CollegeVine Chancing Calculator

I was skimming through my college vine chancing just now, and I'm a bit confused. When I go to "my list" and view all of my schools in a list form, my odds of getting accepted are higher. However, when I go into the specific school to see my chances, my percentage drops significantly. For example, Penn State tells me 87% in my sheet, but when I go into the school, it tells me under chancing, it tells me 79%. Which number is right?? I was thinking my odds of being accepted to certain schools were higher because of this. Any insight would be great. Thanks so much!

Is it possible that when you clicked on the specific college you had things altered to how it wasnt you? You know how you can click on a college and change some things about your gpa and test scores to see different possibilities? Maybe you did that on accident?

I think it was just a glitch in the system because the numbers are back to normal now, haha. Thank you so much!!
