From dream universities to safety universities, Bookmarks is the place for students to organize their Longlist, Shortlist, and Applying lists, and have meaningful conversations with family and counselors to start planning their university application journey.
Previously housed under Applications, students can now experience list-building exclusively on this page, located on the main navigation pane on the left.
How to add a university to a list
Begin by browsing and searching on the Universities page
If you are just starting out and have no bookmarks yet, students will see this message. Click on the blue button to begin your journey.
Because this is your first time, you'll be brought to the Universities page for an immersive experience about the university search journey. Follow this article here to learn the ins and outs of the Universities page. Once you've added one or more universities to any of your lists, proceed to the next section.
Now that you've added your lists - let's break it down further on what you can do:
You can drag and drop universities between lists once you've decided to move them up, down or sideways between the different lists.
How to prioritize the universities on your lists
Prioritize the schools - Drag universities within the same list to know the priority that the university stands in that particular list. Drag the universities to move between different lists.
Moving your application - Instead of dragging the application, you can also click on 3 dots on the application to move it to your desired list and delete the application if needed.
Adding a University - Want to quickly add a university to a list? Use the "+ Add University" button and type the name of the university you'd like to add!
Likelihood - A small dot will help you predict the likelihood of a possible acceptance into a university.
Filters - Firstly, you can filter out your applications country-wise. Secondly, the applications can be filtered based on how likely a college/ university might accept your application.
