Acceptance Chances post-interview

Recommended Posts

A friend told me that if you've received an interview, you've greater than a coin's toss chance of receiving an acceptance. Is it really true that acceptance rates post-interview are >50%? I mean, I don't wanna get my hopes up lol

Yes, about 60%. According to the CMES report they handed out 330 acceptances for ~550 interviews. 

Now, it's not a pure coin toss, your interview counts for 70%, but you've gone from a pool of 5k to 500 for 206 spots, and that's more manageable.

So if they only take 205-206 but hand out 330 acceptances, do ~125 people get in off the waitlist? That's a lot of waitlist movement!

I know some US schools intentionally over accept, Taking yield % into account
