The University of Virginia, one of our nation’s most elite public universities, today admitted 35% of Early Decision applicants. As we previously reported, 2,157 students applied under UVA’s binding Early Decision policy, a policy that was reinstated this cycle for the first time since 2006. Of the 2,157 applicants, 749 will be Cavaliers. These figures do not include the 25,063 Early Action applicants; Early Action applicants to UVA have not yet learned of their decisions. Early Action applicants will learn of their decisions — as per usual — in mid-February. So just who was admitted to the University of Virginia’s Class of 2024 in the Early Decision round?
Breakdown of the Early Decision Admits to UVA’s Class of 2024
As reports Kate Bellows for The Cavalier Daily in a piece entitled “U.Va. admits 35 percent of applicants for the Class of 2024 in first early decision cycle since 2006,” “According to data provided to The Cavalier Daily by the Office of Admission, 62 percent of those accepted, or 466 students, are Virginian. 26 percent of admitted students are legacies, meaning one or both of their parents attended college at the University, and seven percent are first-generation college students. 59 percent of those accepted are female, and 41 percent are male. 24.3 percent of accepted students are minorities, and 6.7 percent are foreign nationals. The mean SAT score of accepted students is 1413.”
Congratulations to all students who earned admission to the University of Virginia under its freshly reinstated binding Early Decision policy!
