Did chancing simulators update?

My schools are at significantly lower percentages than they were at around midnight.

The exact same thing happened to me. I don't know why. My % of chance in different colleges looks like a nightmare now.

Hope someone from CV will explain why this has happened.

Thanks for flagging this! We're aware of the issue and are in the process of fixing it right now. Your profile should see some changes in the next 30-60 minutes. We'll leave a comment when the fix is officially live!

UPDATE: We've fixed the issue for everyone. Please check your chances again and let us know if something looks really off. The chancing algorithm is constantly learning, so you might see a slight change from yesterday, but nothing as drastic as you pointed out earlier today. The main scenario where you could see a big difference is if you have 0 extracurricular activities in your profile. If that is the case, I'd recommend adding at a least a few of your most significant extracurriculars to your profile.

We appreciate your patience and thank you again for flagging this as soon as you saw it. Please know that if we plan any major updates/changes to the chancing calculator, we will send out a notice beforehand.
