My D got accepted to LMU's School of Film and Television. She is very happy.
I am a little bit surprised.
The acceptance letter says "Just to give you an idea of the kind of accomplishment your acceptance represents, this year over 11,000 good students are applying for 1,250 places in the freshman class."
I was under impression that LMU's acceptance rate was around 50%, at least that's what collegeboard says: "Percent applicants admitted: 53%"
11,000 applicants for 1,250 places is much more competitive than 53%, it looks like acceptance rate for a very selective university.
What's going on? Any explanations?
