Any reason why 'Tuck' is not there in the analysis?

Hi VikasVala

I somehow missed it from the charts but I have added it to the tables. Tuck has 57.56% chances of admission post-interview.

Hi,

Considering an average 25-30% acceptance rate, except for Sloan/HBS/GSB, BSchools are screening way more people based in their scores and applications rather than their interview skills.. confirming how much weightage BS put in GMAT for example

This is great data. Would love to see something like this for European schools.

Hey Nikhil Thanks for this data analysis and the charts. Was wondering if you could share the the number of data points and their nationality spread? Also If possible to include data from further back like a 5 year period maybe? (Specifically interested to see data for post interview stats for INSEAD because I wonder why it is so high being a a highly sought after school for MBA. (Is it because of major selection in the first stage itself?)
It would be easier to assess this hypothesis with more data if possible.

Thank you!

What are the chances of Admission after an Interview?

If you got an interview, chances of admission are already looking up, but invitations from different schools have different implications. We have analyzed our historical data of interviewed applicants to know the post-interview acceptance rates of previous GMAT Club members. What are your takeaways from this data?

Why is Ross and Fuqua both top 10 and top 10-20 with different stats? Also, do you have any more recent info? Thanks!
