I applied to college in 2001. Back then my friends thought I was crazy for doing all of my applications online. I thought they were crazy for trusting the USPS with something that important. I don’t even know if you can still apply to college on dead trees, but apparently most admissions offices haven’t embraced technology as much as they should. Matchbox is a Boston, MA based startup that took inspiration from the iPad and built a platform to make the selection process much better. This has little to do with how people apply to college, and everything to do with how admissions offices make decisions. Organization is essential, and it’s a heck of a lot easier to stay organized when every piece of information you need is on an iPad and you have software that allows you to interact with that information in a user-friendly way.
I have an iPad. There are some good things it’s good for (consuming content), and there are some things it’s not so good for (producing content). Where the device really shines is somewhere in-between. That’s right where Matchbox sits–the admissions process is all about interacting with the content applicants create. Reading it, rating it, and organizing the results. Take a look at Matchbox’s Product Tour. The software looks stunningly beautiful, and you can tell right off the bat that admissions is a process made for the iPad. If you’re as impressed as I am, go take a look at Matchbox’s Jobs page. Right now they have a few opportunities for new or recent grads including:
I know you thought that you were done with the college admissions process forever, but give Matchbox a look.
