    University of Michigan: http://www.universityherald.com/articles/73182/20170417/umich-receives-nearly-60-000-freshman-applications-fall-2017.htm
    UMich Receives Nearly 60,000 Freshman Applications For Fall 2017

    The University of Michigan has set another record for freshmen applications for the fall of this year. The school has held the record for several years now.

    UMich has gotten the highest number of applications in terms of reviewing and processing for freshmen. The institution received 58,590 applications in total for the incoming class.

    Michigan Live reported that this is a seven percent increase. UMich has offered admissions to over 14,000 students, university spokesman Rick Fitzgerald said. This year's total number of freshmen applications set a record for the school for the 11th consecutive year.
    ****
    Fitzgerald added that they expect to enroll a freshman class of an estimated 6,600 students. Of all the applications received last year, 10,959 were submitted by in-state students with 4,511 being offered admissions for an acceptance rate of 42.4 percent.

    Out of the 35,783 applications submitted by students living in other states and the 8,758 applicants living in other countries, 10,815 were offered admission for an out-of-state acceptance rate of 24.5 percent.

    @odannyboySF Richmond is not ready to release their stats yet, and will probably not do so until their entire 2021 class is confirmed and filled up.
  • sdl0625sdl0625 Registered User Posts: 201 Junior Member
    wasnt AU 29%?
  • MON824MON824 Registered User Posts: 166 Junior Member
    edited April 20
    @sdl0625 Yes. Their overall acceptance rate is 29%. The 26.2% regular decision (RD) acceptance rate is averaged with the 82.6% early decision 1 and 2 (ED1/ED2) one to get 29.0%.

    UMich did give their OOS and IS admit rates.

    Shouldn't they be broken out?
  • spayurpetsspayurpets Registered User Posts: 873 Member
    @PurpleTitan the UMich article was misleading; the OOS and IS break-outs were from last year. I checked them, and they match the Class of 2020 numbers.
  • PurpleTitanPurpleTitan Registered User Posts: 9,867 Senior Member
    ^ Huh, you're right. Thanks.

    When does Rice typically release their RD data and overall rate?
