UNOFFICIAL Early Action 2015 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. 

Here are some unofficial numbers about the early action process. These numbers are up to date as of this morning. If you are a reporter, please contact the Media Relations team in the Office of University Communications for current, official information and all of your reporterly needs. :)


Early Action Applications
Total number of Early Action applications: 16,092
Total number of VA apps: 4,349
Total number of OOS apps: 11,743
We use completed application numbers in our statistics. There are schools that include incomplete applications in their stats.

 

Early Action Offers
Overall offers: 4,856
Total VA offers: 2,044 (47% offer rate)
Total OOS offers: 2,812 (23.9% offer rate)
*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). 

Early Action Defers
Overall defers: 3,963
Total VA defers: 1,048
Total OOS defers: 2,915
Some applicants will withdraw, so these numbers will go down.


Early Action Testing/Rank
Middle 50% SAT score (offers only): 2010-2270
Middle 50% ACT composite (offers only): 31-34
We use scores from each section in our review, but the reports on averages generate totals.

95% of admitted students 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. We are now immersed in the Regular Decision review process. There will be a post about scholars programs tomorrow.
