Our v2 upgrade brings in tens of thousands of Golden Key honor roll student users, shown here as density per state.
We’ve released a major upgrade today of our web platform, termed v2. Finding grad programs or prospective students has never been more simple or powerful.

Our mission is to make it simple and free for students to find their best degree options, while giving programs a cost-effective tool to discover and reach-out to the best prospects in their fields. Our goal is to become the go to resource for students to find graduate programs, and for graduate programs to find students…a world-wide, online gradschool fair that runs around the clock.

The upgrades include:

  • Over 224,000 searchable and matchable student users who use the site for free; the vast majority of whom are honor society members, certified by their University registrar in the top 15% of their class.
  • Searchable/matchable listings of ~38,000 graduate programs
  • A greatly improved user experience
  • Simplified profiles and connect tools
  • A program can have one owner but multiple users, so that teams can recruit students more collaboratively
  • Clean, mobile-responsive interface

We launched Gradschoolmatch v1 in January of 2013.  Since then, we’ve tried to understand from our early adopters how to best create gradschool fair concept online.  We thank all of them for their patience and the insights they’ve shared.
