New social network Nestlings aims to ease college admissions process

Mountain View, California, 10/15/2016 - Nestlings steps forward with it’s social networking platform, in introducing a revolutionary way for students to make connections to top accredited universities. Students are given a simplified platform to apply for not only universities, but for jobs, internships and scholarships. Nestlings also includes features for staying connected to mentors, recruiters, friends, former teachers and university faculty.

Students are able to easily keep track of deadlines, invites, special functions and events, as well as show off their achievements, awards, accomplishments and test scores. Nestlings is the only social network and application system of it’s kind.

Nestlings student profiles are open to be viewed by universities, recruiters and employers. Having a central system for recruiters to search for students takes the hassle out of scouting and trying to gather unorganized information about students. Universities are able to easily recruit students who have completed their application process and who would best represent their institutions with an unbiased view. How does this differ from the usual application process? The current student application process is too complicated and different for each school. This process takes far too much time filling out different application forms for each individual institution.

Nestlings creates a standardized application process for all institutions worldwide. The student profile includes all information necessary that institutions would need in order to recruit students with ease. Currently university applications are not interactive. With Nestlings, student applications are interactive in such a way that institutions can see live recommendations, ratings, essays, articles written by students and student supports.

Nestlings rewards students through their platform by using points incentives that gives students a chance to redeem gift cards to cover the costs associated with college life.

Nestlings was founded by Sowmya Satish and Raj Shekar. Prior to their creation of Nestlings, Sowmya and Raj had played around with the idea of creating an app to sell used items and services within their community, but it wasn’t until later, that Sowmya had come up with the idea to create a social network containing student profiles. This would in turn, help students connect with other students, universities, financial aid, faculty, mentors and alumni.
