About Us

Major Decision answers the question many families have: “Isn’t there a better way to do this?”

The Major Decision Story

The idea for Major Decision was born out of the experiences of three sets of parents and their children, all intimately familiar with the college admissions process – one family veterans of three trips through the cycle, and two other families in the thick of the process.


These families were all hungry for a way to make the process more informative, less stressful, and less expensive. For information and tools beyond the traditional ones. For a way to hear stories that only current college students can tell.


That's why we started Major Decision.

Our Mission & Values

At Major Decision, we’re dedicated to providing an independent platform and set of tools that provide a safe, secure, honest, confidential and comprehensive way for prospective college students and their families to engage in direct conversations with current students about a wide range of topics.

We truly believe “The right conversation can make all the difference.” As a learning organization, we welcome constructive feedback at any time from everyone we serve – high school students and families, college students, and high school student counselors – as well as the world at large. You can let us know here.

Trust – High school students and families can be confident that they’re conversing with college students who have been vetted and screened

Safety – Student Advisors are held to a strict Code of Conduct that promotes interactions that are safe and friendly

Openness and Honesty – Conversations are open, honest and direct, while being respectful when discussing Student Advisors’ real-world experiences

Inclusiveness - We believe that everyone has a unique perspective and story to tell. We value the diversity of our Student Advisor population, and encourage college students of all racial and ethnic groups, gender identification, and backgrounds to apply.

Similarly, we seek to accommodate high school students and families without regard to disabilities and other characteristics in order to accommodate as many knowledge-seekers as possible.
