R2 admits had to pay their commitment fee last week so now I can share the new yield and class of 2008 statistics.
I had mentioned in a previous post that yield in R1 was around 75%. In R2, yield was only 59%. I guess those who apply in R1 are the very very eager and loyal ones (like me :-) ), I really wanted to go only to LBS). So now overall 360 offers have been extended and 234 have paid the commitment fee (overall yield 65%).
There are now at least 70 spots left, and I'm sure some people won't pay their reservation fee in June so there might be 80-90 spots still left for R3 and R4 applicants. This is pretty encouraging, isn't it?
Female share is down to 26%, which is better than in recent years but less than it was among the total group of admits, so yield was lower for female students for some reason.
R3 offers will be extended soon and then more people will join the portal and also attend admits weekend. I can't wait to meet everyone!
