The number I've been quoted by Medill admins over the past few years has been in the 15% range. I have never seen numbers in print. I'll add, though, that I personally believe admit rates predict admission difficulty much less well than standardized test scores. In some cases they reflect popularity du jour, notoriety du jour, or indundate my mailbox with glossy flyers jour after jour.
As far as later transfering to WCAS (or Comm or Ed or that matter), as often discussed on CC, no difficulty, easily done.
