How accurate are college vine's chancing percentages??
Answered

I really want to attend the university of michigan, but College Vine has categorized that school as a Long Reach for me, and says i have a 1-3% chance of getting in. Umich has a 26.5% acceptance rate, and I have a 3.9 unweighted 4.2 weighted, 5 APs total, 3-4 light extracurriculars, and a 32 superscore. Basically just reallyyyy average.

Am I as hopeless as college vine says I am lol??

There must be a glitch because from what you wrote abou your grades and stats, you are in the U.Mich sweet spot. I would put you in the 26-31% range, not the 1%-3%.

The acceptance rate for UMich is around 23-27%.

Your G.P.A. and Test Scores are in the average range for UMich. And because you don't have any other major extracurriculars a 26.5 is pretty accurate.

Try to stand out by using the essays or other extracurriculars related to your major.
