(February 2009) Zinch URL Type of site College Admissions website Registration Free Owner Zinch, Inc. Launched March 12th 2007 Zinch is a community-based college admissions portal. It combines a variety of Web 2.0 and Web syndication tools in an attempt to help colleges and students find one another. On the site, students create profiles which in many ways resemble hyper-linked college applications. Using these profiles, they then "shout out" to colleges that they are interested in, hoping to begin a dialogue. Colleges also have the ability to search through these profiles to reach out to students. In addition, the site gives away a variety of scholarships which are judged by the site motto: "You are more than a test score" Contents 1 History 2 You Are More Than A Test Score 3 Criticism 3.1 Admissions Use of Social Networking 4 Notes 5 External links // History Zinch started out as a research project at Princeton University in June 2006[1] by a group of students.
