Statistics for the Class of 2013

Here are some preliminary numbers for you to crunch on. Please understand that I do not have additional statistics. I am giving you all I can right now and the office is very, very busy today.

The Office of Institutional Assessment is the source of all official statistics about UVa. Their website will update in time with more data.

First of all, there were 21,839 applications. We expected a jump in applications and a jump in the number of incomplete applications because of the move to the Common App. We had 18,598 applications last year.

Total number of applications: 21,839
Total number of VA apps: 7,663
Total number of OOS apps: 13,764

Overall offers: 6,331 total offers (28.9%)
Total VA offers: 3,276 offers (42.7%)
Total OOS offers: 3,055 offers (22%)

Enrollment goal: 3,240 first-year students

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.

International Applications: 2,188
(1,484 last year...might be a sign of UVa's name recognition abroad)

Middle 50% on the first two parts of the SAT (offers only): 1300-1480
% in the top 10% of their high school class (offers only): 91
