USHER is an interface to enable aspirants to make a informed choice about colleges/institutes while hunting for admissions.
It serves the following purposes-
 
1) Acts as a handy and updated database of information about colleges/institutes
The users can mix-match parameters to filter colleges suiting to their needs. They can also browse details of a college.
 
2) Acts as a mediator between aspirants (society as a whole) and the college body.
- The users of USHER will get to know of inside-out happenings of a college. 
- The aspirants can get in direct contact with college students to get first -hand information from them.
- Thus the society is kept informed of how a college is performing
 
 
USHER has a SMS model. 
In this model volunteers are provided option of free SMS notification of the queries. 
This is likely to enhance their chances of responding to a query.
The aspirants, on the other hand, can  buy a subscription (mimal amount) to receive 
notificaton (through SMS) of response to queries.
 
 
USHER also has a point system.
The volunteers gets points on answering a question.
They may get some gifts in exchange of these points
This is likely to encourage them to respond more frequently and efficiently.
 
 
The points which I kept in mind while designing these pages were -
1) Reduce the clicks
2) Reduce fresh page loads correspomding to each operation
3) Page layout to be simple, to reduce the clutter in visual comprehension
4) Maintain a serious look of the web application.
5) Avoid vertical or horizontal scroll - the layout should fit into any screen size it is viewd on.
