Data Guru Analysis: The Low GPA Challenge

Although there isn’t enough data to analyze low GPA acceptance rates with a strong level of confidence at each school, I posted my estimated acceptance rates for each school below. I included the sample sizes so you can get an idea of how trustworthy the acceptance rate calculations are. For example, Foster and Mendoza have a sample size below 10, so you probably can’t trust the accuracy of these acceptance rates. On the other hand, Ross has a sample size of 45, so I trust the 40% acceptance rate for Michigan much more than Mendoza and Foster.
