Researching colleges? Keep track of them all with this handy spreadsheet. College search spreadsheets are magical. They let you keep track of all your college info and compare it easily. With tools like Google Drive and Dropbox, you can access your spreadsheets all the time on your phone and laptop. You can even color-code the fields—if you want to get really crazy. We tell students to make a spreadsheet for their college search all the time. (It came up three times in our Ultimate Guide to the College Search alone!) But after we looked online and saw there weren’t many sample college search spreadsheets out there, we decided we needed to take matters into our own hands.

Note: This is our example template, so we can't grant you access to edit this specific document. But you can download the Google Sheets file to your own computer to make your own personal copy, copy and paste the fields in a new document, or just look at it for inspiration.
