The central idea behind RaiseMe is that students earn micro-scholarships through various achievements and actions which might include anything from taking an AP course to visiting a college campus.  Students can join as early as 9th grade and watch their tally of micro-scholarships add up.

“April is the cruellest month…”

April 29, 2013

In T.S. Eliot’s poem The Wasteland, he notes that “April is the cruellest month.”  For the world of college admission there’s more than a little truth to that.  After we mail our admission decisions in late March and enjoy some much needed time off (I’m talking a weekend, not a week,) it seems three days […]
