    Learning Your Chances of Being Accepted by the Colleges and Universities You Had Selected

Once you select a dozen or more colleges that fit your criteria, the question arises as to your chances of being accepted by the schools that you had selected. Each school provides ample statistics on their undergraduate admissions, including the acceptance rates, statistical distributions on SAT, ACT and GPA's of students who were accepted in prior years. Colleges and universities also publish information on the ethnic and geographical distribution of their undergraduates. However. all this statistics is not not helpful in determining your chances of getting accepted by a particular college or university. For example, if all your SAT scores and your GPA are near the median of or a particular college, are you likely to be accepted ? In most case, the statistics provive only a ball park idea of the chances of being accepted. Colleges and universities generally use a holistic approach for determing whether to accept an applicant. In addition, to test scores and other quantitative measures, they consider personal characteristics and aqchievemnts of applicants, including their athletic achievemnts, their awards, their leadership positions and their backgrounds. School placed different weights on the factors which makes the determination of chances of admission even more difficullt to predict. This is where Go4Ivy can help.

Go4Ivy has developed an algorithm for each college and university on our website, which calculates the chances of admission based on all factors that schools use to make their decisions.  We continouly improve and update our algorithms based on changes in school's approaches, schools' statistics and past accuracy of our predictions. In short, Go4Ivy uses advanced statistical analysis and decades of admissions expertise to boil down the complexities of the college admissions process to one, easy-to-interpret parameter: your percentage chance of getting into to a college or a university
