are there stats for admitted student Gmat score distribution for top schools?
like.. how many people do each of these groups have: 600 - 650, 650-700, 700-750?
I know that the stats won't matter much because the lower score gmat peeps most likely make it up in WE or something...but o well, Im just trying to get a feel for it.

Look at kellogg's class profile.. There is also a spreadsheet available that you can use to estimate their acceptances by ranges.

GMAT Distribution UP TO 650 -------650 - 690 ----700 - 740----- 750-800
Enrolled Students -----------6%--------22%---------50%------------22%

Total Applicants ------------13%-------25%----------46%----------- 16%

Average Score 712

If you search there was a pretty detailed evaluation of Kellogg's numbers done a few years ago by a few posters. You can assume that people with lower gmats are much more likely to attend so their admission rate is even worse than you would think...while people with very high gmats are more likely to get multiple admits to other top schools so their rate is higher than it appears.

nice one guys. I wonder if other schools has similar numbers..
So I guess it is kinda important to break into that 700 bracket.

That is so scarly! 800+ applicants with 750-800 scores yet only 75 enrolled.

what happened to those 725 people that had 750+ scores....

Actually with 750-800 is something like 130 enrolled.

If you assume that their yield rate for 750-800 was like 35%, that gives you close to 400 acceptances. Not bad.

This is my analysis for kellogg .. I got the stats from businessweek

APPLICANTS
Applicants who were accepted to the most recent class: 19 %
Admitted applicants who were interviewed: 100 %

APPLICANT POOL
Applications from women received: 29 %

CLASS PROFILE
Full-time students in newest entering class (2008-2009) that are:
Female: 36 %
International: 34 %

International Applicants = 43%
 US Applicants = 57%

Accepted International Applicants = 36%
 Accepted US Applicants = 64%

Acceptance Factor for US Applicants = 64/57 = 1.123
Acceptance Factor for International Applicants = 36/43 = 0.837

Women Applicants = 29%
Accepted Women Applicants = 36%
Acceptance Factor for Women Applicants = 36/29 = 1.241
Acceptance Factor for Male Applicants = 64/71 = 0.9014

Total Accepted Applicants = 5051*19/100 = 960

GMAT Distribution
UP TO 650 -------650 - 690 ----700 - 740----- 750-800
Enrolled Students -----------6%--------22%---------50%------------22%
Total Applicants ------------13%-------25%----------46%----------- 16%

Just considering Applicants with GMAT >= 750

Applicants (with GMAT >= 750) = 16% = (5051*16/100) = 808
Accepted Applicants (with GMAT >= 750) = 22*100/58 = 38% (Since Yield = 58%)
= 960* 38/100 = 365

Acceptance Rate (GMAT >= 750) = 365*100 /808 = 45%

Acceptance Rate for US applicants = 45* (Acceptance Factor for US Applicants = 1.123) = 50.535 %
Acceptance Rate for US women applicants = 50.535 * 1.241 = 62.7%
Acceptance Rate for US Male applicants = 50.535 * 0.9014 = 45.6%

Considering the yield is lower in people with higher GMAT .. the actual acceptance rate for GMAT > 750 might be 55% for US males and 75% for US females.

P.S: We all know that Internationals have a better acceptance rate but the stats for Internationals look artificially low because of the Indians who might be looking at 5% acceptance rate for GMAT > 750

Gave you +1 that's awesome analysis. I actually believe the yield for 750+ candidates to be way below 58% from reading around the boards.

I personally estimate it at 35%, based on nothing but assumptions. But granted it is 58% overall, and 660-690 into kellogg would be looking at close to 80% yield.

Anyone else?

Based on 35% Yield

Applicants (with GMAT >= 750) = 16% = (5051*16/100) = 808
Total Enrolled Applicants = 544
Enrolled Applicants with (>=750) = 22%*544 = 120
Assuming 35% yield = 120/35% =342

Acceptance Rate (GMAT >= 750) = 342*100 /808 = 42%

Acceptance Rate for US applicants = 42* (Acceptance Factor for US Applicants = 1.123) = 48 %
Acceptance Rate for US women applicants = 48 * 1.241 = 60%
Acceptance Rate for US Male applicants = 48 * 0.9014 = 43 %

43% for US males and 60% for US females.

Based on ADMISSION411.com Info (not vouching that it's correct)

From known results.
US applicants:
Accepted: 10/19 = 53%
Denied: 6/19 = 32%
W/L: 3/19 = 16%
