What is cornell CAS acceptance rate for class of 2008?

<p>So what is it?</p>

<p>around 25%</p>

<p>anyone know about engineering acceptance rate?</p>

<p>33%, around.</p>

<p>Around 20%.</p>

<p>Cornell's cumulative acceptance was around 27%.</p>

<p>Arts gets the most apps and is typically the most selective with the possible exception of Architecture.</p>

<p>no.. it was 25%. check the cornell database.</p>

<p>no, engineering is the easiest school to get into if you look at acceptance rate. they are the reason cornell's acceptance rate is so high (mainly because a lot of them who are accepted end up going to MIT Caltech, etc, so they have to accept more). last year, it was 38% accepted, and the year before 37%, so, despite an overall acceptance decrease from 2003 to 2004, engineering actually went up.</p>

<p>Wow! That made me feel so much better. Here's to hopin. Thanks!</p>

<p>The stats are deceiving you. Engineering and Arts and Science are the HARDEST to gain acceptance. Look at the SATs and the percent in the top 10% of the class.</p>

<p>It's the same as Johns Hopkins ans the University of Chicago. Both have relatively high acceptance rates, but the acceptances rates are artificially high because it is self-selective.</p>

<p>what's self-selected? </p>

<p>I feel hotel and aap are the hardest to get into. it takes a lot of interest and porfolio and experiences in those field as opposed to just mundane classwork to get accepted. i would not havegotten in, no matter what my grades and scores were.</p>

<p>Is CALS or CAS harder to gain admission into?</p>

<p>CAS for sure.</p>

<p>Depends on the programs you are applying to. Econ, Bio, business, etc.: all the popular majors will be difficult to get into.</p>
