Admit.me is a free, tools-based social network with a purpose (if you haven't figured out from our name) to help you get admitted into school. We created an environment where you can interact with other applicants and utilize tools to help you through the admissions process.
Online profile (resume) to display your background and allow peers, experts, schools, and other key partners to connect with you
Online calendar to keep track of the admissions milestones
Document repository to store the latest and greatest application documents
Contact list to keep track of your most important admissions connections
Discussion board to get the latest information about schools and interact with others
Admit.me's purpose is to ensure that sound admissions advice and support is available for every single candidate regardless of location, status, or finances. . Admit.me will allow anyone with an internet connection to get real insight into the admissions process.
Why not? Not only is “everyone” doing it, it is also a free tool with the latest information and access to experts, schools, and fellow applicants all in one place. Can you say no-brainer?
The founders of Admit Advantage, a leading admissions consulting company, started Admit.me. Scholarship alumni of schools like Harvard, Brown, and Wharton, they would not have received such education without support along the way — this is our way of giving back. Click here to see their bios.
It happens to us all the time. Go to the Login Page — there is a convenient “Forgot Password” link that will help you out.
You can only see announcements from people who are in your contact list. Add your friends as a contact to stay updated on their announcements.
The announcements icon below the Admit.me logo on the top left tells you if you have any new announcements. It will highlight the number of announcements in orange indicating time to check out the home page!
All of your contacts and the contacts of the person you send the announcement to can see your comments.
The best way to do that is to add them to your contacts list and send them a private message from your Inbox. However, don't keep all the good information from the community — feel free to share!
When you first start, we recommend adding information via the wizard. To get to the wizard, click on “Add your profile” in the top right section. You can add to each individual section by clicking on the ‘+’ icon corresponding to each section.
Go to the specific line item that you want to edit and click the edit icon to change the entry (pencil). If you want to delete the entry altogether, click on the ‘x’ icon next to the entry. Just the way you're used to!
As much as you can. The most important would be your target schools (they drive your calendar), education, and work experience. The more you add, the more connections you're likely to make and the greater chance you will have of connecting with a school, scholarship, or employer. Additionally, you will be able to find out about our offerings related to your specific needs and interests.
Do your best to fill out what you know. It's better to take an educated guess than leave it blank. You can always change it later.
Not a problem. You can click the “Do not display” checkbox next to your test score and we will not post your score information.
No, but it helps. People tend to feel a connection when there is a picture. If you're not very good looking — it's OK, neither are the founders and a lot of other members too.
We're sure your school is wonderful, but somehow it didn't make the list for the initial cut. Go ahead and type the name in and we will eventually add it to our master list. We will be going over the additions and adding them to the dropdown list on a regular basis.

If you like a discussion and want to follow it, simply go to the discussion section and click “Follow Discussion”
We can't cover every topic area, but we're happy to create new discussion areas based on user need. Just email us at email@example.com, put “New Discussion Idea” in the subject, offer your idea, and we'll take it from there! For now, please post in the most appropriate discussion board.
There is search functionality on the discussion page where you can search for relevant keywords in an content or discussion. Choose the appropriate radio button for “Content” or “Discussion” and have at it in the search field. If you can't find it, start the discussion!
Just click on “Invite people” and type in their email. You can also click on the name of a person that is not in your contact list and click “Invite Contact” from their profile page. The user has to accept your invitation in order to have them added to your contact list, so be nice to them!
Not yet, but stay tuned.
You will see an update in your Contact Requests icon on the top left under the Admit.me icon. It will highlight the number of people looking to connect with you so you can accept the invitation on the Contacts page.
You must not have any target schools in your profile. Add at least one target school in your profile or you can add a school from the calendar page. See below.
You can add schools directly on the Calendar page by clicking “Add School” or go back to your profile and “Add Target Schools”. If you add a school on the Calendar page, it will automatically be added to your profile.
Not yet, but in time.
Certainly. The tool is flexible enough to add nearly anything. Just click “Add School” and enter the event that you want to track and go from there.
Make sure you have the correct school highlighted and click on “New Document” to add a document.
Go to the document you want to revise and click “Add Revision” to upload the latest copy of the document. Note, the name should be the same as the existing document.
Unfortunately, no. We asked you a few times if you're sure you wanted to delete — we meant it.
Yes, for now. We will keep your storage capacity as high as possible depending on demand and will let you know once you reach the limit. In the near future, we will have a different solution!
Your friend has to be part of the Admit.me network and be one of your contacts. Go ahead and invite your friends to join you on Admit.me and invite them to be a contact! Once they accept, you’re in business and can email them directly!
No. The email system is for internal use only right now.
You can get notifications about emails directly to your email account. Check your settings.
You will see a highlighted icon on the top left corner indicating if you have any new announcement or email.

If we don't have enough information, we'll ask you to complete it in advance of the assessment.
Very. Our consultants have all graduated from top undergraduate and graduate programs like Harvard, Yale, Brown, Stanford, Oxford, Chicago, University of Pennsylvania, Princeton, HKUST, etc., and have expertise in your specific area of interest. All have worked as admissions consultants with many serving on admissions committees and as alumni interviewers.

There is no place for that on Admit.me. Feel free to let us know by emailing email@example.com and we will take appropriate action.
