Does anyone now what the Cornell University School of Engineering ED Acceptance rate would be? :)

    Approximately 30% I think. Not sure though.

    I feel like I read that figure somewhere but can't find it now. 34% of the Engineering class of 2017 was filled by ED enrollees (http://www.engineering.cornell.edu/admissions/undergraduate/why_cornell/class_profiles.cfm) and 29.7% of that class was admitted ED university-wide, but those figures alone do not tell you what % of the Eng applicants were admitted via ED.

    The university admitted 27.7% of ED applicants this past December for the class of 2018. Again, another stat that does not answer your question. Also, the M & F admit rates vary widely: 10.7% M & 28% F for the class that was admitted last year.

    CT1417 - When you said "Also, the M & F admit rates vary widely: 10.7% M & 28% F for the class that was admitted last year." were you talking about the SEAS or the university as a whole?

    SEAS? I was addressing Engineering for the class that entered this fall or was admitted last year. Blended rate of ED & RD by gender for Engineering. The M/F admit rates at the other six colleges are much closer to each other.

    SEAS is Columbia's School of Engineering and Applied Science. Cornell is CoE.

    Ah, thanks old fort! Perhaps poster is considering both universities. My stats were for Cornell Engineering.

    Not really important, but just wanted to say: SEAS does stand for School of Engineering and Applied Science and is used by many schools, not just Columbia. It is actually fairly common for universities to name their engineering colleges/schools SEAS. There's Penn SEAS, Princeton SEAS, Harvard SEAS, Yale SEAS, UVa SEAS, UCLA SEAS, Northwestern SEAS, GWU SEAS, etc.

    But not for Cornell. When someone refers to SEAS, I immediate think of Columbia.
