Why does Emory have a higher acceptance rate than Barnard?
So I'm planning on applying to Barnard College and Emory University, but I was wondering why Emory has a higher acceptance rate than Barnard when Emory is ranked 21 in the U.S. and Barnard is ranked 27. Is it because Barnard has access to the resources of Columbia and it's located in Manhattan? Also, I'd like to major in chemistry, which I know Columbia has a better department in, so I am wondering if I am allowed to conduct research at Columbia instead of Barnard. I know they're financially and legally independent of each other and that Columbia and Barnard students share clubs, classes, libraries, and so on, but I'm unsure about research.4 replies
