    ^^^ Why would they?

    Most oxford students have lower standarized test scores than Emory students. So if Sat scores/acts scores are important, you should see more Emory College kids getting accepted than Oxford students.

    Here's the truth:

    About 90% of those that apply to the b-school get in. That's not because it's not selective (it is). It's just that most students who wouldn't have gotten in if they applied, decided they're no longer interested in business after having taken the pre-reqs. So the pre-reqs do a good job of seeing who's ACTUALLY seriously interested in business and who's not. If after taking the pre-reqs you want to enter the b-school, you pretty much can.

    "easy" and "difficult" are so relative and anecdotal....

    Your high school experience is not indicative either because the range of difficulty for HS curriculum is infinite.

    As IC said, if you want to get in you should be able to cut it. Worst case scenario, if you don't make it, then you can always go for the econ major, which also has great placement.
