2010 Acceptance Rates

<p>2010</a> Admissions Tally - The Choice Blog - NYTimes.com</p>

<p>Northeastern 38%</p>

<p>Boston University 58%</p>

<p>Looking forward to seeing the USNews rankings on 8/17.</p>

<p>Awesome find TomSr and I will definitely be looking forward to that ranking too, even though I don't think much of their system anyway</p>

<p>really?? sweeet.
im hopeful</p>

<p>Didn't it go up? I thought it was like 33% or 35% last year.</p>

<p>2008 35%
2009 41%
2010 38%</p>

<p>Is there any way to figure out the transfer admission rate?</p>

<p>the transfer acceptance and admission rates are in the annual factbooks which are available online; here is a link to the 2009-2010 factbook - haven't done the math but it looks like they accept roughly 45% of applicants to come up with about a 45% yield from those accepted (I think their Admissions page says they enroll about 550 transfer students each yr):</p>

<p>Ah, thanks for the post!</p>

<p>TheRippa and other fall applicants for NEU and elsewhere - Just a warning on comparing admit rates. A lot can have to do with student self-selection (not applying with overly low stats), ease of common app, etc etc. So don't re;u that kind of stat give you confidence or discouragement.</p>

<p>Naviance and MyChances give a better indication by scattergram, but even that data is not a perfect guage. </p>

<p>Despite all I said above, I do think Tom's link is interesting stuff! Especially surprised by the NEU vs BU delta.</p>

<p>That Boston U number is insane; not the % necessarily but the fact that they accept 22,000 kids for how many spots?.....they would be in big trouble if their yield ever increased for some reason......</p>

<p>Well, I'm actually a transfer Spring applicant, not sure if that makes a huge difference.</p>

<p>Im actually looking forward to the new rankings too. I will be an entering freshman this fall and its annoying to see certain schools ranked higher than NU when in reality, should be ranked lower. It would be awesome to see NU move up into the 60s in the new rankings.</p>

<p>I think its ranked 80th for 2010</p>

<p>just kidding. wikipedia is lying to me</p>

<p>you have to wait for the 18th for that number</p>

<p>I'm a business student so all that matters to me is the business ranking</p>

<p>yeah i went to Usnews site............ and realized i & wiki were wrong.</p>
