Early Action Admission Statistics

Here are some numbers about the class. Please understand that I do not have additional statistics. I am giving you all I can right now.  Questions usually come in consistently throughout notification day, but unlike previous years, I am reading files today.  I'll try to reply to comments over the weekend.

The Office of Institutional Assessment is the source of all official statistics about UVa.  They take a census in October to determine the final statistics for the class.   You can see statistics from decision days in prior years by hitting the "statistics" tag at the bottom of this post.  You can see admission data from the last twenty years in the data digest part of their website.  Another part of their site has data going back to 1977!  Obviously, what happened decades ago isn't going to tell you too much about this year, but some people have fun playing around with the different charts on their site.

Total number of Early Action applications: 11,753
Total number of VA apps: 3.514
Total number of OOS apps:8.239

Overall offers: 3.184 total offer
Total VA offers: 1,547 offers (44%)
Total OOS offers: 1,637 offers (20%)

Enrollment goal: 3,360 first-year students total (between EA and RD)

SAT Mean (of the offer group): 2119
% in the top 10% of their high school class (offers only): 98.3%

The offers numbers for VA and OOS are similar because yield for OOS is generally lower.
