Here is all of the information that kkgirl06 is using to provide you with your chances. They are solely based on SATs of unhooked (non URM, athlete, legacy, etc) in 100 point increments. Another note is that the stats are a little old as the study was done in the late 90's up to I think 2000. The EA schools are: Boston College, Brown (it was EA at the time), UChicago, Georgetown, Harvard, and MIT. The ED schools are Columbia, Cornell, Dartmouth, Duke, Penn, Princeton, Stanford (pre-EA), and Yale (pre-EA). The stats are as follows (R after SAT score means regular E means early) and I am saying the maximum increase in chances you receive by applying early

Nice job, you've made everyone's lives easier :)

Is there anywhere I can get info on this for, say, Northwestern?

By Chasgoose (Chasgoose) on Tuesday, November 25, 2003 - 11:04 pm: Edit

I doubt it, these stats came from a book called "The Early Admissions Game" which took the results of a study of the admisisons outcomes of a large number of applicants at these schools over 3-5 year period and analyzed them. Since Northwestern was not on their list I don't think you will be able to find anything like this for them.

for bc, what would the rate be for scores lower than the 1300.

By Me1 (Me1) on Tuesday, November 25, 2003 - 11:16 pm: Edit

Hey I have a question.

If it says (hypothetical example) a 1500 has a 50% chance, does it mean a score of exactly 1500? Or all the scores in the 1500's range (ie. 1500-1590) average out to 50%? Like... if you had a score in the mid-1500's, would your % be the percentage listed as 1500? or somewhere b/t the 1500 & 1600 pecentages?

By Chasgoose (Chasgoose) on Tuesday, November 25, 2003 - 11:33 pm: Edit

Hnbui, the scores don't go lower than 1300.

Me1, I think the rates are for the specific scores so if you are in the mid-1500s just put yourself somewhere between 1500 and 1600 percentages.

To all, remember, these stats are not wholly accurate, but just an estimate so the exactness of where you are if you are somewhere in the middle doesn't matter much just use these as a guideline as you would the top 25% and 75% SAT percentiles that schools provide.

Thats not true-- Stanford rejected 60% of 1600s last year...

By Chasgoose (Chasgoose) on Wednesday, November 26, 2003 - 11:51 am: Edit

Read my intro, these stats were accumulated from the late 90's to 2000 not last year.
