Two new College Raptor updates this week:
First, the folks over at Dwolla say they have a crush on our company! Their kind words haven’t gone unnoticed. We appreciate the support!
Secondly, the Iowa City Press Citizen wrote a story about our mission of clarifying college data to help students make more informed decisions. The article quoted Michael Barron, retired assistant provost for enrollment and executive director of admissions at the University of Iowa and Dr. Richard Ferguson, the former CEO and Chairman of ACT.
