How do we calculate matches or fit scores?

After answering the questions on your match profile you will receive college matches. 

Matches are based on your answers to questions on your academic performance and test scores, your preferred majors, your preferred location and campus size, and your finances.

If indicated, we will also include scores on veteran fit and/or sports fit.

The quality ranking of a school is also considered but is the last priority unless you have not filled out any of the questions.
