Project background

Web app Jak Stat

By students, for students—as stated by the founders of JAK STAT. Their goal is to help pre-medical students be better informed about their competition, and to help them take steps towards improving their resume.

Every year, more than 53,000 students apply tomedical schools with only one-third of them getting accepted. With the increasingly competitive environment, applicants are constantly on the search for opportunities to maximize their chance of success. With JAK STAT, they are able to track their progress and select resources that would increase their competitiveness.

Cooperation with IT Craft kicked off with the business analyst and team of UX/UI designers gathering requirements needed to prepare wireframes for the future system. Once everything was approved, the designers implemented the graphical representation of the project, and development started using Agile methodology.
