College Essay Organizer and ConnectEDU Announce Innovative Partnership

College Essay Organizer is Integrated into ConnectEDU to Help Guide Students and Counselors through College Admissions Process

NEW YORK, June 24, 2010 – College Essay Organizer (‘CEO’), the web-based college essay management tool, announced today that it has joined forces with leading online educational platform ConnectEDU, further streamlining the college admissions process for students, parents, and counselors.

CEO’s groundbreaking technology instantly provides each student with all essay questions for any selected colleges and delivers a personalized plan for writing the fewest essays that work for all questions. The results are less time, less stress, and more attention to the actual writing process resulting in better essays.
“For applicants looking to stand out, personal essays are of the utmost importance,” says Daniel Stern, President of College Essay Organizer. With long, short, department-specific, scholarship, and optional questions, many students are surprised to learn they have 15 or more essays to write, and they don’t know where or how to begin. Even if students use the Common App, they typically have to write many different supplemental essays for their colleges. “If a student can see how to write, say, only 3 essays instead of 15, that student is going to write more compelling essays. We developed CEO so students and those who support them could optimize their time, and the results have been sensational.”

With a network of 2 million users, ConnectEDU develops innovative technology to enable students to successfully manage their educational and career plans. Its data-driven solution helps to bridge the transitions between high school, college, and career, by making certain that students take the necessary steps at the right time to reach their goals.

“We are excited to partner with CEO and to have the opportunity to offer this valuable tool to our students,” says Craig Powell, Chief Executive Officer of ConnectEDU. “This partnership furthers our goal of helping more students successfully transition from high school to college.”

CEO looks forward to extending its unique technology to ConnectEDU’s existing platform. The partnership of these pioneering educational organizations will make the college application process as efficient and successful as possible.
