2006 and 2007 Yield for Top 15 Schools [#permalink]

Just reposting this in its own thread so I can put it in the Knowledge Vault:
For your information, 2006 BW Rankings. Chicago is the only top 15 school that doesn't report the yield... but the guess is roughly 65%
http://www.businessweek.com/bschools/06/full_time.htm 2006 Stats: Ultra-Elites: HBS: 91% Stan: 79% Wharton: **69%** (probably because anyone who applies there usually applies to H/S) Chicago: 65% (estimate) Kellogg: 56% MIT: 62% Columbia: 79%! (probably because of Early Decision)
I respectfully disagree regarding Chicago's yield that year...if they didn't disclose it, that means it was reaaaallly low and too ugly to be made public. I would imagine low 50's or, god forbid, even 40's.
This doesn't say anything about the quality of the school or the admitted students, which i'm sure is top notch. Just probably a bad year and bad luck. Personally I know a ton of people who chose other schools over Chicago that year, probably just by coincidence. That's the nature of yield, you can't always predict it 100%.
I think I got the 65% off some consultant's site, but I can't find it again... I know that Chicago generally does not release their admissions numbers in the past few years... so if anyone has any idea, let us know. _________________
