Three notes:
1. There's fifteen years of posts here, so the search box can help find an answer to common questions, but please consider the age of the posts when you find them. The college admission process changes over time!

2. The comment box doesn't show up when viewing the blog optimized for mobile. Click the "view full site" link at the bottom of the page and the site will reload with comment boxes.

Unofficial #UVA22 Early Action Statistics

The Office of Institutional Assessment is the source of all official statistics about UVA. They take a census 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 Tableau on their site.

Here are some unofficial numbers about the early action process. These numbers are up to date as of yesterday, January 25, 2018. 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: 21,573 (20,419 last year)
Total number of VA apps: 5,897
Total number of OOS apps: 15,676
We use completed applications in our statistics. There are schools that include incomplete applications in their stats.

Early Action Offers

Overall offers: 6,000
Total VA offers: 2,618 (44% offer rate)
Total OOS offers: 3,382 (21.5% offer rate)
Schools admit more students than the enrollment goal with yield in mind.Yield is how many students accept an offer of admission.

Early Action Defers

Overall defers: ~5,300
Applicants are already withdrawing, so this number changes constantly.

Early Action Testing/Rank (offers only)

Middle 50% SAT score:  1360-1500 (VA)  1440-1540 (OOS)
Middle 50% ACT composite: 31-34 (VA)  33-35 (OOS)
We use scores from each section in our review, but the reports on averages generate totals.

A couple notes:

1. I do not have additional statistics. We are already immersed in the Regular Decision review process and I have to read files!

2. The Echols, Rodman, and College Science Scholars programs are sending invitations by mail next week. 

3. Welcome packets with information about next steps will be leaving our office soon!
