What exactly happens when you demonstrate interest (network) through CollegeVine?

The button just says connect, but what actually gets sent to them?

Hey! We're glad you're trying out the network! In a year of disruptions from COVID, we're trying to find better ways to connect students and universities. By joining the network, you can connect with and demonstrate interest to various colleges.

Once you connect, you'll see a different experience depending on the configuration of the school. For example, some schools will automatically assign an admissions officer to you that you can chat with, others have structured journeys you can go through, etc.

At the minimum, we let the school know you connected with them on CollegeVine as a means of demonstrating interest (we share your basic information and a link to your network profile). Note that not all schools consider demonstrated interest in their admissions decisions so the impact can vary per school. Hope this helps!
