Many college students are going through finals week right now, and as someone who knows college life firsthand from being a student at Brown, Emma Watson is cheering for ya!

The actress known as “EmWatson” on Twitter sent out this Tweet for everyone cramming, taking tests and finishing up papers:

Like Emma, we at MTV Act have got ya backs, students!

In fact, we’ve got some good news for people currently in college and younger students who want help getting into college. Over the past year, Get Schooled’s audience has grown almost 50% and more than a million students checked out the site to get aid from it. About a thousand new accounts got created weekly and more than a million helpful and educational games got played.

Get Schooled has been doing so well that they’ve been given a Google Global Impact Award and are being featured in Google’s program, 12 Days of Giving. Annnnd  … Google is also giving them $2 million. With this new money, Get Schooled will be expanding and getting bigger and better than ever in 2014.

As it is, high school students get a little less than 40 minutes of college counseling each year, and that’s just not enough to answer all your Q’s and help you figure out what steps you ought to take. That’s why Get Schooled answers your questions and has a more personalized approach. Emma’s wishing you the best this week, and next year we can’t wait to see Get Schooled become even more personalized and have more ways to help you!
