Pointer Makes College Search and Application Process Fun and Accessible

A free counselor in your pocket

The notorious COVID-19 pandemic has moved the majority of high schools to virtual learning. It has become quite difficult for students to reach their college counselors, who already have an average caseload of 500 students per counselor. Pointer, a free mobile app targeted at high-school students applying to college, has been launched to sail students across.

“It’s essential a Counselor in your pocket,” said Jennie Taylor Tucker, Founder and CEO of Get On Pointer, Inc

Pointer is a student’s personal, mobile, and smart college advocate. Like a sophisticated dating app, Pointer generates a list of colleges best suited to a student on a profoundly personal, social, and academic level.

The app is designed to dive deeply into who a student is, what their experiences are, their personality, skills, and desires to identify college communities where a student can thrive academically and socially, and ultimately be encouraged to be their best self.

As a resource and guide, Pointer gives every student thinking about college a platform to be seen, heard, and supported throughout the complicated search and application process. It makes a daunting experience accessible and engaging.

Once Pointer generates the best-fitting colleges for that particular student, it then carries the student throughout the entire college application process with its robust Action Calendar and motivating alerts to keep their dream of higher education within reach.

Pointer looks at who you are as a person and a student: your background, the environments you feel comfortable in, your ability and willingness to take risks, your academic standing, your interests, and personality. With that information, we identify colleges that we think will support you in being the best version of yourself.

Pointer doesn’t guarantee college admission, but it suggests one should definitely double-check all application and scholarship due dates as colleges tend to change deadlines and requirements from year to year. 



The Educational landscape is changing dynamically. The new generation of students thus faces the daunting task to choose an institution that would guide them towards a lucrative career.
