Cialfo offers two opportunities for students and counselors researching schools to state the Likelihood of a possible acceptance into a university. One way is a Cialfo generated algorithm called the College Fit Calculator and other is Counselor Recommendation of likelihood.
The Reach/Target/Likely (RTL) is an in-built algorithm that categorizes top US colleges based off a number of popular majors into Reach, Target, Likely categories. The algorithm takes into account a combination of factors, which includes School grades, SAT/ACT test scores, and the student’s Extra Curricular Activities profile. The RTL estimate function serves to only assist the students in sorting out the school list and look for their best-fit colleges. The function activates after selecting a major (Closest to what you are looking for) and clicking on the Estimate button.
Please note: If you do not see the Likelihood estimate, it may have been switched off by your counselor.
The two likelihoods can be compared side by side. The one listed in yellow is the Cialfo algorithm while the red one is the Counselor recommended likelihood.
In addition, Likelihood can be determine in approximately 250 schools in the US and UK and mainly reserved for top ranked schools.
