    @CornellAEMplease So show me the stats "out there". I have yet to see anything with those numbers for Dyson, and in fact I actually called admissions and they said that the business program is their most competitive application pool. And your username gives you no authority or any more knowledge on the matter lmao

    Good point. I didn't realize your name had AEM in it. My apologies. Please notify Dyson that they are misleading prospective applicants with the following data. We owe you a debt of gratitude for your incredible insight, Mr. AEM.

    One last point, if you are stating the transfer acceptance rate into AEM is 25% (which is grossly high) you must also eliminate transfer option students from that mix.
  • terr24lrterr24lr Registered User Posts: 226 Junior Member
    Yeah 15-25% for AEM doesn't sound right. If I had to guess I would say anywhere between 5-8% but hopefully someone can pull up some verified stats of AEM transfer rates

    hey guys, i called aem a few weeks ago. They said that the transfer rate is only around 7 percent. :)
    Not sure if they got it right but, i sure do hope the 15-25 is real! fingers crossed! :D

    @nubes24 Hey! I'm an asian international student, too! I think you have a really good chance of getting in! Cornell doesnt require SAT scores but if you send them in i think it will help quite a lot cuz you scored really well! Cornell admissions says that they take the essay pretty seriously, too! Hope you get in!!! ( I'm applying too! :D)
