The 2020 edition of College Kickstart adds a fourth selectivity category for schools admitting over 75% of applicants. Schools falling into this "Least Selective" category will be categorized as Targets or Likelies depending on the student's academic credentials. In addition, list grading has also been refined to allow for lists with high counts of likelies and targets without penalty.
