    Say a school interviews 200 people and the new entrants on the MSAR says like 50. How many people does the school offer a spot too. I assume they must have to offer over this to get 50, and also somehow the waitlist has to factor in here, how does this work. Can anyone shed some light on this?

    Thanks

    again, it varies by school - eg Harvard has a class size of 135. To fill this they make around 170 offers. Last year I think they quoted 186.

    My state school has a similar class size but to fill it makes twice as many offers as there are # seats.

    schools are all different...some have to give out more acceptances to fill their classes.

    for example, med college of ohio...

    applid 2,283 interviewed 486 accepted 311 enrolled 140

    congrats!

    The MSAR does not specify this. If you go to www.usnews.com, it will tell you how many students are interviewed, how many were accepted and offered a spot, and how many enrolled.

    I couldn't find that info in USNEWS for some reason. Looked on the website and the magazine they publish. I am looking in the wrong place.

    Gaberman, where are those stats from? also what year? and is that for the whole class (in state and out of state mixed).

    Thanks

    It's a subscription service now. If you subscribe and go to the rankings, you can get tons and tons of detailed information about the schools.

    Something else to keep in mind. The statistics for 'applied' on usnews is all who designated that school on AMCAS. The number i feel is more important is the number of people who complete secondaries. For Georgetown I remember seeing that only 60% of AMCAS applicants fill out the secondary.

    more interesting is what % of the interviewed pool get accepted. some schools are very high, like michigan, ucsd, usc, and northwestern. they are all around 60%+.

    Is this detailed info also available in the print edition of the rankings, or only in the web version? I'm contemplating forking over another $9.95 to see the numbers (after having fought the temptation to do so for so long...).

    I was wondering the same thing, but then I read that it had detailed stuff on the web on their website. I knew that was not true of the print edition, so I just forked over the 10 bucks a little while ago. I haven't had time to look at in detail yet, but it does have a lot more info like how many interviewed, accepted, etc. I guess its worth the 10 bucks, although 5 would be a more appropriate deal in my opinion.

    I believe the print edition has the same info, but don't quote me on that. I thought I remember seeing it in the back. When I find last year's print edition (I have the online subscription to this year's), I'll let you know. :)
