  1. The most obvious solution to high education costs, is to make as many of those classroom/lecture courses online as possible.

    If you are sitting in a lecture hall with 100 other students, there's no reason that course could not be online.

    Higher education is big business, and they do not want to lower costs. They could, dramatically, but they won't.

  2. When you say your app gives money back and the example on screen show a person getting .01 back it kinda deflates that statement. Especially after telling people they can narrow and focus their scholarship choices, which means even less money back due to filing fewer applications.

  3. How does this solve the problem? All it does is allow students to find potential scholarships/jobs. Soon colleges will abuse this system and increase their fees and ask you to use this app to find scholarships similar to how hospitals ask people to use gofundme to pay their medical bills.

  4. I feel like this doesn't actually solve the problem. It's a band-aid or countermeasure and doesn't actually decrease the cost of the actual education. I feel like too many edtech companies focus on catering to / replicating the existing education industry and not actually disrupting/reinventing it.

  5. Believing in the 99%? I think they mean the 99% of America. You only need to make an income of 60k to be in the global 1%, which means 62% of America is in the global 1%.
