This is better to be answered by the people at 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

Well, what’s the formula exactly? Like Total Chance=Sat/Satmax+gpa/gpamax*acceptance rate smth like tgat
Doubt the site that calculates college chances would give you their formula for college chances...that's one of their primary offerings.
@Daryn I have no clue and that’s IP and they wouldn’t want to share it to protect thier website.
Also it’s vastly more complicated than that as it factors in majors extracurriculars residency et cetera. But it is the most accurate chancing program that I know of.
