How useful is Naviance in college search?

Hey guys, my school introduced Naviance to us this year. I'm curious to know about its effectiveness in helping find colleges that suit my preferences. Any thoughts or experiences?

Hey there! Naviance can be quite useful in your college search process as it provides a platform to research schools, analyze college acceptance trends, and understand your chances based on your school’s historical data. Naviance's "scattergrams" can be particularly insightful as they show the GPA and test scores of students from your high school who applied to specific colleges in past years, allowing you to compare yourself to previous applicants from your school.

Keep in mind, however, admissions processes can change over time and relying solely on Naviance isn't advised. I recommend using additional resources like CollegeVine, which offers a chancing engine, a school list builder, and essay guidance, among other things, to get a well-rounded understanding of your college options. It's always a good idea to use multiple resources to cross-reference information and gain a more comprehensive view. Good luck with your college search!
