    Did they talk about the admission rates for this year? They don't include their common data set on their website and the info they do show does not include admit rates.

    @suzyQ7 actually I do not remember them mentioning any numbers.

    @suzyQ7 The acceptance rate this year was close to 35%, Average SAT and ACT were 1350 and 29. Spoke to an admissions officer at an event.

    At their Accepted Students Day at our regional event, Director of Admissions mentioned they had over 9,400 applications for 1,000 spots. They read each app 3x. Based on those stats, acceptance rates are more along the lines of 10-11% Yikes!

    That's not how you calculate admission rate. That calculation assumes that everyone they accepted will attend which is never the case. The calculation is number of students they accepted / 9400.

    Agree with @suzyQ7. Bentley's admission rate appears to be a bit above 40% (Fall 2016) from what I saw.

    Anyone know the stats to get off the waitlist, and when they send decisions?
