Update

The Wall Street Journal's Walt Mossberg called Unigo "a college resource built for the age of YouTube and Facebook."

The site - which features hundreds of thousands of college reviews uploaded by current college students - attracts more than 1 million unique visitors every month. Unigo has also partnered to provide college information and reviews to a number of major media brands including USA Today, US News & World Report, The Wall Street Journal, The Huffington Post, ABC News, McGraw-Hill Education and more.

Unigo has also built one of the largest networks of professional college counselors in the U.S., and offers 1-on-1 counseling from more than 700 top admissions experts via video chats through the Unigo site.

The site also sells Absolute Admit, an online course teaching students how to increase their chances throughout the college admissions and financial aid process. Absolute Admit is taught by former admissions officers from more than 60 top schools including Stanford, MIT, Columbia, Brown, Wesleyan, Williams, Princeton, U.Penn, Duke, NYU and more.

Finally, Unigo also licenses a variety of technology products directly to universities to help them maximize their admissions, retention, career placement and alumni-giving results.

Unigo's investors include McGraw-Hill Education Ventures. The site has won education grants from The Gates Foundation and received awards / recognition from The Association of Educational Publishers, AlwaysOn, Facebook, the InfoCommerce Group and the Webby's.
