    Let's see how close our numbers are with the US News stats (% wise).

    They have a published acceptance rate in USNWR:

    2003: 13.70%
    2004: 16.20%
    2005: 29.7%

    anyone find 2005 to be an anomoly?

    I noticed that. I really think US News may have mistakenly used the % Interviewed number! NYU interviews about 1/3, and about 1/2 get in off interview. Half of 29.7% is about 15%, near their average accept rate. What a big mistake if thats what really happened. Maybe NYU slipped a spot or 2 b/c of this. They must be steaming over at nyu!

    There is speculation on the rate decreasing next year with the reintroduction of AMCAS applications. But who knows.

    I would seriously be interested to know if this is true. Anyone know for sure? I can definitely tell you that seeing that number has really turned me off.

    I don't care how many applicants they accept, as long as I'm one of them.

    interesting though that SDN has a 25% acceptance rate so far before waitlist movement. Of course this is such a self selective sample it probably means diddly squat.

    It's actually 42% as I look at it now. You can't count people who didn't apply.

    LOL.

    I'm not sure if I feel better or worse with the 24% accepted vs. the 44%!?!

    What do you think is the national average for % matriculated of acceptances offered.
