diversity

<p>according to the emory webpage the population is 24% asian. isn't that an extremely high number?</p>

<p>it is a high number but a lot of the top schools have a big population of asian people. a great deal of the asians that i have talked to are international students though so that might have something to do with it. emory is ranked second i think by a Black magazine for having good diversity and the class of 2010 is even more diverse than all previous years. diversity here is really not an issue anymore i think.</p>

<p>will it hurt me to be a white female from ct? which is considered completely not diverse?</p>

<p>i don't think it will hurt you much. the current freshmen class has 55% which will help you and only 8% from new england which will also help you. i don't think that you are at a disadvantage and if your location/gender will have any effect it will be beneficial.</p>

<p>Emory is 57% female, according to college board. I don't understand your logic about the advantage a female has in the admissions process, when most colleges like a 50/50 ratio.</p>

<p>Yes, there are many asians at Emory. It is common to overhear students speaking an Asian language -- Korean, mostly, I think.</p>

<p>well, according to emory's own website <a href="http://www.emory.edu/ADMISSIONS/about/class-profile.htm%5B/url%5D"&gt;http://www.emory.edu/ADMISSIONS/about/class-profile.htm&lt;/a>
our class is 55 - 45 female male ratio. imo this means that the school does not see a problem taking more women and therefore being a girl from ct would not hurt you and might possibly help. possibly.</p>

<p>After rechecking the stats, I realize the female percentage listed on college board (57%) is for first year students only. I stand corrected.</p>

<p>I wish Emory (and ALL colleges) would release the statistical data for their rejects and nonenrolling admits. As in, what percentage of the total applicant pool is female, what is the average SAT score for rejects, etc. Such information would be extremely helpful to those students applying to college. Everyone would have a clearer picture of what does/does not matter and in what way it matters.</p>

<p>Blaze, that kind of transparency is advocated by a lot of people... but I wouldn't hold my breath. Information (in its many varied forms and definitions) is shared with no consistency or not shared at all. Unless a school feels that it is served well by disclosing more information, I think we'll continue to see the status quo.</p>

<p>On the other hand, there is some statistical data that is available if you take a look at a school's Common Data Set. See Section C of any school's CDS. </p>

<p>Here's Emory Common Data Set 2005-2006:
