Schools Is it easier to get into a University in Colorado than it is to in California

  1. Nov 27, 2009 #1
    Since schools in California offering engineering M.A.s, B.A.s, and P.H.D.s are for the most part very competitive, would it be easier to get into a university in say Colorado?

    It's pretty much impossible to generalize since things vary wildly from campus to campus and from department to department. For physics and astronomy programs, AIP publishes a catalog of graduate programs which has admission statistics for all of the graduate programs in the US.

    Colorado's site said they had 550 applicants to their PhD program last year and the incoming class was 27. Figure about 100 got accepted, so 1 in 5 people get accepted when applying to Colorado. I imagine the statistics for the "more prestigious" UC's are similar.

    If you are looking into Engineering Physics or another engineering field, CSM is very well ranked also.
