Ph.D. acceptance rate of US grad schools

Postby yaskhn3 » Sun Aug 26, 2018 7:57 am

Hello everyone!

Due to the cut-throat competition in Ph.D. admissions at top grad schools, it would be great to have a list of acceptance rate of various schools like:

MIT
Princeton
Harvard
Stanford
UCB
Caltech
CMU etc.

If anyone has them or knows some source to find these, please help me out.

Thanks!

According to one of the professors at UCB, there were about 550 applicants, including roughly 300 strong ones, and only 30ish students were accepted from a pool of 300.

Are you sure it's not around 30 students matriculated in the end? According to https://math.berkeley.edu/about there are 180 grad students, so if people take 5-6 years to graduate they would need near 100% yield to only admit 30 students.

I heard ~10% admit rate for a couple of the schools on your list.

I met this professor in his office when I was in the area at a relative's place and I remember him saying this. Hmm...maybe the 180 includes some masters students.
