"We were incredibly fortunate to work with College Pulse on the Chegg/College Pulse Election Tracker. The project was very ambitious, but they not only were able to deliver on a large scale, they exceeded my expectations on everything from framing the research questions to methodological rigor to presentation of insights. They were very easy to work with and a truly turn-key solution -- more importantly, their extra efforts helped us exceed our business goals for the project.”
