Just curious

<p>Does anyone know the admit rate for Harvard undergrads applying to Harvard's graduate schools?
This is all their site had to say on the matter.
"Harvard College is almost always the best-represented undergraduate institution at Harvard's graduate schools."
Anyone know a numerical ballpark?</p>

<p>It depends--professional schools? Quite good. But for academic graduate school? -- many departments want students to go elsewhere for their PhD as they hold that they should learn a new way of looking at the material-- for example, the math department actually states up front that they will not take their own undergraduates as PhDs. They are happy to have them apply for post docs but not for the graduate degree itself. Obviously this is not iron-clad and some departments are more willing to take undergrads, but actually, the idea of going elsewhere for cross fertilization makes sense anyway.</p>
