How accurate is CV's chancing??

Heyall, hope you all are doing well!

I wanted to ask about the accuracy of College Vine's chancing. The chancing seems to be highly inflated, and I'm not sure if I can trust it. It's kind of giving a sense of overconfidence, which I don't want to happen.

(eg, it's saying I have something like a 28% chance into Upenn, and the other ivies. There is no way an ivy is a target school)

is this a glitch in the system orr??

To be direct, No it's not accurate at all. Don't get hopes up or low because of it.

The chancing on Collegevine might be inflated because of multiple reasons like: you are a person of color, you are part of the LGBTQ+ community, you are a 1st-generation immigrant, the ivy school is in your home state, one of your relatives went there, you are a low income student, or you have a scholarship.
