An App for College-bound Students to Remember

By Kelsey Sarles

You're 17 going on 18. You can't wait to get out of high school. You're over the drama, the cliques, having to ask permission to go to the bathroom, the cafeteria with its plastic cutlery. You're an adult now. You're ready for sweet, sweet freedom. You're ready for college!

Planning college visits with Thought FullDid you remember to…

  • Meet with your guidance counselor?
  • Study for the SATs?
  • Sign-up for financial aid?
  • Plan your college visits!
  • Submit your college applications?

Whether you've realized it yet or not, all this new found freedom comes with a price. Yes, the plus side is that you no longer have to listen to your mom nagging you about homework. The downside is – you have to remember to finish it yourself!

For the rest of your life, it's up to you to remember all the things you need to do. Fortunately, there's an app for that, and it's called Thought Full™.

Thought Full is designed to solve the problem we all seem to have – keeping our act together.

I personally use Thought Full to record ideas, grocery lists, and new recipes. College-bound students might use Thought Full to help remember the numerous deadlines associated with college prep: college applications, scholarship applications, recommendation letters and transcripts. Then, once classes start, Thought Full is perfect for helping students keep track of assignments.

Thought Full offers four default categories:

  • To-Do: To help you remember stuff you need to-do.
  • Names: To help you remember the names of the new people you meet.
  • Ideas: To help you remember bursts of inspiration.
  • Stories: To help you remember good stories or jokes you hear.

Thought Full also gives you the ability to add categories that make sense to you. The point is, Thought Full is an app to remember what you want to remember and how you want to remember it. I hope you find Thought Full helpful and memorable, too!

Have fun visiting colleges!
