I've always thought that Stanford will accept some applicants that neither Y or H will take in order to increase their yield & due to their different emphasis in the admissions process. Thus they like to go for say the 3.98, 170 with work experience that Harvard or Yale might not, thus making it almost certain that those type of people will attend. Not positive on this of course.. but it seems that cross-admits between H and Y choose H more often. (Doesn't H have higher yield even with the huge class?)
Anyways what are your guys thoughts?
Yeah, I suppose the only thing I can really say with confidence is that Harvard cares more about numbers (edit: or is more likely to take someone with just good numbers and not much else) than Y or S (out of necessity due to class size).
But Yale has a higher yield. Harvard's is like 68% and Yale's is around 78%. Stanford's is 46%.
