Better chances applying through Quest Bridge?

So I have heard that you have a better chance of getting into a college if applying through Quest Bridge, but I am not sure about the validity about this rumor.

I know it's probably impossible to corroborate this, but does anyone have some statistics of finalists specific to certain colleges? I'm just really curious.

    When my son and I visited Columbia in NYC, the admisisons officer said they had 13 QB students this past year.

    Yeah, but out of how many who applied? ^

    I had the same concern... I saw an article about 22 students being accepted to Yale through questbridge, but then it said that usually 1,000 questbridge students apply... (although I was a little wary on that number)

    If that's true though, that means only a 2.2 acceptance rate!? Isn't the chance higher if you apply scea? O.o
