We use more than 200 data points about you and your target college. Our unique algorithm takes many factors into account, including your grades and test scores, the academic rigor of your high school curriculum, your extracurricular activities, personal details, and just about everything else in your profile. We also consider numerous factors about the college, including the grades and scores of students who have been admitted in the past, the school's selectivity, the gender and ethnic makeup of the school, and others. We use data from multiple government and private sources, plus information provided by the schools themselves.
For best results, make sure you fill out your Cappex profile accurately and completely. A very wide orange bar means that we don't have enough information to give you an accurate rating. (Make sure your entire profile is filled out, especially your test scores and GPA.) A very narrow orange bar means that the calculator has enough information, and our estimate of your chances of getting in is reliable for the vast majority of cases. Of course there are always exceptions - the odds are never 100%, and we don't guarantee you will get into any college. Your individual circumstances and qualifications may also qualify you for admission in situations where someone of comparable standing will be rejected.
Use the Calculator like you would any other source — as a tool to help you plan and prioritize your college search. College is an important decision, so use the Calculator to provide one piece of the puzzle. Always get advice from high school counselors, admissions representatives, parents and others in your college search - people who know you better than any computer can.
