“In the rapidly evolving realm of college applications, where competition is fiercer than ever, an innovative solution has emerged from the convergence of artificial intelligence and education. Easythanks, an Atlanta-based AI startup founded by Simms Jenkins and Amber Fawlkes Brinkman, aims to revolutionize the way students approach the daunting task of applying to college.

By harnessing the power of AI, Easythanks seeks to provide students with the tools they need to stand out in a crowded field and increase their chances of securing admission to their dream schools.


AI In college apps

Amidst debates surrounding the impact of generative AI on education, Easythanks steps into the spotlight as a beacon of innovation in the collegiate landscape. With the rollout of ChatGPT in late 2022, concerns about plagiarism and cheating were met with recognition of AI’s potential as a valuable resource for students. Building upon this momentum, Easythanks offers a user-friendly platform designed to assist students in navigating the complexities of the college application process. 

By leveraging AI technology, students can now craft personalized emails tailored to admissions officers, ensuring that crucial follow-ups are timely and effective. Simms Jenkins, the visionary behind Easythanks, envisions the platform as not only a tool for college applications but also a valuable resource for various stages of life where effective communication is paramount.


AI startups and the “college tech” world

As the demand for innovative solutions in college applications continues to rise, Easythanks finds itself at the forefront of a burgeoning market dubbed the “College Tech” world. With over a million applications submitted through the Common App in 2023 alone, the need for streamlined processes is more pressing than ever. Easythanks joins a cadre of startups, including StudentBridge, Funding U, and BestFit, dedicated to revolutionizing different aspects of the college experience.

Each of these startups offers unique solutions tailored to address specific pain points in the application journey. StudentBridge, for example, leverages virtual enrollment solutions to provide students with immersive experiences that showcase campus life. Funding U takes aim at the financial challenges of higher education, offering merit-based student loan services to deserving candidates. BestFit focuses on student retention, employing data analytics to identify at-risk students and provide targeted support. Together, these startups represent a paradigm shift in the way students approach the college application process, offering hope for a more accessible and equitable future in higher education.

As the landscape of college applications continues to evolve, the emergence of innovative solutions like Easythanks raises important questions about the role of AI in education. Can AI truly level the playing field for students, or does it risk exacerbating existing inequalities? As we navigate these complexities, one thing remains clear: the future of college applications is undeniably intertwined with the advancements of AI technology.

As students and educators alike embrace these changes, the potential for positive impact on the college experience is limitless. In the end, the true measure of success lies not only in admission to prestigious institutions but also in the ability of AI startups like Easythanks to empower students on their journey towards personal and academic growth.”
