Acceptability of international students / engineers etc. [#permalink]

Hi everyone,

I am planning to apply this year. I have been looking up the web in the past couple of months to find a college finds my profile desirable.

eg. I was able to figure out for example that Haas in 2002 had overall acceptability of 12%, but it was only 7% for international students. In a separate discussion (on a different page) chairman of admissions was quoted saying that they rejected 75% of students with scores over 750 in 2004.

I am looking for pointers for such information for following schools .
Standford, Harvard, Chicago, Kellogs,Wharton, Haas.

I shall be obliged for any pointers people give - In response I will be happy to post a summary of my findings.

Thanks,

I have looked at the pages you pointed me to. While these are quite astute in recommendations, I am looking for applicant profiles. Most schools publish the distribution of the class (like International 30%, women 32% etc.). I am looking for applicant distribution - how many of the applications were from International students, how many from people with scores between say 700-740, how many were International. This will give me an idea on acceptability on different parameters.

Is such information available ? I have been able to glean bits and pieces from interviews of admissions committe members from here and there but nothing substantial.

They are usually very reluctant to give out information about applicant profiles. You can find some occasionally in MBA admissions chat transcripts but they are just tidbits here and there. sorry I can't be of more help.

Good luck!
