What is Cialfo Likelihood and Application Interest?

How is this calculated?

How to set it up

Cialfo offers opportunities for students and counselors researching schools to state the Likelihood of a possible acceptance into a university. We are also offering a Cialfo Likelihood and have added an Application Interest of your students. This can be particularly helpful to students who need to have a starting point of where they'd like to apply and to improve decision making during the applications process.

Cialfo Likelihood and Application Interest are housed in the My List section of a student's profile.

**What is Cialfo Likelihood and Application Interest?**

**Cialfo Likelihood**

Cialfo will help predict the likelihood of a possible acceptance into a university.

Fields returned based on student / school's information:

**Not Enough Data**: If Cialfo does not have enough student data to make an assessment, we show**Not Enough Data**. As students or counselors add in test scores and grades we can better predict chance of admission**Far Reach**: We estimate that the student has between 0 to 5% chance of being admitted.**Reach**: We estimate that the student has between 5% to 20% chance of being admitted.**Target**: We estimate that the student has between 20% to 75% chance of being admitted.**Likely**: We estimate that the student has between 75% to 100% chance of being admitted.

**Application Interest **

Cialfo will help predict and identify how likely your students will be interested in applying to a specific university.

Fields returned based on student / school's information:

For each university in a student's My List section, Cialfo will return 1 of 5 values (seen below), indicating a student's possible interest in applying to a given university:

Least Interest (0-20% chance of applying)

Slight Interest (20-40% chance of applying)

Moderate Interest (40-60% chance of applying)

Interested (60-80% chance of applying)

Very Interested (80-100% chance of applying)

This works similarly to our previous Likelihood & College Fit calculator where it was only applicable to US schools.

However, the algorithm has been updated to be **application/university-specific** to be more inclusive and helpful for a greater number of students! This means that the Cialfo Likelihood and Application Interest will show *regardless* of the university's country!

**How are Cialfo Likelihood and Application Interest calculated?**

Cialfo Likelihood and Application Interest take the below into consideration through our internal algorithm:

**Student Attributes:**How similar a student is to students who have applied to this university or universities like the one being searched**University Attributes:**How similar the university is to universities that students like this apply to**Actions****done on the platform**: Actions done by the student or done on the studentâ€™s behalf by counselors or the studentâ€™s guardian that indicate that the student is likely to apply to a given university.
