    hi All.

    I have a quick question, don't make fun if this is ridiculous.

    can someone explain to me what the enrollment ratios mean?
    like if its 6:7:3, what in the world does that mean?

    Like I understand if it says 2:1 (maybe for every 2 ppl interviewed, 1 is accepted?)

    but what do the tri ratio mean, especially when the first number is lower than the second like above?

    I'd greatly appreciate some kind of explanation!

    Thanks!:)

    Where did you get this tri-ratio from?

    I know for the PSAR ratios, the ratio is # of applicants/seats available, but I've never seen a tri-ratio before.

    Are you sure you're not confusing the colon with a period?
    It might look like 6.7:3, meaning 6.7 applicants for every 3 accepted

    Are those actual numbers? It could possibly be applied:interviewed:accepted but with the 6:7:3 it doesn't work.
