Love the Scholarship Section

I really love how Cappex gives you an estimation of effort to apply and competition level because you could see if applying to that scholarship is really worth your time and you could also get an idea of how likely you are to win.

A good resource

Capped is a good resource that can help you find colleges and scholarships. However, it's not super user friendly.

Great help!

For a while, I had no idea what college I wanted to go to but Cappex helped me find a good college that I would have a good chance of getting into! Their info and quizzes really helped me through the college finding process!

Very informative and efficient

I used Cappex to figure out what colleges I am interested in. It showed me the colleges I could afford and ones that I am compatible with. Overall a great resource. It’s easy to use and fairly efficient.

Tons of information

Cappex has given me a lot of information, and it can be super helpful!

Cappex Is Pretty Good

I like Cappex, but it's definitely more of a tool that can be used with others than a sole resource. It's an awesome website that matches you with colleges and scholarships, sometimes ones you wouldn't have considered on your own. All in all, I like it, but one criticism I do have is it's not very detailed in some ways, or as accurate. If you're looking for accuracy that will update every hour and will have you on top of everything, I would be slightly cautious. Again, though, Cappex is definitely a good resource.

It's effective, but need improvement.

It is an app directed to help the applicant have contact with the university, and it does do well its job. Although it is very effective, it needs layout improvement, as the general view of the site is not so pleasant, besides being hard to navigate through it. I suggest the site continues connecting students to colleges, using the same strategy, and changing the site's layout and attractiveness to an easier design to navigate in.

Good Scholarship Resource

Lots of scholarships available, but tricky to filter and not a lot for graduate students. Great for undergrads though!

It's been helpful.

Cappex has helped me to find more scholarships to help further my education.

College Connects

I signed up for Cappex less than a week ago, and it has already gotten me into contact with 6 colleges... it's great!!
