Very interesting but I dont think the data corresponds to the current application year-seems like it was for the class matriculating in '07.

Really interesting to see the rise in number of applicants to PT MBA programs- and that could answer the rise in the number of GMAT takers.

Also, acceptace rate for a full time program = 49% and the number of applications per person = 4.1

Looking at the graphs it seems like the year that looks the most like this year that you can easily find stats for is 2002. A quick glance at the acceptance rates for back then MIT, GSB, Kellogg and the like all had acceptance rates in the low teens (13%ish). Harvard was 10% and Stanford a whopping 8%. Even elite schools that have had 30%+ acceptances recently (Duke and Ross) were in the high teens for acceptances.

Yields also were very strong back then. God I really hope this year is not that impossible. Though it will be good if schools continue to get harder in future years, that might bring back some of the prestige of the MBA.
