Does anyone know where to find the Common Data Set for Harvey Mudd
for 2010-2011?

    Common Data Set

    Or just go to the HM website and search for it.

    The latest year that is given is 2009-2010.
    I am looking for 2010 to 2011.

    Here is the link to the Registrar's Statistics

    Registrar's Statistics
  • twocollegetwocollege Registered User Posts: 133 Junior Member
    The registrar's statistics are interesting. I was actually interested in
    admissions data which can be found in the common data set.

    This is part of what I had in mind. Thank you very much.
    Do you mind telling me where you found this info?

    I am also interested in similar information about the students who chose to attend.
    This info is usually given in the Common Data Set.
  • PHSPhilipPHSPhilip Registered User Posts: 34 Junior Member
    "I am also interested in similar information about the students who chose to attend."

    Seeing as it's still April, I assume that won't be available yet for this year's admissions
  • AnthroponomistAnthroponomist Registered User Posts: 121 Junior Member
    It's off the admitted student's webpage. It's still April...the universal candidate's reply date is May 1st. They won't have info up about who chooses to attend for a while.
  • twocollegetwocollege Registered User Posts: 133 Junior Member
    It would appear that Harvey Mudd is no longer posting the Common Data Set
    but perhaps someone can point me to a source that may have the information I am seeking.

    I am interested in the data on the SAT which gives the number of students
    who score between 500 and 600, 600 and 700 and 700 to 800
    on the Math, Reading and Writing Sections.

    There are some schools that appear to not want to give out such information.
    Harvard for one does not. MIT and Caltech do give out this info and Harvey Mudd has in the past but I cannot find it for the last year.
  • nemomnemom Registered User Posts: 1,607 Senior Member
    I imagine Mudd will post the data set for this year later. It isn't complete yet, after all.
    Here is last year's data.

    Thanks Nemom but I think that data is from 2009-2010.

    The data that I am looking for is for 2010-2011.
  • iforgot37iforgot37 Registered User Posts: 124 Junior Member
    They probably don't have any data out yet for 2010-2011 because it's only been 8 days since everyone accepted their admission and they're still busy taking people off the waitlist.
  • twocollegetwocollege Registered User Posts: 133 Junior Member
    The 2010-2011 year is for this academic year. It includes data for those admitted last year.
    The students who are admitted this year would be included in data for 2011-2012.
    For example this website gives the common data sets for MIT
    which includes 2010-2011

    MIT Office of the Provost, Institutional Research

    Harvey mudd has this website

    Common Data Set

    but it only has data from 2007-2008, 2008-2009 and 2009-2010
  • twocollegetwocollege Registered User Posts: 133 Junior Member
    The common data set for 2010-2011 has now been posted.

    In many ways it is quite similar to the previous year but
    there has been a slight shift in the percentage of students who have scores in the 600-699
    range on the Math SAT from 5% to 9%. This is certainly a few percentage points larger than
    in the last several years. It is unclear whether this will be a change that will repeat
    for the incoming class but may be a reflection of the school looking for a wider range of
    talents. MIT is similar but Caltech only matriculates two or three students with these scores.

    It would appear given the changes in the core that Mudd does do a good job trying
    to help students who although very strong perhaps need a little more help with the rigorous
    core.

    twocollege--
    Could you expound a bit more on your interpretations of this data, esp as it relates to schools like Harvey Mudd, MIT, and Caltech? Expand on your observation about Mudd's efforts to help students to get through the rigorous core. Thank you.
