Making smart choices simple.


The internet is filled with garbage. Yet where do we go when we need answers?

We’re tired of all the garbage, and decided to do something about it. So, we’re sifting through it all to find the buried treasure. We’re talking to experts. We’re analyzing mountains of data. We’re doing whatever it takes to create content that helps you live better. 

And to make this possible, we’re committed to finding a business model that doesn’t corrupt the integrity of our content. 

Making smart choices simple.


Why? Because becoming a student is one of the first complex decisions you’ll make starting out — deciding where to go, how to pay for it, how to get top grades, and of course, how to land a job after college. Also, being located across the street from one of the top universities in the world, it’s the demographic we’re closest to, and know best.

So, what are we doing to help?

We’re helping students in their pre-college journey by ranking colleges and programs across the country using aggregated publicly available data.

We’re building guides to help students succeed in the classroom by bringing together the latest research with tips and techniques championed by today’s leading experts.

We’re arming you with resources to successfully transition from college to the workforce by building databases of internship opportunities and compiling example resumes.

All of this, and we’re just getting started.

Our View on Self-Improvement

At, we’re awed by the advancements made in information transmission. We also understand that the continuous self-improvement is a human art as well as a science. Every story is valid, every experience unique. We’re most interested in the experience of those seeking self-improvement. We believe that everyone should question everything, including their mentors, teachers, government but also seek the best possible relationship with those very same people.

Information is a critical tool for self-improvement. It’s also important when navigating an environment that is oftentimes complicated and vague. We recognize the importance of different approaches to self-improvement, and we strive to provide perspective on every approach where relevant.
