How selective is the LinkedIn interview process for software engineers?

I checked this out on Glassdoor and here is the overview:

The process

  • Phone interview with 2 engineers. Two basic questions are asked.
  • Then invited to an onsite in Sunnyvale and Mountain View
  • The onsite consists of 4 rounds – two coding (data structure + algorithms; 2 questions per round) + one system design + one manager (/behavior) round

Difficulty

  • Difficulty rating 3.1 out of 5
  • Phone screen was average. Onsite was very hard
  • If you are familiar with web server, load balance, master-slave db, data sharding, caching, denormalizing, etc… you are in good shape

Interview to Receiving Offer Ratio:

  • 22% (188 offers from 832 interviews listed on Glassdoor) Note: This figure should be taken v loosely
