There's this program which supposendly calculates your % chance at certain colleges (more if you register.)

Regardless, have any of you had experience with the program? Was it accurate in your acceptance with the particular college? I'm a bit wary of the results after I've put in my information.

Here's the program:

That program is a piece of ••••. Look on pr.damnsw.net. Im using people's stats from last year and testing their chances. 1 girl has a 2% chance at Amherst (according to this), yet she is currently going to Amherst... nearly for free i might add.

WTF? According to this, I have a 78% at Duke but a 18% at Caltech... didn't know the latter was that much harder to get in :-/

Culovv's right, don't trust programs to test chances :p

This thing is ridiculous...I'm too embarrassed to say how high my chances at schools like MIT or Harvard

97% at Berkeley... *riight*...
Maybe the mods'll delete this thing before anyone else wastes their time with it.
