Awesome question @pranhav16! Right now a reach school in our system is anywhere from an 8-27% chance while a hard target school is anywhere from a 27-50% chance. Does that help answer your question?

Yes, but it doesn't take into account recs or essays right? Or is it assuming our chances if we had average essays?
It currently doesn't account letter of recommendations or essays, correct.

Maybe the Calculator show probability even after considering the acceptance rate of that school if it is top tier. I am not sure about this.

I will just say- go and try, and also- be prepared. Do your best!
