According to CNN, Admission Splash currently runs customized equations for about 1,500 schools that it developed using the admission data released by the schools.
However, do not be discouraged if you get a low rating for a particular school. “Although high school grade point average and standardized test scores are important indicators of academic achievement used in UCLA’s admissions review, they only tell part of the story” UCLA’s prospective student Web site states.
Admission Splash does not take essays into account, which is a pretty big part of the application process. So before you jump to conclusions from your results, you should still apply and wait for your real acceptance letter.
If you are applying right now, also consider the new widget on Facebook called College Planner. This lets prospective college students research schools and then apply to them without actually leaving their Facebook profiles. According to Cnet, you can also see which people on your friend list are interested in the same schools.
