I was reviewing R1 stats on the first page of this thread. Is it correct that we have seen less than 12% admit rate on Gmatclub for Wharton this year (15/117)? Last year's was 20%... Just confirming if this page is up-to-date.
I read earlier that there was an unusually high number of waitlists in R1. Perhaps thats what skewed the number?
You're forgetting the 5 above the admits who are both admits AND are matriculating--so it's a total of 20 admits, not 15.
I think Wharton R1 for 2011 was very abnormal for GMAT Club in terms of the size of the waitlist, but I don't know if our sample size and peculiarities (IE: lurkers) don't make this sort of abnormality entirely possible while the stats for the general applicant population are entirely normal.
In general a smaller number goes into the list before rounds. At interview time those who get invites are more likely to add themselves in than those who don't. At final results time, admits and waitlisters are more likely to add their name than dings. Following that, lurkers only add their stats if they got in. So with time, the stats get skewed towards admits and waitlisters. The percent of those vs denied or total is hard to judge because people with dings are much less likely to self-report. During announcement time, only 5-10 or so active GMAT Clubers actually reported admits. Some people become active only after they get in or get waitlisted.
