I would like for there to be a way to track the status of pending applications, and some sort of way to determine which scholarships have and haven't been applied for in the listings. You can apply to a scholarship over and over by going through the listings and there is nothing telling you whether it has been applied for or not. There is no way to determine which scholarships you have applied for and which you have not, you don't even receive an error message stating that you have already applied when trying to reapply. ~I apologize if this is not very thorough, I had written a longer review but had to edit it because it is limited to 1000 characters.

Burlington is a small town with alot of stores and things to do. A mall, restaurants, shopping complexes all in a very small area. The town is very safe and friendly. The only downfall is rush hour traffic in the area is always bad.
