Great resources, not great for scholarships

Collegevine is great for narrowing down colleges and selecting ones that match your interests. There is also a really nice chancing simulator that was recently updated to be even more accurate. I would suggest not using collegevine for scholarships, however, as it leaves much to be desired with its database. Still a great site though!

Incredible, accurate data

CollegeVine offers students tons of accurate data about colleges at the click of a button. Definitely recommend!

I love College Vine!

It's free to make an account and so you really have nothing to lose! I've gotten so much help on Collegevine, and I like knowing that the people that respond to my forum questions are more trustworthy and reliable than what I'd find somewhere like Reddit or Quora. They also give free scholarships that you can apply for with Karma (their point system, which I like better than Bold's because it is based on how much you help others on their site), although I haven't won so I couldn't say the likelihood that you'll win one. My favorite part is the peer essay review, though; I actually think that my own writing has become stronger bc of how much I've reviewed other people's essays. And their peer review, again, is more trustworthy than any other place I've found!


I find College Vine helpful because it helps me see where I need to improve in order to increase my chances of being accepted into my dream colleges. Especially for extracurriculars, it give you different levels of how you participated, and thus helps you see how much weight your extracurricular holds.

Great idea!! Very Helpful!!

Having this tool while navigating the application process was so important for me!! I was able to narrow down my choices and make realistic application options for myself.

Somewhat Helpful

This lacks a large database for scholarships but it does do an excellent job matching you with desirable schools.


I like how Collegevine sends me scholarship opportunities, but the many emails is a little frustrating.


It really helps with your chances getting into college and narrows down the choices

Good resource

Collegevine has taught me more about college and the application process. They have helped me find different colleges and my chances of acceptance to each based on my scores and extracurriculars. Collegevine has resources that I have used and will continue to use on my college journey!

Very Helpful!

CollegeVine makes the application and decision making part of college simple and easy. Being able to calculate your chances of getting into different schools shows you which ones are realistic or not. The feature that shows you what you could improve makes bulking up your resume seem less daunting. Overall, this service is incredibly helpful and I would recommend it to anyone looking to apply to colleges.
