    @zjh828266, probably not. It may seem that way from the posts on here, but this is really not a representative sample. There are a huge number of applicants and admitted students who don't contribute to CC. Also, it is not clear that all of the acceptances have gone out. So, we won't really know the acceptance rates (CP as a whole and the individual colleges) until everyone who applied has been notified of their decision.

    I would respectfully disagree with @berkeleymom4. They received more applicants this year for the same number of slots, over 57,000. By definition, at least average across the whole school, acceptance rates will be lower.
