Average # of T10 Acceptances?

Postby miamiman » Tue Jan 26, 2010 10:33 pm

If you look at TLS -- and I suppose LSN -- you'd get the impression that if you get into one T10, you're bound to get into several. Does anyone know roughly what the average number of T10 acceptances is / applicant? I imagine there is bad empirical data on this but , perhaps, someone has run an analysis on LSN?

Most applicants don't get accepted by a T10, so the average is going to be way under 1...it's probably under 0.1

If you are trying to find the average number of T10 acceptances for those who get into at least one T10, it's going to depend on how many top applicants apply to all or most of the schools in the T10. Some applicants who could get into all ten just apply to three or four.

True, I phrased the original question poorly. Assuming the applicant applies to all T10s and gains acceptance to AT LEAST 1, what is the average number of T10s the applicant is admitted to.

There is definitely no way to know this. If you put a gun to my head I'd say 2.5, but that number is not backed up by even a remotely reasonable rationale.

^^^Agreed. Not to mention those that apply early decision are forced to withdraw from other schools. So that skews the average # of acceptances as well.

But generally speaking I would assume that if your best acceptance is one of HYS then you would probably get accepted to almost all the schools in the tiers below it. Same with the CCN tier and the MVPB tier respectively. Berkeley is a strange exception in that it seems to weight GPA higher than the other schools do, so admits to the CCN tier don't necessarily translate into an admission at Berkeley. Moreover, this doesn't account for yield protection. It isn't that uncommon for someone who gets into Columbia to get waitlisted at Virginia or Penn.

But yea, there just isn't any way to really know for sure.

Just add a poll and get a TLS skewed sample.

There are actually 12 t10s if you consider that there are three schools tied for 10th, so remember to incorporate that fact when calculating your data.

I applied to 10 of the 12--8 admitted, 2 pending.

This is really strange question that will not yield anything close to useful information.

That goes for about half of the questions posed on TLS...
