Grad School Acceptace Rate

<p>Is there a place where you can check the acceptance rate of an undergraduate schools students into grad schools such as med, dental or law.Years ago when I was looking at schools they would indicate they had x number of students apply and x number were accepted.I recall reading a manual with these stats also. Does anyone know of a resource such as this?</p>

<p>Both medical and law schools have their applications filtered through a clearinghouse. That means there is a single source of data for the number of applicants who got their baccalaureate from any particular institution, as well as how many gained acceptance into law or med school.</p>

<p>To my knowledge, this data is not compiled into a single guidebook for students to use; rather, it is provided to the baccalaureate-granting institutions (they may have to pay for it, or it may be provided as a courtesy--I am not sure). This means it may not be available to prospective students--they may not get the report, or they may not make it public. Hopefully some other posters can point you to sources they know of, or correct me if I'm wrong.</p>

<p>I don't think there is the same kind of clearinghouse for business school and dental school, although I could be mistaken.</p>

<p>The individual colleges know this data and many can show it to you if you ask. Some post it on the web, but you have to hunt around to find it.</p>

<p>I wouldn't trust schools' self-reported data. Many schools have ways of filtering out weak candidates or preventing them from applying in order to boost the school's apparent acceptance rate.</p>

<p>I can understand schools would not want to report the data.They can not control who applies. The mere fact that someone reaches and applies and then gets rejected may not necessarily be a reflection of the school.Just thought would be helpfull to ncrease confidence in a student if they do not attend a Ivy School that other in the program before them were "able" to make it to med/law school etc.</p>
