How do admissions officers accept a perfect amount of students each year?
At colleges like Harvard, admissions officers have to admit like 3k students out of 55k applicants or so.... but how do they always end up with the perfect number? Do they say, out of the next 20 applications we say we'll pick one or do they just wing it until they have to start thinking about it? I imagine that wouldn't work so well. I know that ED schools use ED as an admissions strategy and there are regional officers that review then take them to the final admissions table but the question still stands.... how do they really give people an equal chance, especially when they have to think about diversity?5 replies
