    !hav to try hard!

    It’s hard to know if these numbers are directly comparable with each other because they sometimes don’t match exactly across all the schools. Each school breaks down its class the way it wants to rather than using a standard method so that the numbers would be easily comparable.

    I’m curious as to why HBS takes such few humanities majors (way less than the others). Is this a relapse from experimenting with more diversity?

    The “Portrait of Class of 2015 – Undergraduate Backgrounds” looks weird for Harvard Stanford. The differences for the two schools for Econ/Biz and Humanities/Social Science are huge. I wonder if it’s a categorization thing and they are actually much closer? e.g. maybe the econ people for stanford are classified under humanities/social science.

    John,
    Thank you for all of this useful info and all the work you do. Will this information also be provided for the schools in the 10 to 20 rank positions? Thx
