According to that link, they had 6 Axline Scholarships and 9 Presidential Scholarships in an entering class of 230-240. Anyway, doesn't the low yield rate among merit scholarship recipients only confirm that merit aid has little to do with Caltech's ability to attract students?

They offered 30 Axline Scholarships and 25 "Presidential" scholarships - all based on "merit" or in a few cases URM status - and were only able to sign up a minor fraction of them. This means they offered non-need-based aid to 55 people for a class of 230 or so!!

If they didn't think it necessary - or helpful - in trying to get desirable admits as to enroll, they wouldn't offer so many of them what amounts to substantial tuition rakeoffs as an inducement.

These were just the people immediately around me.

Obviously, few people get into ALL of the other five, but a number of people at Caltech did get into at least one--most commonly Stanford or MIT.

"Caltech certainly loses the overwhelming majority of common admits to Stanford, MIT and Harvard."

Interestingly enough, although you provided a link, the link doesn't say that. It says that out of 30 Axline students (i.e. not the 400-500 total they accept) they got 20% and lost most of the rest to Stanford, MIT and Harvard.

Note that this doesn't necessarily mean ANY of Stanford, MIT, or Harvard individually had any higher yield on those students either. It's three schools. For example, say MIT got 20%, Harvard got 20%, Stanford got 20%, and the last 20% went to "other".

Regardless, your link says nothing about "the overwhelming majority of common admits" at all--to say otherwise is flat-out lying.

Subject: LOL!

Given Caltech's low yield rate, it is probably true that it loses the cross-admits to most elite schools, whether or not it tries to purchase their allegiance with tuition rake-offs in the form of so-called "merit" aid.

I do not know precisely what fraction of common admits are lost to - say - Stanford, but I can assure you that "the overwhelming majority" of common admits are lost to Harvard. This is particularly striking when one notes that Caltech applicants may be "self-selecting" - with many interested in engineering, where the Harvard program, heretofore, has been relatively narrow.

Author: Joe (Caltech '04)

So you've gone from "certainly" to "probably."

I wouldn't be so sure on "the overwhelming majority" of common admits with Harvard. That survey cited only 26 people turning down Caltech for Harvard--granted, since the schools are quite dissimilar, the "overlap" is probably not that high in the first place. Meanwhile, I knew 2 people who turned down Harvard for Caltech living right on my hallway (which was about 20 students total, in other words a sample of just 2% of the student body). The kind of Harvard admit who would have bothered to apply to Caltech in the first place would also inherently be much more interested in a science/engineering school than your average Harvard admit.

The only school I'm sure they lose the majority of common admits to (and even in this case I doubt it's "overwhelming") is MIT, which makes a lot of sense. The overlap in admits is much bigger than for the Ivies given the similarity of the schools, and MIT is a bigger name and on the east coast--interestingly, the number 1 cited reason for choosing MIT over Caltech on that survey you posted was geography.

may be simply "geography" as you posit - but somehow I think it goes deeper than that.

For women, at least, life at Caltech has long seemed rather hellish:

"For their part, Caltech officials say they do not give women an advantage. But statistics from the admissions office seem to tell a slightly different story. While only 22 per cent of the applicants for this year's freshman class were female, women make up 30 per cent of the class. The difference emerges from admissions decisions: 32 per cent of female applicants were invited to enroll, compared with 20 per cent of male applicants...."

The people I know personally at my high school that got into Caltech all chose others schools, probably because they wanted a "normal" college experience - Princeton, Stanford, and MIT were the most frequent alternatives. Caltech shouldn't even be discussed. It is such a small school with a very narrow focus. It is my understanding that a lot of Caltech grads go into academia in the sciences/engineering, and that route does not appeal to a lot of perspective college students. Caltech is smaller than the top LAC's as well (Amherst, Swarthmore, Williams)! Doesn't the freshmen class have less than 200 students in it? It should be thought about in the same light as Cooper Union, Julliard, Franklin W. Olin, etc. I don't think U.S. News should even include it in the rankings.

Subject: Consider the scale, and the subset of the applicant group

The entire student body at Caltech would be a minor subset of a single class at Harvard, MIT or Stanford - the schools which most common admits select. Very likely, those common admits who choose to go elsewhere compare very favorably, stats-wise, with those who don't.

Math and science people have disproportionately higher overall SAT scores, since there are nearly twice as many 800-scorers in math as there are in verbal.

Subject: they even dumbed down the math part.

math scores over 725 on the previous version of the sat are all 800s on the current version (I'm not counting the written part as a change to the math part)

Don't you mean verbal portion? After the recentering of the SAT for the class of 2000, you need to subtract 70-80 points from vebal SAT score to compare to previous scores.

But Caltech students also have the highest Verbal (now Critical Reading) SAT average in the country, last time I checked. It's not just Math.

(I know, I know, Caltech is the school you love to hate... flame away!)

Plenty of people at Rice never even applied to those schools. They don't view themselves as inferior to Harvard; rather, different.

Not really, I would turn down any of the HYP for Wharton. Minute you get out of Wharton you literally have a job, unless you're a total retard.

Heck look at their alumni:

Wharton is credited

Other than literally maybe one or two people at Columbia who "wanted to be in NYC," the only ones there who turned down HYP are the 6-generation legacies and children of faculty who face pressure to keep Columbia in the family.

Brown...well, I really have no idea who turns down HYP for Brown, though I'm sure it happens occasionally.

People are more likely to turn down HYP for MIT, Stanford, and specialty programs at lesser schools (such as 7-year BS/MD programs).

Brown is weird, the school probably gets a dozen or so students who turn down Harvard on a yearly basis.

I wouldn't be surprised to see the number turning down Princeton a lot higher, say, fifty a year?

Subject: The most

recent and comprehensive data was based on old information from 2000 and formed the basis for the Revealed Preferences Survey. The survey was very, very, accurate as to how Brown does with other schools. There are only six schools Brown loses students to on a consistent basis, HYPS, MIT, and Caltech. Of those schools, the overlaps with MIT, Caltech, and Princeton are very, very, small, skewing the data. The split with Yale and Princeton tends to be 75/25 in Yale's and Princeton's favor. Some years Brown does better, some years worse. With Harvard, the split tends to be 90/10, of course, in Harvard's favor. There have been some years, however, particularly in the mid 80s when Brown's split with Harvard was 85/15.
