We’re excited to announce the BETA launch of a new site feature developed in partnership with CollegeLab.org. It is an AI-powered admissions predictor, so students can calculate their chances for over 500+ schools with the most selective admissions right here on CC, for free!
You can read more about the feature here, and we’ve also compiled a few FAQs below:
Why is this feature being launched?
Over the years, a frequent user request has been for a data-driven chancing calculator. So when the opportunity to partner with CollegeLab arose, we knew this would be something our users would like to have. CC is committed to helping students and their families make better, more informed decisions on the path to college. Alongside the college guidance and insightful community discussions that already exist on CC, we hope the AI Admissions Predictor can be another tool used to help families along their journey.
Is it free?
Yes! The AI Admissions Predictor integrated on College Confidential is completely free for our community members. It leverages 4 of 12 data points in CollegeLab’s algorithm to allow students to see predictions for more than 500 selective colleges.
Will this replace the CC Chance Me threads?
Nope! The unique insight the community provides in those threads is invaluable, and will always be a part of CC. In fact, we are working on ways to improve and expand on our CC Chance Me discussions. The AI Admissions Predictor is intended to give students a quick way to see how they stack up for the schools they’re interested in. We hope that the prediction scores can complement the community-driven CC Chance Me discussions with a data-driven look at admissions predictions.
