"Nothing against Flavor Flav, but he's not my type." Zorogastua said she'd be more willing to give Date My School a go, since she could narrow the search to a student also in an intense grad program who understands she doesn't have to time to commit to a serious relationship.

Don't be offended by online-dating rejection "A lot of people knock it, they just thinks it's kind of cheesy, but you know what, it's an option," Andy Lalinde said.

Karent Zorogastua, a second-year grad student at Columbia's School of Public Health with a hectic schedule, registered with but stopped after guys she was not interested in contacted her.

"There was one guy who looked like Flavor Flav, and I was like, 'Oh no, this is not working for me,' " she said.

(CNN) -- Though they had perhaps crossed paths several times on campus, it was only when Andy Lalinde was scrolling through images of cute girls online that the one with brunette hair standing in some South American country caught his eye. With nothing to lose, Lalinde wrote a funny message proclaiming his love for nurses and hit send. While they could have passed each other walking to class, it took -- an online dating website exclusively for college students -- to bring them together and officially exchange vows on April 29.

He opened her profile and saw her name was Michelle Przybyski. One walk of four hours with Lalinde's dog, Domino, around campus and a date at the library (that didn't really involve studying) later, the two Columbia University graduate students applied for a marriage license in New York just 10 days after meeting in person. With countless dating websites such as match.com, and okcupid.com, the online dating market is a bit crowded.

"Usually, people have a date within the same day they register," Alexa said.

If potential lovers weren't meeting in the classroom, the university needed a better platform for both sexes to interact.

Some have compared it to Facebook -- pointing out that the social network was also open to only college students when it began.

But Alexa insists Date My School is not the next Facebook.

This month, the site launched at 140 more schools nationwide, giving more college students the opportunity to meet their future husbands or wives.

Alexa and Meyer, both recent graduates of the Business School, came up with the idea after a girlfriend complained that there was not enough testosterone in the School of Social Work.

"We expanded in a similar manner that they did initially, but then they opened it up for everybody in the world," he said.
