Admissions' Statistics

<p>Admissions' Statistics</p>

<p>Since this subject interests most posters, I'd like to create a "quasi official" list of the historical admissions' numbers for the Ivy League schools. </p>

<p>If you have numbers for 2005 and prior years, please post the information for YOUR school here. Make sure to quote the source of your information. At a later date, I will reduce the information into one comprehensive post. </p>

<p>Thank you.</p>

<p>All the numbers you could possibly want are right here:</p>

<p>26.1% overall admit rate this year!</p>

<p>41% accepted for c/o '09 ED, That information is in this thread already I believe. "By College" stats are not out yet. Expect stuff in the next few weeks, as the academic year starts in less than a month. </p>

<p>What do you mean "what do they forecast for "class of '10?" (HS seniors are class of '10 when it comes to admissions, not '06--that's for your HS graduation) What forecast # or statistic are you looking for?</p>

<p>class of '09 admit rates by school and overall SAT scores have been posted.</p>

<p><a href=""&gt;;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p><a href=""&gt;;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p>looks like SAT scores are lower this year. yield down. cornell's class size is just too large. greedy bastards. given the number of faculty, it should be more like 2000 instead of 3000. it's just ridiculous.</p>

<p>Transfer Student Admission Rates
1980 to 2005 total External Transfer Admission Statistics
<a href=""&gt;;/a>
By College Fall 2005: <a href=""&gt;;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p><a href="from%20page%204">quote</a> External transfers offer another option for maintaining a stable enrollment. The majority of external transfers to Cornell arrive as sophomores or juniors. It is important to note that Cornell has always had a tradition of enrolling transfer students, particularly in the Contract Colleges; however, Arts & Sciences also enrolls a significant number of new external transfers each fall. Cornell’s tradition in this regard sets us apart from our Ivy peers, some of whom enroll a much more modest number of external transfer students or none at all. These students add a rich dimension to the classroom experience and their contributions to the undergraduate life at Cornell are deep and varied. From Fall 1990 to Fall 2004, between 35 and 44 percent of all incoming external transfers have annually enrolled in Agriculture & Life Sciences. In Fall 1990, this amounted to 172 out of 434 external transfers (40 percent) and in Fall 2004, 210 out of 534 external transfers (39 percent). For the other colleges (seeFigure 5) the number of external transfers fluctuates from year to year. Regardless, thenumber of transfers into Arts & Sciences has ranged between 63 in Fall 2003 and 94 in Fall 2002 with 89 for Fall 2004. Industrial & Labor Relations has more than tripled their external transfers from 29 in Fall 1990 to 74 in Fall 2004. Engineering had a 75 percent increase and Hotel Administration a 19 percent increase in external transfers between Fall 1990 and Fall 2004. Human Ecology experienced a decrease from 85 external transfers in Fall 1990 to 56 in Fall 2004.</p>

<p>(from page12) External transfer applications for fall semester admissions have decreased 14 percent during the period from 1990 to 2004. During the same period, the number of acceptances increased 10 percent, while yield increased 1 percent. As a result, external transfer enrollment has grown over the past several years. With the North Campus Residential Initiative in place, the need for
specific external transfer admission and enrollment targets is critical in order to maintain optimal overall enrollments. A long-range enrollment plan for external transfers that will develop specific admission and enrollment targets by college is under development.

<p>Here's some info that got emailed out to CAAAN Volunteers</p>


Below, I've provided some information about our Early Decision process. Please note that these are not final statistics; rather they are a snapshot of where we stood as of Friday, December 16. </p>

<p>Early Decision Update</p>

<p>We received 2836 early decision applications for 2005-2006. This represents an increase of 11% from 2004-2005. The acceptance rate for early decision is 39%, down from last year's rate of 41.7%. </p>

<p>The following information reflects an early picture of the Early Decision applicants for the Class of 2010:</p>

<li><p>1106 admitted students (1068 admitted students for 2004-2005)</p></li>
<li><p>47.6% female, 52.4% male (50.8% are female, 49.2% are male for 2004-2005)</p></li>
<li><p>19.1% of those admitted are legacies (19.6% for 2004-2005)</p></li>
<li><p>8.4% of those admitted are Underrepresented Minorities (7.3% for 2004-2005)</p></li>
<li><p>Enrolled approximately 36% of our class through Early Decision (35% in 2004-2005)</p></li>

<p>Thank you to all of you who conducted conversations with students during the Early Decision application process. For those of you holding applicant receptions in January and February, thank you for your efforts!</p>

<p>Best wishes from Ithaca,</p>

<p>Hey does anyone know where i could find specifically, the early decission statistics for the cornell college of Engineering</p>

<p>28,012 total apps (up 15%)
2,851 ED apps (up 11%) of which 1,113 were admitted (39%)</p>

<p>Over 12,000 apps for the College of Arts & Sciences</p>

<p>The overall admit rate should drop from 26.1% last year to 22-23% - perhaps lower, if the estimated yield is conservative, with greater use made of the waitlist.</p>

<p>Anybody know the admit rate for international students?</p>

<p>There is no admit rate stats, but you can check the countries represented on the Cornell ISSA site.</p>

<p>so what college seems to be the hardest to get into? engineering? most people say that the engineering school is the hardest to get into but their numbers do not reflect that</p>

<p>Is it possible to check how the 50 states are represented at Cornell?</p>

<p>yes, the number of students from each state from the previous year are listed in any college catalog.</p>

<p>all the colleges at cornell have close acceptance rates.
<a href=""&gt;;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p>Acceptance rates by college:
AAP: 21.5%
CALS: 29.2%
CAS: 21.7%
Engr: 38.1%
HumEc: 33.6%
Hotel: 23.6%
ILR: 31.8%
<a href=""&gt;;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p>from the architecture admissions officer from cornell this year:</p>

<p>for the class of 2010-Undergraduate architecture program</p>

<p>55 admitted
12-13% acceptance rate</p>

<p>8% drop from last year...mainly because they accepted less students this year due to their opening of a grad program for AAP</p>

<p>justin, is that for RD or the entire program? 55 seems a bit low...</p>
