Unofficial #UVA19 Admission Statistics

As usual, I am sharing some unofficial statistics this application season. These numbers weren't targets (meaning, we don't read to "hit" a certain test statistic), they are the result of our review process. Please keep in mind that the Office of Institutional Assessment is the source of all official statistics about UVa. They will determine the final statistics for the class, which can be found in the data digest part of their website

Here are some unofficial numbers about this year's process. These numbers are up to date as of 3/22/2015. If you are a reporter reading this, please be sure to get in touch with the Media Relations team in the Office of University Communications for all of your reporterly needs. :)

If you want to look at numbers from past years, head to the Office of Institutional Assessment site (link above) or click on the "statistics" tag at the end of this post, which will take you to older posts of this nature. Remember that my numbers are unofficial and old posts were not updated when the census was taken.

 


Applications
Total number of applications: 30,853
Total number of VA apps: 9,147
Total number of OOS apps: 21,706
We use completed application numbers in our statistics. There are schools that include incomplete applications in their stats.


Offers
Overall offers: 8,786
Total VA offers: 3,800 (41.5% offer rate)
Total OOS offers: 4,986 (23% offer rate)
Enrollment goal:
3,675

Schools admit more students than the enrollment goal with yield in mind.
Yield is how many students accept an offer of admission. We do not try to figure out an individual student's likelihood of enrolling (demonstrated interest), but overall yield influences the offer rate. Check out yield from past years, broken down by residency.

Testing/Rank
Middle 50% SAT score (offers only): 1970-2250
Middle 50% ACT composite (offers only): 30-34
We use scores from each section in our review, but the reports on averages generate totals.

93.2% 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. It's Days on the Lawn season and spring break at many high schools, so we are inundated with visitors. We have also moved into the transfer review process (reading season doesn't end with the first year release!). There will be a post about the waiting list tomorrow and more on Days on the Lawn later this week.
