How does College Vine's chancing work?
Answered

Hello! When the chancing percentages appear in the College Vine profile, are these representing the acceptance rates? For example (and it's just an example), if MIT's traditional acceptance rate is 5%, and my chancing says 9%-13%, does this mean that in my case, my acceptance rate is no longer 5%, but rather College Vine's range? Or would it be more like taking the average (eg. (5+9)/2 to ((5+13)/2)), so that it results in 7%-9%?

My question is, what does College Vine's chancing truly represent?

Hello there! Our chancing percentages are your individual acceptance rate. So, if you have a 9-13% chance of getting into MIT when their published acceptance rate is 5%, that just means that you have a stronger than average profile compared to people applying to MIT from your demographic background. We hope this helps, and let us know if you have more questions!
