the new year, and we decided it was time to talk about some of the latest and greatest goings-on here at WiseChoice. In the past few months, we’ve made several changes and additions to the site that we want to share with you.
For starters, we launched the WiseChoice for Professionals Educator Resource Center, where teachers, guidance counselors, independent educational consultants and other professionals can go to access a variety of free resources on a number of different topics. Download helpful college planning and financial aid handouts, review programs featured in the Scholarship Spotlight and check out the highlighted College of the Day and Career Corner listings.

As you well know—or are about to find out—trying to figure out which colleges suit your personality and academic and extra-curricular interests is not easy. With thousands of colleges and universities to choose from and only enough time to visit a handful or two, it can be a little like searching for a ring in the sand on the beach in the pitch dark.
We really want to help you find that “ring,” so here’s our shameless plug. . .
WiseChoice can definitely make it easier. Think of us as the eHarmony® of the college search process. We don’t just give you a list of colleges with relevant stats, we also give you reviews and ratings from over 110,000 current college students to help you make a more informed choice about where to apply.

That’s how I felt the other day when one of my friends called to say she’d seen this article on WiseChoice! There’s nothing like a public shout out for your team!
“Are you going to the game?” “Does this look good?” “What did you think of that test?”
Have you ever stopped to think how often you ask your friends for their opinions? I ask my friends for their insight all of the time, from do they think Serena and Nate will get together, to suggestions on how I should tell my mom something. I value the advice of my friends (and even my parents) because not only do they get me, but chances are they’ve encountered a similar experience themselves and can share what they’ve learned.

Let’s face it; applying to college can be tedious, boring and one giant labyrinth of tests and paperwork. Toiling over college websites, school essays and writing the pros vs. cons of each institution can feel like a lonely place. It seems that there is nowhere to go to find the answers to all of your burning, college-related questions and no community to fall back on when deciding on these next big steps in your life.
Of course, all of that nonsense was way back when and now you have WiseChoice. And aren’t you lucky. WiseChoice—along with the WiseChoice blog—is the preeminent one- stop shop for finding the information you need, brought to you by individuals who have been there, done that and want you to find your perfect match when it comes to post-secondary education.
Here at WiseChoice, we want you to enjoy the college-finding experience whether you want to stay at home or move 3,000 miles away and whether you want to major in Kinesiology or Political Science. Either way we want to get you there intact. With guidance on financial aid and the differences between universities in Washington State and Washington, DC, we are here to provide you with the ultimate experience in planning this next step of your future.
So sit back and relax. Welcome to the WiseChoice blog.
