BS Class of 2013 Matriculation Stats

<p>CC'ers love stats. If anyone is interested in posting their school's class of 2013 matriculation stats, here's the place. Below is the tabulation from the special commencement edition of Choate's "The News". This information reflects decision information as of May 24, 2103. Make of it what you will. (I have no clue what "Junior Hockey" means and apologize for the lack of alignment.)</p>

<p>Congratulations Choaties!</p>

<p>I heard 2013 was a rough year at HADES to get into Ivys and other top colleges.</p>

<p>Go Choate! Nice matriculation stats!</p>

<p>Choatie - the Exeter stats I have are not divided up the same way yours are, but they are on-line ( if someone wants to re-calculate.</p>

<p>Class size a little over 300:</p>

<p>Harvard 13
Yale 11
Princeton 7
Cornell 7
Dartmouth 2
Columbia 12
Brown 7
UPenn 9
Stanford 6
U Chicago 7
Duke 3
Cal Berkeley 5
Univ Michigan 7
USC, NYU, Tufts, WUSTL 3-5 each</p>

<p>That’s about 1/3 of the class. Where did the rest of 65% go?</p>

<p>Full college matriculations are found here:

Class size: about 325
Harvard: 17
Yale: 15
Princeton: 5
Stanford: 8
MIT: 3
Penn: 16
Columbia: 13
Brown: 9
Dartmouth: 4
Cornell: 11
Georgetown: 14</p>


<p>I’ve taken the liberty of doing the same analysis for Exeter as I did for Choate, but using the matriculation data printed in the commencement issue of The Exonian and, again, using USNWR ranking data, FWIW. Don’t rely too heavily on the male/female splits as I had to guess gender on many of the names (as I did in the Choate data, too, so assume that I guessed equally right/wrong in both cases where first or middle names didn’t obviously identify gender). Also, Exeter indicated “alternative year” or “defer” where Choate only indicated “gap” year.</p>

<p>Congratualtions, Exonians!</p>

<p>This thread will not be of much value if people only post numbers of students attending a handful of schools. Even if the commencement publications don’t include every student (late decisions and such), they at least give the broad picture.</p>

<p>ChoatieMom - thanks for doing all those calculations!</p>

<p>And congratulations to all our hard working graduates. We are proud of you!</p>

<p>Impressive list from both Choate and Exeter! Interesting how many kids end up at Top 10 LACs or Top 25 universities- that was totally our observation as well.</p>

<p>Sorry, that’s all I know for sure about Andover’s matriculation this year. Thought I’d share. It’s better than nothing. And based on this data only two lines of stats can be generated:
Ivy: 90
HYPSM: 48</p>

<p>Interesting thread and some additional matriculation statistics</p>

<p>[thread]1521486[/thread] Advantages to attending a super-difficult high School</p>



<p>Thomas Jefferson is a test entry math and science high school in Virginia</p>

<p>As a footnote to the Choate stats, 21.3% of the class of 2013 graduated cum laude; 41.5% of those students will matriculate to Ivies, 26.4% to HYPSM. (Slow weekend.)</p>

<p>@Choatie. I think your HYPSM ratio is off.</p>

<p>Your original post (Post #1) says 23 students went to HYPSM. Choate has a graduating class of ~250 so that puts your HYPSM maticulation rate at 9%.</p>

<p>While still impressive, it’s not the same as believing a quarter of the graduates are headed to HYPSM.</p>

<p>@Sharpener: The stats in post #13 were all referring to the students who graduated cum laude. About a quarter of THOSE students (the 21.3% of the graduating class) will matriculate to HYPSM. I was not referring to the percentage of the entire graduating class who chose those schools. I thought it was interesting to see where the students who graduated with distinction were headed.</p>


Interesting! I took a look at the same kind of data for Andover and found out that 20% of seniors graduated cum laude, and among them 43% are matriculating to HYPSM, or 66% to one of the Ivy League colleges, or 90% to one of the top 25 colleges as in US News (with the exception that 2 of them will be matriculating to the No 1 LAC).</p>

<p>What does it say? To me, it means colleges do recognize and appreciate stellar academic work in a rigorous school such as Andover. To put this into context, the overall HYPSM matriculation rate at Andover this year is 16% to 17%, and Ivy rate 31%. People like to talk about “hooks” in college admissions. What could be a bigger hook than this? That said, it’s worth noting that grades only may not be enough to get one in the most selective colleges. Another way to look at the data is that even in this group of high achievers, 57% didn’t make their ways to HYPSM. Excluding those who “chose not to”, there would probably still be a good number who “couldn’t”. To be more competitive, good grades must be earned on rigorous/challenging courses and standardized tests should be within reasonable range as well. On top of academics, meaningful ECs and leadership play a role and could easily be the tipping factor in the super competitive race.</p>

<p>Benley, agree with you, it was a good year for elite preps at HYPSM/Ivy all around (there is considerable variability year to year, which is why some schools only publish their running average last 3 years). This year overall seems better than last year.</p>

<p>Congrats to all those hard working Smurfs!</p>

<p>Andover actually had published 10 years of matriculation data year by year until last year, when the new director of college counseling changed the practice. In general I think the trend for hYPSM is stable but slightly going down in the long run with yearly fluctuation. For example, 2012 was a significant drop, which makes 2013 seem more impressive. For 3 or 5 year stats, check out</p>

<p>Andover’s full matriculation list for class 2013 is out, as summarized below:</p>

<p>Students counted: 312
HYPSM: 48, 15%
Ivies+SM: 103, 33%
US News top 25 univ. + top 15 LAC (including foreign schools in the top 40 of QS world univ. ranking): 187, 60%
US News top 50 univ. + top 30 LAC (including foreign schools in the top 40 of QS world univ. ranking): 247, 79%</p>

<p>Ivys + SM = 33%. So about 70% (210 students) are going to non-ivy + SM. This can be easily accomplished from their local schools by these top students coming out of their middle school. It is safe to conclude that your Ivy+SM chances are lowered by going to a large BS as Ivys don’t want to take too many kids from one school. Lesson learned, not to mention the cost of BS.</p>
