This needs to apply to ANYONE looking to go to school. People who financially need help or want to better themselves know no age. Stop discriminating.
I didn’t know it was only for high school students. I already graduated last year and I’m at a community college but I still need scholarships for universities. It won’t let you say you’ve already graduated. You should be able to enter college courses and grade too.
Great, but the GPA is inaccurate. 3/5
I love this app! It’s very helpful! However I would like for all of my classes to be more accurately included into my GPA, including weighted classes.
Add schools 1/5
I want to add my school and I can’t, even if I try too it says y’all servers are down, please fix it, can’t rate high if I haven’t gotten a taste of it
This app is amazing. I love it. I just got in a few days ago and so far I’m in love. The only tiny thing is it only has some Canadian colleges other than colleges in the US and US territories. It be real nice if it had a more selection on international school ;)
Great! There’s always room for improvement 5/5
I never write reviews, however, I have found this app to be unbelievably helpful in my pursuit of high education. Being able to a value on my high school achievements has helped to give me an idea of what colleges are looking for and what else I should be doing. This app is incredible. I say that but not with out room for improvement. I noticed that this app does lack a place to put midterm test scores in. My high school puts a high value on these tests as they average into our semester grades. The app does have a place for finals but midterms affect my GPA just as much.
Keep up the great work!
GPA Calculation Needs More 4/5
Everything about the app is great. I like the customizable options for courses and such, but GPA also needs to be customizable. On the app it says I have a 3.46 GPA, but in reality I have a 3.87 GPA. Different schools have different options for GPAs and the app needs to accommodate that. I think you should be able to put in your GPA yourself since schools have weighted GPAs now that can go up to a 5.0. Everything else is great besides that.
Freshman in High School 5/5
By Obsessed with obama
I’m a freshman at Liberty High School (District 53) and this has helped me by suggesting me colleges and what to aim for in my future. Thank you, Raise Me!
I love this app, my sister recommended it to me and so I started using it, but the thing is there’s only High School and some classes were taken in Middle School, such as AP-Spanish or Algebra One... and there’s no option for middle school
Helped Me 5/5
Amazing app. Wasn’t sure if I’d even earn scholarship money through this app/program but I was (happily) proven wrong. Today I received a scholarship from one of the colleges I was accepted to, saying I had raised a lot of money from RaiseMe and I was incredibly amazed!
Other than the scholarship part, RaiseMe has a lot of information on colleges that I haven’t seen from other websites and it’s really informing. The only improvement is I wish there were more colleges participating in these micro-scholarships! Overall, I’m incredibly happy that I found this app! Thank you so much!
How does this micro scholarship thing works
By Zoe :P
This is a good app but it doesn’t let me put in anything film related for my major which is a bummer!
EDIT: I’m unable to select film as my potential college major, I can only choose art or undecided, which is an issue.
please download if you’re going to college 5/5
this app is actually so amazing!! im a sophomore in high school and i realized that i don’t do much to really get scholarships, nor do i have the money to pay for colleges. this makes it so much easier!! i can put in everything. literally everything. community service hours, classes, grades and gpa’s... (the list goes on). then when you select what colleges you’re interested in, the app will automatically find you money towards that school. it’s that easy. the only thing i could ask for are more colleges. obviously the really big schools won’t be on the app, but some more small schools would be nice too. really good app though, and super helpful.
By gloria moralez
They need more micro scholarships for more schools
This is a great way to get scholarship! Very easy!
I love the idea of this app, but, it has my GPA wrong. I go to a Vanguard school, and I know for a fact that all of my PreAP(PreAP was only listed as an option for class type during setup and somehow disappeared) and AP courses are on 5.0 scales, not 4.0 scales. My actual GPA at the current moment is a 4.1, not a 3.1, but the app has my GPA as a 3.1 and it is affecting my earnings. Please add/re-add(?) PreAP as a class type and the option of changing GPA scales for singular classes would be nice, too.
Very hand tool 5/5
Even though all the schools up here don’t provide mini scholarships it still shows you schools you have a interest and the requirements it takes to get into that school.
Great app 4/5
This app is great I can see where I am standing and get money from schools but if i could add some suggestion i feel the app is lacking certifications because students like my self have lots of certs that show where they are at
I love this app. It helps me get money at the schools I love and want to go to. As of right now, I have close to $3000 in scholarships and I’ve only had this app for about a month. When you use this app, you get to see how all those good grades throughout the years have paid off. Highly recommend this app.
Easy way to earn money! Just DO IT! ITS LITERALLY FREE AND PRACTICALLY EFFORTLESS.
So awesome!!! 5/5
By Getting in Shape and inspired
Easy to use! And exciting...
Helpful, but... 4/5
I didn’t change my portfolio or anything and I lost literally a thousand dollars. I have no idea how! I didn’t change anything at all! I wish the app would tell you where you lose money. Especially since I lost the money from the university I wanted to go to. Please help?
Need 1 New Option Button! 4/5
One simple option would make the app perfect in my opinion! Which is an option to see only all the colleges I marked that I’m interested in, or a “favorite” button where I can mark them as favorite so I could check my very few colleges easier. Instead of scrolling down over and over to all my following colleges, this option would save lives!
Raise me. 5/5
Raise me is the best app I’ve ever seen!
Pretty good 4/5
Only had one real problem, which was that when you made a wrong or duplicate course you couldn’t cancel after its made
RaiseMe is very easy to understand and use for first and long time users. Whenever you enter and submit your: courses, extracurricular activities, clubs, sports, work experience, test scores, etc., real colleges that you follow can see all the cool stuff the you have done and send you actual scholarships! I have been using in for nearly two years and it still is very efficient, effective, and easy as ever.
Not so good 2/5
By beautiful RedHead
This used to be a great app but after the last update I can’t sign in. :(
People, please 5/5
By Harison Blake
Stop asking me for reviews. Be content with this five star
I can’t do anything cause of this servers problem. It keeps saying “try again later “it’s been 2 hours
I like 5/5
By ms unique from roxborough high
I’m happy this company is able to reward me and others with funds for college I think it’s a great website
Great, but where’s my major? 4/5
By Kat M Baker
So far, I love this app. But my one qualm is that the list of majors doesn’t include Animal Sciences, which is pretty much the thing I want to go to college for. Soooo fix that, pretty please?
Idea for addition 4/5
This is my second review for this app, so I’ll just quickly say that I have enjoyed this app, but I do have an addition that I think will be helpful. I think it’d be nice to have an option to say where/how a person earned/lost money from a college. Because while for earning it can be obvious as it usually happens right after you put something in, I just lost potential money and I’m confused since I haven’t changed anything. That addition would be helpful in this instance. But great app!
I’m a junior and I can’t wait to use this. But an issue I have is according to this app I have only 10.25 credit. But I have 13 credit and some colleges I’m interested in requires a certain amount of credit
Deleted account? 3/5
I loved this app to pieces. I would regularly keep track of grades and volunteer hours and jump with joy when I earned more savings. However, I recently went back to log in some data and found that everything was gone. I was devastated. It’s going to take so long to input all of the data back in.
Won’t let me add courses because it’s saying the servers are unavailable
NO CRIPPLING DEBT 4/5
By Bela N
I love the chance for micro scholarships, I just wish we could have more colleges that offer them. I also wish we could add job shadowing experience.
servers ?? 1/5
it won’t let me do anything because the servers are unavailable
Great But Needs More 3/5
While the app is a phenomenal thing for students and has plenty of things to enter from FBLA to top of class to NHS to certain awards and community service and being able to follows colleges, the app doesn’t taken into account many popular activities students are involved in. Several different honor societies that are prevalent in the US from Social Studies to foreign language to Math to Business, a vast amount of sports that are popular, clubs such as Gay-Straight Alliance, Diversity Club, language clubs, academic clubs, drama and musicals or anything theatre related, etc.
The app is great, but I’d like to see many more options available.
It is a great way to get free money with the college of your choice
Ag Classes 5/5
So far, I really like this app. It’s helping me put college costs into perspective and I’m weighing college options against each other.
However, I think a great improvement would be adding agricultural courses or somehow working this into the app. That would definitely earn a five-star rating!
Scholarships!! 😀❤️ 5/5
This app is amazing! I am the kind of person who has been searching for scholarships since I was in 5th grade (which are very hard to find btw), and now as a Freshman most of the scholarships are targeted towards juniors and seniors. This app allows you to look for colleges that are connected with RaiseMe, and get information about applications and deadlines. All you have to do is type in your grades, awards, volunteer service, and work experience and you can receive scholarships from it. The day I signed up I raised about $2,000 for a college I'd like to go to. The other thing to remember with this app however, is that the scholarship money you raise will only be saved until you apply, are admitted, and enroll in the college. I 110% support this app and recommend it!!!
How does the scholarship money get to you
It’s a good app 4/5
Overall it’s a good app but I’m trying to put my classes for this year in and it’s saying servers are currently down try again. What should I do ?
Great app, bad execution 1/5
This app started out great, now every single time I open it it says that the information is not available and I can’t click on anything. This has been happening for months and I need it to start working
Wish more colleges were involved 4/5
I’ve seen a lot of reviews and developer responses about this already, so I’ll just note that most of the more prestigious or elite colleges haven’t started participating as a warning to future people who start using RaiseMe who might be more ambitious like I am. Other than that, this is a pretty user friendly app; I very recently started using it and have had only minor problems thus far.
One problem I have encountered that is also minor but more annoying than the rest is the lack of customizable filters. I don’t want to comb through over a thousand colleges when my search could’ve been narrowed down by something like a button in a settings page that says “Set minimum average salary:_____” I understand it may be more difficult than I realize, but I still wish we could customize the filters by salary, debt, or popular majors even just a little.
Other than that, it is great and you should use it.
Amazing but one concern 4/5
I have recently downloaded the app and it’s wonderful. However, I have issues with credits because although my school does 2 semesters however, in each semester we earn 1 credit for each class. I have finished my coursework for 10th grade and now have 32 credits. How can I fix this issue?
Cant create an account 3/5
By Steph Et
This app seems promising and I would love to create an account and actually use it, however it only allows for current high school students to create an account. When creating the account, the only options it provides for year of graduation from high school as 2019 and beyond. Dissapointed.
Servers down 2/5
Whenever I want to put In anything new into my profile, it says that the servers aren’t available.
By Jenn Kanellis
This app is incredibly helpful in my college search and has provided insight into the things colleges are looking for in an applicant. I'm most excited about the guaranteed minimum amount of scholarship I will receive if I'm accepted to the schools I am following.
