How much does Vandy look at class rank?
Hi everyone! I'm a rising junior, so maybe it's a little early for me to be wondering, but does anyone know how much Vanderbilt looks at class rank? My school just stopped ranking us at the end of this past year, and I was on Parchment.com playing with their "See Your Chances" feature. When I typed in all my stats, it chanced me as 29%. I was using the "What if?" feature, and plugged in my class rank as top 1%, which is true. My new chances were at 48%, which, granted, is still not great, but an almost 20% jump? Just from one input?
So I'm wondering, does the fact that my school stopped ranking really hurt my chances that much? Or is Parchment just being dramatic? The other schools I was doing this for didn't change my chances at all.
Thanks so much!
PS: I don't know if this matters, but in case it does, I think my original chances were so low because I was using my PSAT scores to predict for ACT/SAT. Those scores will almost certainly improve once I actually take the tests when school starts.
