Early Action Admission Statistics

Here are some numbers about the early action process. I ran these numbers in the wee hours of the night, so they are up to date as of 1/16/2013. 

I am not the source of official statistics. 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 official admission data in the data digest part of their website.   Obviously, what happened in past years isn't going to predict the future, but some people have fun playing around with the different charts on their site.

Early Action Admission
Total number of Early Action applications: 13,670
Total number of VA apps: 3,985
Total number of OOS apps: 9,685
*These are the numbers of completed applications. Some schools report incomplete apps in their numbers.

Overall offers: 3,841
Total VA offers: 1,695 (42.5% offer rate)
Total OOS offers: 2,146 (22% offer rate)
Enrollment goal: 3,475
(between EA and RD)

*Schools admit more students than the enrollment goal with yield in mind.
Yield is how many students accept an offer of admission. Check out yield from past years, broken down by residency (these numbers are for the entire applicant pool, not just early action).

Overall defers: 3,454
Total VA defers: 1,001
Total OOS defers: 2,453
*Some applic
ants will withdraw, so these numbers will drop.

Middle 50% SAT score (offers only): 2030-2260
*We look at each section of the SAT, but the reports on averages generate totals.

97.8% of offers were in the top 10% of their high school class

*This number only reflects those who attend schools that report rank.

Early Action Scholar Invitations
1 in 20 early applicants to the College of Arts & Sciences invited into Echols Scholars Program
1 in 25 early applicants to the School of Engineering invited into Rodman Scholars Program
1 in 200 early applicants to the College of Arts & Sciences invited into College Science Scholars
*These numbers are a result of our review.  We didn't not start the year with these numbers in mind.

Please understand that I do not have additional statistics.This is a very busy week between application reading, responding to emails/comments/tweets, and evening programs.
