What's with the world?

250 applicants, out of the total 5000 (approx.), were accepted and admitted to the nursery school of DPS. The acceptance rate is about 5%.

5 %.

Wait. Do you know what Harvard's acceptance rate for undergraduate students is?
Ans: 9%

Conclusion: It's harder to get into the Nursery School of DPS than Harvard.
Ridiculous.

Most of the 250 applicants get selected by using their **contacts**.

And hey, isn't India overpopulated anyway. Many people don't go to college in America, because they aren't able to get good scholarships. And parents only hold responsibilities over their till their kids are 18.

I made a mistake.
What I wanted to say is:

"No, its not really ridiculous.

You see, at the nursery level, there are a lot of applicants who do not have the required criteria for admission. Some are too leaky for their own good in a classroom. Some are struggling with colors.

At UG level though, most morons can solve problems based on substitution in formulae. They are also less likely to have bladder control problems.

Result: It is harder to get into the Nursery class of DPS than Harvard, but its not ridiculous, it's statistically stupid.

Logically fine, of course."

one thing I dont understand is the fact that when i was in prep of DPS EoK, There were 11 sections (combining both EoK and Vasant Vihar). Each section had atleast 40 kids. That translates to around 440 kids at a bare minimum.. Now they have taken only 250.. Where are the rest of the 200 ?
