BACKGROUND
Let’s face it, researching and investigating colleges is a tedious and daunting task. The majority of college students only apply to 3 colleges, most of which are in-state. Why is that? Simply because young students have no real direction on where to begin their college search or how to go about finding relevant information.  So most students end up going to schools where their friends are going or staying close to home. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could learn about a multitude of colleges in a matter of minutes? Cappex.com is such a service.

Cappex.com is an online service that allows students to create a profile which will match the student to colleges across the country that fit their personality, career path and economic status. Once the student fills out a profile and survey they will receive emails from colleges interested in them and would be a good fit. The service all automatically lets the student know his or her chances of being accepted to a specific university. Students can even apply to scholarships with the click of a mouse. Since all of your personal information is stored on Cappex.com you won’t have to fill out lengthy forms or write any essays! Cappex.com is a secure website and will not release any of your information to any mailing list or 3rd party.

The best part about Cappex.com is that the entire service is completely free. Currently, the service has hundreds of colleges across the country and is adding more each day.

Alissa- I'm a sophomore and don't have my SAT/ACT or final GPA but I already know the type of college I want and am willing to go out of my zone. After reading Mike's book ,I want to get ahead of the game with my NTA's and so on. Please contact me if you can. I don't know if Cappex takes students who don't have all academic facts together. posted Feb 9th, 2011 10:57 pm

Actually, just to throw it out there... Zinch.com in not a 'scam' scholarship site. I have won a scholarship from there and they helped a lot. So just throwing a heads up... don't judge until you know about the site and have done research on it. Or else, all the time you are putting in for scholarship hunting is being wasted.

Hope that helps some. posted Jan 14th, 2010 11:55 pm

Cappex is a great website. Its different from other websites such as > zinch.com , which is a total scam-ish.

Hi there,

I read this article and also all the student comments and wanted to respond!



Cappex.com has over 1,300 colleges connecting with students on the site.



In order to receive colleges matches, yes, students do have to fill out a profile so Cappex can determine what schools would be a good fit.



If anyone has any questions about Cappex or MeritAid.com, please feel free to email me at support@cappex.com!

Happy college searching!



Regards,

Alissa at Cappex.com

It's vital that seniors in high school or anyone that is college bound use Cappex to find a college that best fits their career path and goals for the future. I used it to find a school that was in a different area but fit me better. Has anyone else found success using this site? posted Jul 14th, 2008 12:51 pm
