    How many students are being admitted this year?

    Sponsored Ad:
    For those who have been accepted or interviewed, how many students are being admitted in the program? I wonder how bad it will be with budget cuts and all.

    I'm interested in finance, but you can post info about your own program.

    It depends on the school and the program. For marketing, Cornell admitted 1, Wharton admitted 8 (hope to yield 4-5), Chicago admitted 6, Emory will admit 3 at most, etc. The variation is large.

    Most programs are cutting back, although to different degrees. Programs that in a normal year would take 3 students appear to be taking 1-2. (Or none, depending on how poorly the state budget has been managed).

    Bad luck for those of us applying this year. Next year may be even worse.

    faculty hiring freezes might keep the admit numbers up, inspite of overall funding cuts (caution: unbridled speculation :P )

    That's true! Grad students are much cheaper to hire to teach classes than professors...

    and some universities try to seize the opportunity to attract higher rank student such as UC San Diego, which opened this year, or Tulane, which opened more slots
