Ranking the Bay area schools on admissions to Harv/Princ/MIT
« on: January 14, 2020, 01:55:37 PM »
I've never seen a ranking like this but it's very interesting given it mixes public and private schools. It would be nice if the OCR did something like this for OC parents.

Nah, I will be lazy.  If your senior  class averages less than 300 and you're sending 10 kids a year to Harvard and Princeton there's other factors at play.

I'll yield the point they check the test score boxes though.

Are they ranking on absolute number rather than percentage?
Why wouldn't Stanford be included?

Absolute and matriculated (not accepted). And this FAQ explains why these 3 schools.
