Military Education: save time and money!

For any potential college students in the military or for veterans, take a look at MyEdu.  There is a great New York Times article on the company "Crusading From Outside to Lower College Costs"

From the article
"The company’s revamped site still allows for professor ratings, but students can also customize a degree plan that matches their desired workload in each semester and, if they choose, can help them devise the quickest path to graduation. The company, which was recently featured in a United States Chamber of Commerce report on the future of higher education, claims that 70 percent of users graduate on time, nearly double the national average.


MyEdu now includes 775 colleges and universities, up from about 60 when Mr. Crosno joined. In the first five months of this year, he said, the site logged about 2.5 million users.

MyEdu also lets students compare textbook costs. Part of the money from sales made through the site comes back to the company, one revenue stream alongside contextual advertising and sponsored content. Mr. Crosno said early efforts to charge for MyEdu services fell flat."

It is a free site with professor rating, degree management and text book cost comparison.  It also has a way to balance your courseload, calculate your GPA and track your credits.

Your goal is to earn a degree - and anyone in school knows that college advising is generally lacking - so this site can help and if they have a graduation rate of 70%, that really is something!
