NEW YORK (AP) - New York City's public school system and its public university have a new resource to help students get to college and succeed once they get there.
It's a website that answers questions such as how to choose colleges and who qualifies for financial aid.
Schools Chancellor Dennis Walcott said Wednesday that the web site is like having a personal adviser.
City University of New York Chancellor Matthew Goldstein calls it "an access window to collegiate opportunity."
The effort is part of a citywide college readiness initiative.
It's being funded through a $3 million grant from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
