number_cruncher Posted February 6, 2010 Share Posted February 6, 2010 I've been poking around with the results data to see what kind of statistics can be generated from the available data. So far there's not much, bgk's estimate of 1/10 was a little optimistic. However, here's some data to get the controversy started. From all acceptance results with gpa data and schools with more than 5 acceptances, here's the average GPA of those accepted and number of data points used to compute the average: Stanford University 3.874211 19Cornell University 3.868182 11Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) 3.848182 11University Of California, Berkeley (UCB) 3.835000 14University Of Chicago 3.816364 11Northwestern University 3.795000 10California Institute Of Technology (Caltech) 3.773333 6University Of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB) 3.768571 7Harvard University 3.765556 9University Of Pennsylvania (UPenn) 3.756250 8 Stanford most selective!??!
