Statistics for the Class of 2012

Here are the statistics I have so far. I'm giving everything I can right now, so please understand if I don't reply to requests for different stats. The official statistics will be published by the Office of Institutional Assessment. My numbers are unofficial and they never completely agree with the official ones.

Total number of applications: 18,531
Total number of VA apps: 7,355
Total number of OOS apps: 11,176

Overall offer rate: 35.7% (6,628 total offers)
Overall VA offer rate: 45.8% (3,372 offers)
Overall OOS offer rate: 29% (3,256 offers)

Enrollment goal: 3,170 first-year students with roughly 2,092 being from VA

The offers numbers for VA and OOS are similar because yield for OOS is generally lower and we need to offer to more students to get the number that we need to enroll.

Overall applications were up slightly, but international applications were up 21%.
