This is Concourse.

Concourse is a free user-friendly online tool designed to help high school counselors find best-fit university programs for their students. Students are empowered to think creatively about their futures, and based on their unique interests and academic background, Concourse delivers program recommendations specific to their ambitions, with clear rationales. Counselors are able to track the progress of each student during the search process and can provide additional information to fine-tune program recommendations.

The result is an extraordinarily nimble, responsive company that understands the needs of students, counselors, and universities around the globe and a solution that stems from groundbreaking intelligent matchmaking.
