This post was prompted by a very legit question asked by a BSer planning a Round 2 strategy a few weeks ago: Given that the Haas admit rate is actually lower than Kellogg, why would EssaySnark claim that it’s easier to get in?
Many years ago we published our own “rankings” on which schools were easiest to get into – a very unscientific yet solid assessment of the Top 19 (not 10; not 20; 19) based on our actual lived experience in helping qualified applicants trying for them all.

All of this is kinda of moot when you are considering what YOUR strategy should be.
YOUR strategy should be based on which school is best for YOUR goals and objectives, where the school is a fit to who YOU are as a candidate, and a person.
Both of these schools care about their community a lot, and they look at applicants in semi-similar ways — but that’s kind of where the similarities end. It’s a much more nuanced reality behind closed doors of an admissions team at the individual institutions, and the market forces and ecosystem dynamics for each school is actually quite unique.
