Amongst the two of us (12th graders), we've spent nearly US$ 7000 on career counselling and college admission guidance. We think that's a huge problem, as it creates a fundamental gap in accessibility of resources, something we personally believe is unjust and must be bridged. That's where we come in. UniConnection aims to bridge that gap by bypassing the third party; it connects high-schoolers directly to students of the institution they wish to gain admission to. Thus, it allows all high school students a cheap, highly effective alternative to expensive counselling programs many cannot afford straight from someone in a similar age group with first-hand experience, and it offers University students an alternative, convenient source of income. It also eliminates the middleman by enabling payment directly to and from the concerned parties. Even though fundamental tuition is accessible to almost all individuals, there are numerous other factors that promote a chasm of inequality in educational opportunities amongst students. UniConnection is the first step towards changing that.
