Why does CollegeVine say I haven't reached the "academic requirements for this school" when I was chancing for Carnegie?
My academic profile: 3.9 Unweighted GPA, 35 ACT (35 English, 36 Math, 33 Reading, 35 Science, 9 IB Courses & 13 Honors courses (max at my school), 3 subject tests: 800 for Math II, 760 for both US History and Physics. Graduation year is 2022.
Anyone know why it says that I haven't reached the minimum academic requirements yet? Thanks!

How does karma work?
The system is simple: you receive karma (sort of like a credit) when you help others. If you're short on karma, you can do any of the following to earn more:
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on a question you post
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on an answer you post
if your answer is marked accepted
- 10 karma for reviewing an essay
- 10 karma if your essay review is rated 5 ⭐️
You can then use your karma to submit an essay for review or guarantee an expert answer on Q&A.
Thanks for writing in and explaining the results you're seeing about reaching the academic requirements. We are aware of the issue for some students and are in the process of making adjustments to the algorithm, especially now that the admissions process has changed at many schools due to COVID. We expect to release a version that also accounts for this new reality in the coming month.
In the meantime, I'd encourage you to focus on the individual breakdowns (e.g., GPA, ACT, SATII, Coursework) for the schools that you're interested in, and aim to be in the "strong" or "excellent" categories based on your demographic. That will mean you're in pretty good shape! Also, if you'd like your profile reviewed by one of our experts you could always attend a Profile Review livestream. Here's the next one: https://www.collegevine.com/livestreams/details/live_profile_review_session__5982194
Apologies for the inconvenience here. We hope to have the change out soon!
