I enjoy analyzing stats. I'm applying for round 3 so I might just be making them biased towards me. So here's an example and I'd like an explanation:

This is just hypothetical.... There are 750 applicants to Wharton. 128 claim to have been admitted. It claims there have been 430 submitted applications. 390 are under the category "Unknown Final Decision" Are the people who fall under the category "Unknown Final Decision" usually people who have been denied and don't feel like updating their status or is it that those are people that could have been admitted but didn't update their status. The percentages that are posted for admitted I think need a little more in depth analysis than the creator of the site realizes. If 100/700 have been admitted but 350 of those 700 haven't bothered to update their status past "Researching or writing Essays" then these admitted stats are higher... unless those that fall in the category Unknown Final Decision are the dinged that don't have the motivation to update the status

Noticed this thread only today. People with unknown final decisions are those who never updated their application status after adding the school on GMAT Club profile. We don't know whether they got admitted or denied; It's even possible that they didn't apply. About the percentage figures of admits, I agree that sometimes these figures don't show us the true picture of admissions - specifically when the proportion of users with unknown final decisions is higher - but that's is expected when you base your analysis on self-reported data.
