End the 6 Year Plan!

Great article in the New York Times for MyEdu! The goal of founder Michael Crosno is to help students stay on track in college.  Having two college age students, I whole-heartedly agree.  College advising is horrible and this means students have to take charge of their college career. 

MyEdu is designed to help. tMyEdu now includes 775 colleges and universities, up from about 60 when Mr. Crosno joined. In the first five months of this year, he said, the site logged about 2.5 million users.
MyEdu also lets students compare textbook costs. Part of the money from sales made through the site comes back to the company, one revenue stream alongside contextual advertising and sponsored content. Mr. Crosno said early efforts to charge for MyEdu services fell flat.

It is a free site with professor rating, degree management and text book cost comparison. It also has a way to balance your courseload, calculate your GPA and track your credits.
 
If you are one of the many students without unlimited funds, you need tools to help you succeed - this on is free and can help!
