"I was under the impression remote learning simply didn’t work, but edgi proved that to be wrong. I joined the class with the intent to explore remote learning and see if it was really possible and ended it with a discussion about the truth and reality of our world."
"In edgi everyone is really nice and we can bounce off of each other's ideas which keeps lots of ideas swirling around to think about. I think we all share a lot of opinions and ideas so it's nice to hear it from other people to see how they say what they think."
"I formed close friendships remotely and had an outlet for the questions that traditional schooling hasn’t provided answers to. Edgi...expanded my concept on what education has the potential to be. In doing so I have re-evaluated what is important and engaging to me and developed a deeper confidence in myself."
The truth is the best way to stand out in college applications is also the best way to prepare for your career - figure out what you’re passionate about. Increasingly schools are looking beyond grades & test scores. They want to know more about you, and what drives you.
