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 Admission Statistics for the #UVA Class of 2023

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 later in the year. You can see official admission data in the data digest part of their website, including admission data by residency and school of entry.

Here are some unofficial numbers about this year's process. These numbers are up to date as of yesterday, March 24, 2019. 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. :)

Total Applications

Total applications: 40,869 (37,182 last year)
Total number of VA apps: 12,010
Total number of OOS apps: 28,859
We use completed applications in our statistics.

Total Offers of Admission

Overall offers: 9,787
Total VA offers:  4,331 (36% offer rate)
Total OOS offers:  5,456 (19% offer rate)
Schools admit more students than the enrollment goal with yield in mind. Yield is how many students accept an offer of admission.

Testing/Rank (offers only)

Middle 50% SAT score:  1340-1500 (VA)  1430-1540 (OOS)
Middle 50% ACT composite: 32-34 (VA)  33-35 (OOS)
These are the results of our review. These were not targets. We use scores from each section in our review, but the reports on averages generate totals.

Defers and Waiting List

Deferred students offered admission: 12% (16.6% last year)
Waiting list offers: 13% of Regular Decision applicants (28.6% last year)
The waiting list forms as students opt into it via the portal and we have seen up to HALF decline putting themselves on the list. The waiting list will have ten different segments (in-state and OOS for each of the five academic areas that take first-year students).

A couple notes:

1. I do not have additional statistics. You can see last year's stats broken down by residency, school of entry, and other criteria using the "official admission data" link I provided in the first paragraph.

2. Scholar status is shown in the portal. If you were invited to join Echols, Rodman, or College Science Scholars during this round, you will see this in the portal. If you were not invited to join now, you can join them after the first semester. Information about this is on each program's webpage.

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