A year ago I posted on:
This year Stanford University attained an all-time low of 5% acceptances, the second year in a row where the national odds were the worst for admittance. There were 42,167 applications, and the good news only went to 2,138. Harvard and Yale accepted 6%, Columbia and Princeton 7%, and MIT and University of Chicago 8%. A generation ago, the lowest ranged in the vicinity of 20%.
- grade point average 4.0 or above = 7%
- SAT reading score 800 = 14% (mind you, this is perfect)
- SAT math score 800 = 10% (same)
- ACT composite score 30-36 = 7%
