Hi there,
I have a question concerning the admit rates.
GSB's admit rate is claimed by Vertias Annual Report as 8%.
But, according to the GSB's web site, out of total ~7000 applicants, 370 were enrolled. Then, how would be the admit rate 8%.

amaterasu: Admit rate and yield rate are not the same. Admit rate refers to the number of people who were extended an offer of admission, while yield rate is the number of people among them who actually join/matriculate. Hope this helps. Are you applying? If so, which round?

whiplash: I beg to differ here. Say, they are 400 applicants admitted but from that ~ 350 were enrolled so, there would be a yield. But, what I want to know is, from what amount of a pool were this 400 applicants are admitted ? In Veritas report, yield is 77%, admit is 8%.
Also look at here, maybe this will clarify my question:
http://www.gsb.stanford.edu/about/facts.html
There are tables related to MBA enrollment. Total enrollment is 755, and the enrollment is 385. What is the admit rate then, there are two classes ?
Yeah, GSB is a great place I will apply definitely, but I do not know if I were able to make it happen to R2 without rushing the application, considering not already having taken GMAT and TOEFL. I do my best but, working full-time is where I fall short. And also trying to learn more about the schools is really really more time consuming than I have ever imagined.
