The University of Virginia has released its Regular Decision notifications for the Class of 2023. In all, between the Early Action and Regular Decision cycles, 40,815 students applied for admission to the university Thomas Jefferson founded in 1819. As our readers may remember, 25,126 of these students applied Early Action to UVA this year so if you’re wondering if more students apply Early Action as compared to Regular Decision, the answer is a definitive yes! The 40,815 applicants to the Class of 2023 marked an increase of 10% over the equivalent figure for the Class of 2022. Among all applicants, 9,725 earned the right to be Cavaliers, marking an admit rate of 24% (down 2.4% from last year). The Early Action admit rate for the Class of 2023 stood at 26% (down from 27.7% for the Class of 2022).
UVA Loves Its Virginians
As reports Whitelaw Reid for “UVA Today” in a piece entitled “Wahooowa! UVA Releases Admissions Decisions,” “While the numbers aren’t yet final, Dean of Admission Gregory W. Roberts believes the class will be special. ‘This is a remarkable class of admitted students in every way,” he said. “We are particularly pleased that so many of the students who received offers will be the first in their family to attend college. It’s an honor to welcome this talented and richly diverse group of scholars to UVA. We hope to see many on Grounds in the coming weeks for open house events as they make their college selection.’…Thirty-six percent of in-state students received offers, compared to 19 percent of non-Virginians. The enrollment target for the class is 3,740 students, with 67 percent coming from Virginia.”
UVA’s Basketball Title Will Lead to Increased Applications Next Year
Congratulations to all students who earned admission to the university that is this year’s National Champion in men’s college basketball. After bowing out as the first #1-seed to lose to a #16-seed in the 2018 NCAA Tournament, UVA marched to a title in 2019 in electrifying fashion. And our crystal ball hereby predicts the university will receive more applications than ever before during the 2019-2020 admissions cycle as a result of its shining moment in March Madness. Go Cavaliers!
