15 Reasons College Students Should Use Flashnotes.com

Zara Mahmood, a junior at Boston University, has always had a knack for taking good notes. When her roommate noticed a link for Flashnotes.com, she encouraged Zara to check it out. Mahmood, an advertising major and business minor, is now Flashnotes.com's most well-paid student sellers. The average student is making $31/HR on the site, while other top sellers have cashed-in at over $5,000 by selling their study materials.

"Did she just say she gets paid to take notes?"

Yeah, I did. Not only does Flashnotes.com allow students to enhance all aspects of their educational lives, but they will pay you while doing so. Need more reasons to start using the site? Here are 15.

1. Flashnotes.com allows students to sell their class notes, flash cards and study guides to their fellow classmates. Additionally, these note takers can host live Q&A's and live video help sessions right on the site.

2. So if you focus and take good notes, your GPA and your bank account will both be thankful.

3. After you ace the exam you made a study guide for, you can celebrate at Roys with the money you made selling notes.

4. According to Mahmood, "it's been gratifying and I have grown as an individual." Mahmood talked about how satisfying it was to empower students by helping them with their studies.

5. Flashnotes.com is the only business of its kind that allows partnerships with disability offices to offset their program costs and provide students with disabilities 24/7 access to course materials for free.

6. Mahmood explained to me how the Flashnotes.com team is one that really cares about their users. "The general vibe I get from them is that they genuinely care. They are not just there for the money, they want to positively impact the educational system."

7. If you show the Flashnotes.com team that you have what it takes to be a successful note-taker, they will provide you with marketing tools to up your sales.

8. Again... you are getting paid to do what you should be doing anyway when in college.

9. Who doesn't like A's and Abe's? (Get it? I mean good grades and money.)

10. Flashnotes.com guarantees that there is not plagiarism, plagiarism – they actually use detection software on the site and have a zero tolerance policy for any exams or homework posted for sale. They are all about academic integrity.

11. “Students have the opportunity to start their own business within ours," said CEO and creator Mike Matousek, "We are a platform that allows our note takers to work at their own pace, help themselves by reviewing the material while composing their notes and guides and by also helping others by selling their material."

12. Flashnotes.com encourages students to work with faculty members, allowing them to strengthen relationships with their professors (which comes in handy when you need a letter of recommendation.)

13. Matousek went on to talk about how much of a resume builder the site can be. “Being a note taker shows initiative. It shows that the individual wants to make a different with his or her contribution. That stands out when you are in an interview."

14. You can work at your own pace, set your own price and have complete control of how your run your business within their business.

15. I will say it one last time... good grades and money. Isn't that what all college students want?

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
