Inspiration

Impersonal college research is extremely difficult and ratings from websites are objective. Niche.com and USNews do not provide accurate analysis on the aspects of a college, making it difficult to truly analyze them. In addition, it is way too difficult to sift through 1000s of comments in order to get real information on a college.

What it does

after scraping numerous websites, I have created a filter in order to assist people search for topics within comments sections. Then by using sentiment analysis the overall positivity rating is ranked.

How I built it

nodejs, mongoDB, jquery, js, html, css

Challenges I ran into

It could have been grander, hackathon was only 12 hours not 24

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

making the college search process easier

What I learned

What's next for Rational Ratings (Concept)

improving the scraper and incorporating it into the program
