Hands Down->This is one of the most useful posts on the Forum.
The fact that it covers all Top-50 schools is tremendous.
Great Analysis.Thanks
Narenn
I will be the first one to let the Kudos Fly.

I have one concern though.Are these acceptance rate the new one's i.e the latest ?
Has Krannert's overall Acceptance rate dropped to 13%??
How can it fall from 36% to 13% within a span of one year?

Why are they different from the one's mentioned in the Original Ranking's Post in here -> https://gmatclub.com/forum/all-2015-mba ... 99812.html
Please Update the same on the main Ranking's page too

Few Shockers =>
WP Carey has NO INDIANS.
We all know -> The only reason it is boosting in the rankings is because of the FREE MBA tag.
Who wouldn't love a FREE MBA right ?
NO Fees = Greater number of Applications=Low Acceptance Rate=> Better Ranking.
In other words, they are just gaming the whole Ranking's system in place and are operating in BAD faith to say the least.

And to worsen it up -> It will keep on rising in its rankings as the inflation increases which is sick.ASU isn't IVEY.
Its a mediocre university at best.

The biggest surprise to me are UW Madison and Carlson.They only take 6% Indians which is crazy.
One of the Adcoms I met from Carlson was so excited about the Indian Pool. DISHEARTENING!!

The biggest positive out of this is BYU.
Going by the history of the school and its parent university, it is great to see them accepting everyone with open arms.

Thanks Narenn. This was awesome. My Kudos to you.

Just one question - does this mean HBS doesn't accept Indians at all generally? Anyone knows the reason for this?

Thanks Stonecold! The acceptances rates mentioned in the analysis are of GMATClub users, not school's official figures. Moreover in this survey we have considered applicants who applied between 2012 and 2017 intakes, so these figures are average of last 5 years acceptance rates.

I would not say HBS doesn't accept Indians at all but the chances are very low due to extremely fierce competition. I know a handful of Indian GMATClub users who have been accepted to HBS but their application records did not reflect in this analysis probably because either they have not shown HBS on their profile or the profile status is not updated

Great information !!

Are there any reasons as such for the acceptance rates that vary from school to school?
Also it would be great if a similar study could be done on other schools in Europe, UK, and Asia.

Thanks

Acceptance rate depends on available spots and volume of applications, which vary from school to school, so do the acceptance rates.

We are going to analyse other schools in future, European and Canadian programs specifically.

Hi Narenn - does this analysis apply to Indian Americans (born in the US), Indians native to India, or both?

Thanks!

This is for people who are applying from India. As to the Indians born/raised/living in the US, it will likely be a very different situation depending on where on that spectrum you fall.

Looking forward to the Analysis for European and Canadian universities.

Yup... as said in the explanation, acceptance rate of Indians at HBS is not exactly 0% but it's extremely low - between 0% - 1%.

Thanks for the comment. Good luck for your applications this season.

This information is very beneficial for applicants like me.
