The ‘prized’ institutions of study are most preferred by many students. So, in many cases, students run multiple admission processes. To schools with high acceptance rates, admission is guaranteed.  However, to institutions with more stringent requirements and much lower acceptance rates, admission is mostly ‘probable’ and in some cases, even considered ‘beyond reach’.
