CTI College Search Debuts Free College Matching System

Online CollegeMatch™ Finds Schools That Are Similar to Other Schools

MARLBOROUGH, MA--(Marketwire - April 14, 2010) -  CTI College Search, a section of CityTownInfo.com, today announced the debut of CollegeMatch™ (http://www.citytowninfo.com/college-match), a free online system that identifies schools with similar characteristics and greatly reduces the time and effort in researching institutions across the United States. It compares each school against 7,000 other colleges, universities, and career schools on more than 50 statistical measures to find the closest fit.

"Researching and identifying like schools can be a time consuming and daunting task," said Eric Enge, Vice President of Marketing at CityTownInfo.com. "With the advent of CollegeMatch, prospective students can quickly and easily identify schools that are similar in nature simply by answering two questions. This tool should be invaluable not only to students but to parents, guidance counselors, and career centers."

Developed by CTI College Search researchers, CollegeMatch uses proprietary matching algorithms designed to use the most telling characteristics of each school in finding similar schools.

"CollegeMatch is an excellent tool in helping college applicants and their counselors identify schools they might not have thought about," said Nancy MacDonald, College Counselor at the Robert Louis Stevenson School in New York City. "Especially helpful is the fact that schools are ranked by the percentage they are similar to the school to which they are being compared. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking to expand the list of schools they are considering."
