"Think of it as a place where higher education debt meets career earning potential," says overEducate co-founder Karim Jamal. "College is a long, uncertain path that entails a lot of money leaving the pocket. We are driving to help students streamline their paths so that they have better chances of money coming back into their pockets after graduation."
The idea for the site stemmed from common questions from prospective college students - "In an environment of skyrocketing tuition, is college worth the cost?", "When will I be able to climb out of debt?" With the national spotlight on education and college costs, an increasing number of the 20,805,078 students currently attending US colleges are questioning whether or not higher education is the key to their success. This is absolutely the right question to ask as the national college debt increases by $90 billion every year.
overEducate has entered the stage in hopes of answering this question. With an unwavering focus on connecting the college-to-career pipeline, its site enables students to understand the most efficient path forward to achieving their college and career goals by utilizing the available information and tools.
The site overeducate.com is now live and being actively developed. It is continuously updated with new improvements based on feedback from students on how the site can better align with their college search endeavors.
overEducate came to be when a few friends from different educational backgrounds came together with the same unanswered questions regarding the value of college education. The company is on a mission to introduce a new and fresh approach to the process of selecting and evaluating higher education options. The company can be followed on Facebook and Twitter.
