Toughest Ivy to get into?

<p>There's a million opinions on this, but I know Princeton is the hardest Ivy to get into. Harvard has the does Yale...but Princeton is on top these days. The Ivy's own online community, (<a href=""&gt;;/a&gt;), has a "toughest Ivy poll" going and Princeton's on top. What do you guys think?</p>

<p>I would've thought Yale (at least by their EA/Princeton ED ratios)</p>

<p>Yeah, me too. Princeton's hard, but I wouldn't say it's the hardest. Or maybe that's just wishful thinking on my part...</p>

<p>Thanks for the link, btw. I registered, so we'll see what this does...</p>

<p>I would not jump to the notation that oneivy is the Ivy's own online community. Being a Penn student, I can almost guarantee that oneivy is not a very representative website for the Ivy population (the Penn portion at least).</p>

<p>My daughter, three years ago, got into Harvard Early Action and was accepted at Yale (and went there) but got turned down at Brown.</p>

<p>I always thought that Harvard and Yale were harder, but like philntex, maybe that's just my wishing...</p>

<p>Yale is statistically the hardest one to get into, but Princeton is better. :-)</p>

<p>Every review I've read says that Princeton is the hardest...which makes sense seeing that it's also one of the smallest.</p>

<p>That's whay I need people to evaluate my chances!

<p>P.S. My board is in the "Princeton" and "What are my chances?" forums</p>

<p>All people can tell you is, "your chances look pretty good to me...I hope I see you there."</p>

<p>w/e, it gives me a fake sense of confidence.</p>


<p>I dont know how far its true...but i hear Yale is harder to get into cos they give more importance to legacy than the proportion of seats available for non-legacy students is less...what do you think?</p>

<p>for what is's worth on the legacy issue, I have a nephew who got in to Yale who is a legacy and a niece who did not who was not (legacy). She probably had better stats than her cousin but applied EA in 2003, which seemed to be a killer year with huge increase in EA apps. It also is about far more than the stats and I am not sure this was ever comprehended. I think all of these elite schools weigh legacy a lot. I am actually kind of proud that my own D. opted to go where legacy was not an issue, choosing instead the LAC that was a good fit for her as the individual she is.</p>

<p>i would think harvard b/c everyone's like "omg! harvard!" and then they apply "just to see if i can get in"...u know?...even people across the world (wherever you live)...just mho, though</p>

<p>harvard may top princeton in applicants to acceptance by a slim margin, but my guess is that princeton is on the rise. harvard has great grad schools but pales to princeton's undergrad offerings imho..</p>
