How accurate are these chance me calculators? I see lots of them including prepscholar but wonder if it makes any sense to rely on these?

These are some good points. As you can see from some posts below and in Eduniverse we avoid speculating on students' chances of getting into a particular school. And as per Jason's comment it is important to understand college's average SAT/GPA etc (and we are about to publish some relevant data for a list of schools).

The best approach is trying to put together a good list of colleges including some safety schools that fits your profile.

And if you like to look at the numbers here is a good stats problem for you which highlights an importance of having a good mix of schools
