Confused about intake size [#permalink] New post 16 Sep 2009, 19:14
Hi all,

Please take a look at this data from BW profile page for Fuqua as an example:

Application (A) - 3122
Selectivity (S) - 30%
Yield (Y) - 46%


If you do the math (A*S*Y), the intake size comes to about 431. But BW reports full-time enrollment as 878, which is roughly double the result I just mentioned.

Now Fuqua website mentions their class size as 434, which is consistent with the math.

This same pattern emerges for all 2-year programs, but not for 1-year ones. So I'm guessing the BW data about enrollment is actually the total number of students in the program at any time (first year + second year), and not the intake size.
Could someone please confirm if that's right?

Thanks.

hi

the total enrollment refers to both 1st and 2nd year students (and part time and phd, as far as i can tell). i can confirm this based on the HBS student body, which is around 1900 according to BW, but the 1st year total was around 940.
