Put simply, All Star is in the business of connecting students and schools.
We help students find schools that are great matches for their educational
needs, personal preferences and lifestyles, and schools pay us for our work.
Here's a quick Q & A of information we think you should know if you choose
to use our websites. The main takeaways: Using our services is free, but
starting and completing a degree, certificate or diploma program takes
commitment and effort and should be considered carefully.
1. How do you provide your services for free?
Schools pay to advertise on our sites. This allows us to offer our service
to prospective students like you for free.
Schools place a very high priority on enrolling students who go on to
graduate. By using All Star's focused, information-rich services, schools
can be more confident that the prospective students we introduce them to are
truly committed to their education and to succeeding once they're enrolled
2. How do you differ from your competitors?
There are other companies out there that do what we do. But there is no one
that does it with more integrity or respect for our users and their choices.
We put you, the student, in control. You get to choose the schools you're
interested in, and you get to choose what programs you'd like to learn more
about. We will never submit your contact information to a school without
3. Do you really work with ALL schools?
No. Our listings are not exhaustive, we do not list all schools, but they do
include a rich selection of options. We believe this wide variety of options
from hundreds of schools meets the needs of most prospective students who
visit our sites. We partner with smaller schools that specialize in one
particular career field, such as Pima Medical Institute, as well as
world-class, multi-discipline institutions like the University of Southern
4. Is getting a degree really going to open up doors for me?
We really want you to succeed in the program you choose. So does your
school. But we feel compelled to be very frank and upfront: You must work
hard and stay committed to graduate. And assuming you do graduate, there is
no guarantee you will find a job in your chosen field, or any job for that
Obtaining an education has many personal benefits and can also improve your
financial prospects. However, it's important to keep in mind that obtaining
an education does not guarantee financial success or even a job. Job markets
vary greatly by region, state, and even locally, and are affected by trends
in the national economy and even international events. Other factors
affecting your job-hunting success may include your job history and
experience, and your level of education, degree, or certificate type. Your
area of specialization plays a role, too.
5. If I do find a job, what can I expect in terms of salary?
The government publishes a great deal of information related to hundreds of
jobs on the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) website. We use this as a
resource for many of the articles on the All Star websites. As comprehensive
as the BLS information is, it is neither complete nor entirely accurate. The
BLS salary information we publish is a national average. Actual salaries for
a particular job or skill may be different where you live. For example, if
you live in a large city or where the job market for particular skills is
especially competitive, such as Silicon Valley in California, you're likely
to receive a higher wage or salary for the same job than you would in a
rural or economically depressed market. Other factors that can affect salary
rates include the size of the employer, union contracts and governmental
regulations to name a few.
