    So 26.2% and 25.4% both equal about 19%? You might want to take a closer look at Penn…

    So basically there are about 350 places left out of probably 35,000 regular decision applications. Good Luck!

      You’re assuming 100% yield for regular decision applicants, which is almost certainly not the case. Harvard has the second-highest yield of of any school (next to Brigham Young), and their yield is less than 75%, if I remember correctly.

        The statement above is correct. There are about 350 places left. No one said anything about acceptance rates. And Columbia has 100% acceptance rates of its ED candidates, as it is binding.

        the statement above is NOT correct. according to the link below

        http://www.studentaffairs.columbia.edu/admissions/classprofile

        there are 1396 students in the class of 2015. assuming yield stays same, there are 1046 spots left.

        And you are not correct either. 1396- 631= 765 places left in Columbia’s combined undergrad schools of the College and Engineering.

    It says Columbia rejected 3088, but it only got 3088 application in total. Also 631/3088 would get the 20.4 admission, right. Just something to note. Thanks for the update through. I was personally deferred this year, so the data makes me a little more confident. At least, when compared with Yale and Harvard’s near 60% deferral rates. By the way, I love the newspaper and have been reading if for a while to get a feel of the school. I can’t wait until march when I get my final decision.

    Speaking of numbers, the chart is listing early admission acceptance rates, not percent of applications, correct?

    By the way, I’m in the same deferral boat as you, dongzzhong. Good luck in March :)

    obviously like your web-site but you need to test the spelling on
    quite a few of your posts. Several of them are
    rife with spelling problems and I to find it very troublesome to inform the truth then again I’ll certainly come back again.
