Creating a Keyword Search in Cortex

Programs have the option of using the Keyword Search within Cortex, which will search applications using custom keyword/s that the program created.  Keyword search in Cortex uses parsing and natural language processing to review all the applications and highlight words that are key/important to your program.

NOTE: Cortex will scan all structured application data, LORs, Personal statement, MSPE.
