CV Chances Significant Decrease
Hi, when I initially joined CV my chances at schools like UCI, UCSD, UCSB etc were between like 50-60% due to my course rigor. Now after looking at the site once again the chances decreased significantly and all of a sudden my course rigor hadn't been good enough. Can someone explain what changed as well as whether or not I should even continue to rely on CV for these things? Thank you.

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.
So to give an answer Cameron is correct in all regards but I've heard reports of a bug that sees no honor classes as the end of the world (it essentially tanks your rigor) so try adding 1 honor class to see if that fixes anything.
As for using collegevine it is 100% the best broad admissions site anywhere and while the chancing engine is wacky (gave someone 60% at a HYP school forgot which one) it is by far the best available as no other site factors in rigor much less extracurriculars.
Hope this help and please comment if youd like clarification as Id be happy to help!
