The original question was what one's chance is after an interview invite.
Most of the percentages (ex. Boston) I got directly from the Admission Directors. Tufts has an aggressive screening process prior to the interview and they will have a higher rate of acceptance. PENN I was told at the interview it was 2/3 or 66%. temple I know they interview 25-33% as told to me by Mark Lombard for 125 seats and they have a pretty high acceptance rate as well.
After talking with students who served on the acceptance committee the number I was told around 33-50%. Unlike UOP and Tufts, Temple does not screen its applicants very closely prior to interview. I know you have a much, much higher chance of acceptance at Temple if you interview early. If a school screens aggressively prior to the interview then that means there is more chances of acceptance afterwards. Hope this helps.
For temple 25% are asked for an interview. SO about 500 out of 2000 will be asked for an interview. The class size of temple is 125 as said b4.
If they took between 33-50% then that would be accepting 150-250 people. Schools have to factor in that students will turn down their school for another one.
SO 33% is definately way too low, out of 125 spots, there is no way that schools will assume that only 25 people will turn down their school.
I dont know what DD talked to, but that is inaccurate.
I am pretty sure that Temple does not screen its applicants closely prior to interview...I got my interview invite 2-3 days after AADSAS submitted my app in! it takes a least 1-2 days to mail it all the way to California...
When I went to interview, I found that some of the applicant haven't taken DAT, or part of the application are not complete etc...
Student at Temple told us that we have a "high chance" of acceptance once we get interviewed, but I didn't ask for specific numbers....
Oh..if anyone is interested, i just found from UCONN website
that in 1999, 1000 applications are received, out of those, 150 interviewed and 100 offers
I also found from past archives from SDN that UCLA (few yrs ago), interviewed about 180, 150 offered acceptance.
33% is what the students who were on the admission committee told me. Mark said that they expect 2,400-2,600 applications this year. Temple gets the most apps out of any school. Besides there are "rounds" of acceptances. If in the first round they send out 300 acceptances and 100 people accept than naturally they will accept less and less people. So it varies. If only 10 people out of 300 people accept and put down an offer in the first round and 40 in the second and so on then more people go accepted. You have to take that into consideration.
