See what others are saying about CollegeBetter!

While I am primarily motivated by the grades themselves, adding a monetary incentive to improving my GPA provides an extra push to study on those late nights. I would not have enrolled if I didn't think I could do well in my courses, but I enjoyed the extra incentive.

CollegeBetter gave me the opportunity to challenge myself in a fun way while earning money for raising my GPA. I chose CollegeBetter because the application process was easy. It took me less than 3 mins to completed it. I successfully achieved my goal of raising my GPA and I earned some money too! It's like getting paid for something that all students are persuading anyways, raise our GPA every quarter. I studied even harder than before in order to raise my GPA. I developed good study habits on the way. I would totally recommend this to any student who is willing to get out of their comfort zone, raise their GPA, and earn some money too!

It was hard to motivate myself to get down to studying for the class. When I signed up for CollegeBetter, I keep telling myself that I cannot let myself lose my $20 over my laziness. So, I felt slightly more motivated to study for class. I would recommend this to others, especially the ones who are in need of money. That material motivation can egg them on too, I believe.


I chose CollegeBetter since it was a good way to earn back your money while also motivating your studies to earn it back. I would recommend it for others.

CollegeBetter definitely motivated me to try harder in class and to learn more. I signed up because it sounded like a really cool idea, and I highly recommend it for others. I plan on signing up every term until I graduate. The $20 buy-in is certainly a better investment than the $200+ professors force us to spend on textbooks. This world needs more cool programs like CollegeBetter.


I decided to participate because I wanted some extra motivation. I successfully raised my gpa and felt myself focusing better in class/doing homework because of CollegeBetter. I have recommended CollegeBetter to other people because it really helped me in those moments of weakness; it was the little extra push necessary to keep me working hard.


I chose to participate mostly because I had the confidence that I would be able to raise my GPA. Participating in CollegeBetter would just mean getting money for continuing to do well academically. When I was registered in the program, CollegeBetter didn't exactly motivate me to study more, but it was definitely on my mind because I didn't want to lose my initial buy-in.


I chose to participate because I really needed to increase my GPA for my last quarter at UC Davis. I felt like I would have increased my GPA regardless of CollegeBetter, but I always say that for every quarter and it doesn't always happen. I feel that I am very motivated by money. To get a higher GPA than before is kind of an abstract goal. You can't physically hold a higher GPA in your hands. Money is different. It's a physical goal and I think that's much more motivating to me. I was successful. I feel like I really did work harder in school because of CollegeBetter. For me, I think it's a win-win situation. I work harder, I get better grades, and I win money. I would definitely recommend CollegeBetter for people who are motivated by money.
