easier to get into trinity or pratt?

<p>title says it all</p>

<p>It really depends, what are your SATs</p>

<p>Trinity has a lower acceptance rate but Pratt is more self selecting and has higher test scores/GPA standards. If you've shown accomplishment in math and science and have good "numbers," Pratt is probably more likely to accept you as it may be a bit more of an objective process. If you have more "average" stats (for Duke standards), but have made an impact in some other way through extracurricular activities, Trinity is more likely to see you as a strong candidate. Neither is considerably easier/harder than the other.</p>

<p>Honestly, I think the best option is just to apply to the school that has the major that you want to study. It won't be easy trying to apply to an engineering school, when you don't have an interest in engineering, and vice versa for a liberal arts degree. I'm sure the admissions officers can see through your strengths and weaknesses, so here, honesty truly is the best policy.</p>

<p>That being said, I think Pratt has stronger stats (SATs, GPA, competitions, etc.), but Trinity has more well-rounded applicants.</p>

<p>It seems to me as if you're trying to "game the system"; just apply to whichever college has your major and let destiny take its course.</p>

<p>i remember reading somewhere that the acceptance rate was higher in pratt than trinity for rd. not sure for ed.</p>

<p>It had a higher acceptance rate all around but this was because of the self-selective factor as bluedog said. The normal applicant doesn't just apply to an Engineering-only school on a whim, it is because they really like it and on average their stats will be higher and their EC's evident of that interest.</p>
