Common Application Review Solution

Written by:

The Common Application is home to student data that’s crucial to decision making. But transferring data from the CommonApp to another system can be a hassle, and admissions offices are handicapped when notes, rankings, and comments exist in different systems.

DecisionDesk solves this with a cloud-based SaaS (Software as a Service) product that streamlines any admissions process. Our intuitive application review solution enables colleges to make smarter, faster, more thorough decisions. With more efficient decision making, admissions staff can return their focus to yielding the strongest class.
