As a young applicant I certainly don't feel that way. I guess it's a tough year and somebody has to loose for others to win.

So by my (rough) calculations. It seems as though 35%-40% of round 1 interviewees will ultimately be offered admission.

Am I way off? Anyone? Comments?

I have a friend who attended a Wharton session on Tuesday and the adcom mentioned that for R1 they would extend 1,000 interview invitation and would offer admission to 400 students. I was not there but that's what I was told.

Interesting. So if this is true, and Wharton interviews roughly 45% of its pool, they received a total of 2222 applications for R1.

40%....I'll take those odds.

Here's to GMATClub beating that figure as well!

Do we know for sure that they received 2222?

That would mean a round one acceptance rate of 18% which sounds about right.

Sorry, jjright. Didn't read your post carefully. My head is spinning from the market.

Does anyone think 2222 sounds a little on the low side?

It does seem low for a year like this one. but you are assuming that they invited 45% which may be too high.

I will take these 40% odds for sure.

They receive about 7000-7500 apps a year so that sounds right figure 4000 for rd 2 and 1000 or so around 3

If they have 800 spots per year, there seems to be a big difference between R1 and R2 in terms of acceptance rate. If we take your numbers.

Don't forget WLs...Last year on GMAT club 2 got WLd whereas 3 got straight up accepted. It's definitely a realistic outcome for many. Wouldn't surprise me if the first round breakdown(post interview) went 40% accepted 10% WL 50% ding.

and be it that or just 40/60, i'll definitely take those odds. Just think, you'll have a better shot of getting into Wharton than the best baseball players in the game do of getting a hit :) (my apologies for the non-baseball fans in the group)

Good point. Do you know how corrolated are acceptance to all top schools? Do people usually get into all their schools or none (e.g if you get into HBS or Stanford, does it mean all the others are shoe-in) It does not seem so but just wanted to get your take on that.

I personally have never heard of anyone who got into HBS not getting into the vast majority of their other schools. For example, HBS's yield rate is 89%, vs Sloan's which is 66%. I'll venture that a good chunk of that 34% of those accepted into Sloan but didn't matriculate have turned it down for HBS.

Some other notable yield rates (all from BW):
Columbia: 77%
Ross: 70%
Wharton: 67%
Kellogg: 57%
Stern: 57%
Haas: 53%

Therefore my take is that there's definitely a big overlap, as Sloan, Stern, Haas and Kellogg(arguably) all have to deal with a higher-ranked behemoth in their immediate vicinity, and have their yield rates notably affected by it. Ross on the other hand is (barely) ranked below at least 3 of those schools by many people yet has a much higher yield rate. That's gotta have something to do with having less 'overlapping' applicants than these other schools.
