Getting in - a tough act

We were kind of amazed by the number of students that applied to our program, in year 1. We got to pick and choose from a very wide range of applicants. Now that the numbers are more or less in, we tried to see how selective we had been -- and it turns out that ITFD this year was the toughest master at BGSE to get into. We rejected more than 35% of applicants (in addition to those who didn't satisfay basic criteria), being almost twice as tough as the next-most selective program. This is how we compare:

program rejection rate
ITFD 37%
CompMR 21%
GPEM-Econ 20%
MESI 18%
Macro 16%
GPEM-Fin 9%
