Cappex requires you to create an account to access information, and doing so is probably worth your time and effort. Cappex is neat because it allows you to “easily compare colleges, read detailed reviews by students on campus, find available scholarships...even see your chances of getting into your favorite colleges.” You can also “organize the colleges you like based on what matters to you compare schools side by side and track application deadlines.” Later in Honors 100, you’ll use Cappex when searching for scholarships and writing your scholarship essay.
Like Cappex, College Board requires you to create an account to access their information.
