Unofficial 2013 Admission Statistics

Here are some preliminary numbers about the overall admission process this year.

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.

Total number of applications: 29,005
Total number of VA apps: 8,831
Total number of OOS apps: 20,174
*These are the numbers of completed applications. Some schools report incomplete apps in their numbers.

Overall offers: 8,528
Total VA offers: 3,594 (40.7% offer rate)
Total OOS offers: 4,934 (24.46% offer rate)
Enrollment goal: 3,485
(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).

Middle 50% SAT score (offers only): 1990-2230
*We look at each section of the SAT, but our reports generate totals.

95.3% of offers were in the top 10% of their high school class

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

Please understand that I do not have additional statistics.This is a very busy week between visitors (it's spring break at many high schools) and responding to emails/comments/tweets. I'll have scholars notification information tomorrow.
