Cappex vs. Zinch
All of us at Cappex know there are lots of ways students can search for colleges. With the entire web at your fingertips, knowing which site is going to serve you best can be perplexing. We realize Cappex isn’t the only choice out there, but when it comes to finding your perfect college match, browsing the largest scholarships database, and learning from hundreds of thousands of reviews by students just like you, we like to think we’re the best choice. To prove it, here is what makes Cappex stand out about the rest:
Our job is to make the college search and admissions process not only a simple one, but one you can trust. Our site launched in 2007, and since then, we have over 3.8 million cumulative student users. More than 19,000 guidance counselors from high schools around the country use the site’s resources. Over 1,700 colleges and universities connect with students through the site, and we regularly interact with our 187,000+ Facebook likes and 8,500+ Twitter followers. Our blog is updated with new content at least twice daily with topics that matter to students–scholarships that expire soon, tips on life in college, even advice about getting along with your roommate.
The college profiles at Cappex are the most comprehensive you’ll find anywhere. The profiles are populated by data from the Integrated Post-Secondary Education Data System (or IPEDS) as governed by the US Department of Education. Cappex scours thousands of data points to provide a unique search process that caters to the users’ interests, needs, and aspirations, thereby allowing students to search according to what “fits” them best. College search made simple indeed.
Cappex’s scholarship team is second-to-none. We’re constantly scouring the earth for new scholarships, checking facts, and monitoring deadlines to continue to grow the web’s largest scholarship database, focusing not only on national scholarships, but less competitive local ones that students are more likely to win.
We know the search can be daunting. It’s never too soon to start looking for your perfect college match, or too late to try to find scholarship money to help pay for college. That’s why we’re here. Join today, and let us help simplify your college search.
