Apply for college the high-tech way


Somewhere around this time of the year, about 120 years ago, when I was a senior in high school applying for colleges, I could have used something like this service. Of course, with the advent of the Internet and other technologies, there are a million things I could say that about.

But I thought I'd tell people about CollegeZapps, a company I recently learned about. It's seeking to make a business out of that one tedious, hair-pulling, once-in-a-lifetime rituals: applying for colleges.
