This same exact thing happened to me. I don't really know why, but I hope it will get fixed. It's not accurate, as my reaches and now targets.

Hey @crsgo0422 thanks for asking this question and for contributing to the forum so frequently! We appreciate it. It's important to know that we constantly adjust the chancing engine, and these latest chances you received are just what’s reflected in the data. We recognize and understand that seeing your chances change randomly can be a bit confusing and we're working on better messaging so when this does happen it will be more clearly communicated and you'll have a better understanding on why they did change.

So not to me but I’ve heard others ask it. The best advice I have is 1: it’s an algorithm and is thus not perfect 2: it seems to me CV is updating the algorithm and you should wait approx a week before you look at it again as it should/might be finished by then.

If you need help email support@collegevine.com

Hope this helps and comment if you need clarification.

I would advise you to reintroduce your statistics / refresh your profile.

In any case, I find the chances calculator very useful but you should be careful how to interpret them. Given that there are so many factors into play plus the human factor of the admissions’ office, they can only give you a feeling rather than a certainty on how likely is your success or failure. There is no magic recipe for admissions and luck is part of the game. The calculator, in my view, will help you to reduce the lack factor but not to eliminate it. Good luck !
