Overview
The Google Sheets™ add-on “College Compare” is a powerful tool for comparing colleges and universities across the United States. With this add-on, you can easily compare factors such as tuition, acceptance rate, graduation rate, student-to-faculty ratio, and more. The add-on also provides a wealth of other information, such as the college’s location, driving miles and time away from your home, campus size, and academic offerings.

How to Use

To start using the "College Compare" add-on, type the name of a school into the sidebar and (optionally) enter your ZIP code. Choose from any college in the United States.

Once you choose a school, College Compare adds it as a new row in the spreadsheet. You can repeat this process to add more schools to your comparison.

The dashboard tab shows each school’s ranking compared to the other schools in your list. See where each school stands compared to the others.

Pricing

College Compare is free for three schools for seven days, then $15 for a lifetime license. No subscription is needed.

This review is to correct a one star review. I left because of an error on my part. This is a 5 star review. This add-on is well worth the $15. If you have a Google account and are logged in you can enter the name of three schools for free just to see how much data automatically populates a newly created Google sheet. For just $15 I can enter any college I want, from any device I want, and compare this statistics. More importantly, because it’s a Google document, my daughter can also view and edit the document as she gathers more information and refines her search.customer service was immediate and direct, and if I hadn’t already figured out and fixed my own mistake, the developer would’ve fixed it, or refunded my money instantly. Of course, there is no need. It works as advertised ESPECIALLY if you don’t have great database building skills (I.e. most of us), having this tool create the spreadsheet for me, and allow me to add to it AT ANY TIME right from the web browser.

As an IEC, this tool is indispensable and allows me to reduce expenses on other types of college consultant software I don't really need that I'd otherwise have to pass on to my students! LOVE IT!

The free trial offers you to add three schools, it only actually does two. Data is incomplete and confusing - There are much better FREE tools out there.

I've been coaching college students with essays for years and I have never had such an easy way to organize the process! Plus the data is always live and a click away
