    Me too, but there's no way for anyone to know that.

    Re: Interesting statistics

    So does this mean on average, 17 percent of applications are accepted. If so, which colleges are likely to have acceptance rates around this mean?

    Re: Interesting statistics

    A sizeable portion of applicants apply to more than 5 schools each year. If we were to assume that an applicant receives 1.5 offers on average (very conservative), the acceptance rate would fall to approximately 9%, which is in line with what most departments report; approximately 10% acceptance rate. Obviously the top schools will have markedly lower acceptance rates due to the sheer amount of applications they receive.

    Re: Interesting statistics

    Universities generally report how many applications they receive and the size of their entering class. They rarely report how many offers they make.

    But here is the info that UCLA provides:
    Generally we receive almost 700 applications per application cycle. We typically admit 100 to 120 applicants, and enroll approximately 25 students.

    I think also NYU and Columbia gives these statistics approximately. But yes majority of the schools do not share such numbers.

    Good point. NYU says:
    Over the last two years, we have averaged over 900 applicants per year. We take 18-20. We make between 45 and 50 offers.

    UW-Madison has slightly more than 500 applications each year, and in the past three years has admitted between 93 and 146 students to achieve an entering class of 25-30.

    Is this real?! Especially 146 seemed to be extremely high number!
