This is better to be answered by the people at support@collegevine.com for a ivy league school and others collegevine has a good idea about the average ECs, test scores and gpa among other data points then with a formula they use that data to compare your profile to the schools average then they derive a percentage chance from there.

Hope this helps and feel to ask for clarification

Hi there! We aren't able to tell you our "secret formula" for chancing, but if you have questions about your personal chances, you can email us at support@collegevine.com, or attend one of our profile review livestreams. Hope this helps!
