What is eQuez?2019-05-19T20:26:51+00:00

eQuez stands for “educational quest.” eQuez is a platform that educates students about careers and helps students find and connect with best-fit schools. Our mission is to help students make informed decisions about higher education.

What is an eRank?2019-05-19T20:30:10+00:00

An eRank is a personalized ranked list of schools that is based on a student’s specific school preferences. An eRank is not a predictor of your chances of getting admitted into a particular school.

How is an eRank determined?2019-04-11T13:13:52+00:00

An eRank is determined based on an individual student’s specific school preferences. We look at factors such as desired location, class size, campus setting and availability of campus housing to determine which schools will land on a student’s eRank and in what order. There is no one-size-fits-all absolute eRank. Each student’s eRank is personalized based on his or her profile.

Can schools pay to influence their placement in a student’s eRank?2019-05-19T20:30:36+00:00

Schools cannot pay to influence or improve their placement in a student’s personalized eRank. eQuez also independently determines which schools are on our platform, and we do our best to display all available options. eQuez does not endorse any particular school or program.

Is the service free for students?2019-05-19T20:32:04+00:00

Yes, our platform is free for students to use. Students already have significant educational expenses. We wanted to create a resource that is free and accessible to all students.

What types of programs are on the platform?2019-05-19T20:32:37+00:00

We currently have one program on our platform – podiatric medicine for students interested in pursuing a Doctor of Podiatric Medicine (DPM) degree. We have plans to expand into other programs – stay tuned!

Is my profile information shared with anyone?2019-05-19T20:33:21+00:00

Your profile information may be shared with relevant schools and associations that use the eQuez platform to connect with interested students. Your profile helps schools and associations discover and connect with you as you explore different career and school options.

How do you protect my information?2019-05-19T20:34:52+00:00

We care about and respect your privacy and security. eQuez uses industry standard technology to keep your information secure. We have specialized security teams who regularly review and improve our measures to protect your personal information. You may refer to our Privacy Policy for additional information.

At what stage in the search and admissions process should I create a profile and get my eRank?2019-05-19T20:36:08+00:00

As soon as you have an interest in a particular career or program we recommend you create a profile. Schools and associations have the chance to learn about your interest early on and you can get a head start exploring and developing connections with relevant schools. Schools and associations may also have relevant events, opportunities, and programs that you may be interested in or eligible to participate in before applying to or attending a particular school. You also have the ability to update your profile as your education progresses and as your educational and career goals evolve and/or advance.
