Regarding the acceptance rate of women [#permalink] New post 16 Mar 2006, 08:46
Hi Paul,

How are you? I hope all is well with you. Thanks for bringing so many informative information to the forum.

I have a question regarding the class size and acceptance rate of women in b-school. I am a Asian-American female.
Schools generally show that the acceptance rate of women is around 20%/25%. So, I assume this rate is for both domestric and international female admitted applicant. Will I be competed against the pool of domestric applicants as well as the pool of international female applicants?

Please advise.
Thanks.

Omomo,

Yes, the rates you refer to are overall rates, including both domestic and international female applicants. International female applicants therefore have a slight advantage over domestic female applicants in that they can use both their gender and their international profile to set themselves apart from other applicants (assuming that they are not from an international demographic that schools see a great deal of, such as India). But each applicant competes against the *entire* applicant pool. Schools don't evaluate an international female applicant only against other international female applicants. They are compared against everyone else--it's just that they have certain built-in advantages being from groups less commonly represented among B-school students.

Hope this answered your question.
