It was a banner Early Action cycle for the University of Virginia this year. In all, 25,126 students applied for Early Action admission — a new benchmark for the school founded by Thomas Jefferson and an increase of about 17% from just last year. Of these 25,126 applicants, 6,550 earned admission. This marks an Early Action admit rate of 26% for UVA’s Class of 2023. This same figure stood at 27.7% for the Class of 2022. Overall applications to UVA are up this year as well. Including both the Early Action and Regular Decision rounds, 40,804 students applied to UVA this year — an increase of 10% from last year.
Breakdown of UVA’s Class of 2023 Early Action Admits
As reports Whitelaw Reid for “UVA Today” in a piece entitled “Decision Day, Part 1: UVA Releases Early Action Decisions,” “UVA offered admission to 41 percent more applicants who would be the first in their family to attend college than a year ago (444 to 627), and admitted nearly 4 percent more minority students via early action. In addition, the mean SAT scores of accepted early action students rose from 1,447 to 1,449. The offer rate for out-of-state students dropped 2.1 percent, from 21.4 percent to 19.3 percent.”
Congratulations to our students at Ivy Coach who earned admission to UVA this Early Action cycle! We’re so very happy for you. Go Cavaliers!
