It has been really helpful in my search for colleges, considering I didn't know where to go before installing this app. However, it has some issues. 1. It refreshes when you change to other apps, so you lose the progress you have made. 2. When looking colleges by majors, it doesn't show the Classics major! Please fix this, since it is offered almost everywhere. If you show History, you should also show Classics.

I think this is a good app but I think it needs some features/improvements: - why does it take you out of the favorites every time I'm done with one of the profiles. I press back and and back to the home screen instead of back to favorites. - why do the locations have such general descriptions. They are basically the filters you set when doing the search. - why do the locations not have any pictures of the location. Maybe add top 5 things or something - refreshes when you leave app

The content in the app is great and very insightful. My problem, however, is that the app keeps refreshing when I leave it to go to another app. When I return, either the app is blank or it refreshes to the home page and I lose previous progress. I then have to rerun my queries, which is extremely annoying!
