    Hey guys,

    Sorry if this has been discussed beforehand (I tried to search for a few min.), but to anyone in the know...

    So I've seen some numbers on reported accepted vs. matriculated statistics (from USNews I think). Does anyone know how this data is compiled? Let's say a school is reported as accepting 450/1000 interviewee's for a class of 200. Does that 450 include people who are ultimately taken off of the waitlist, or are those just initial acceptances?

    Thanks in advance to anyone who might know...

    I'm pretty sure that the number of accepted applicants include the waitlisted ones who were eventually accepted.

    I would say that accepted is total acceptances offered regardless of whether they were part of an initial round or taken from the waitlist. It would depend on the school, but I'm guessing that many of the latter acceptances came from the waitlist.
