Fact Sheet

<p>I was wondering if the test scores found on the fact sheet found at <a href="http://enrollment.rochester.edu/admissions/res/pdf/factsheet.pdf%5B/url%5D"&gt;http://enrollment.rochester.edu/admissions/res/pdf/factsheet.pdf&lt;/a> represent those of enrolled or admitted students? Most schools post admitted students scores on their main sheet, but scores of enrolled students can be found on their common data set. However, for some reason, UR does not post a common data set.</p>

<p>URHopeful,</p>

<p>That Fact Sheet represents enrolled students from last year's application pool.</p>

<p>Here is the enrolled student data reported on NCES (National Center for Educational Statistics)</p>

<p>College Navigator/NCES has a wealth of other information about the school: graduation and retention rates, popularity of various majors, financial aid and a a bunch of other topics.</p>

<p>Thank you for the replys. Thats a very useful website outwest!</p>

I have just noticed that on UR's website at University</a> of Rochester : Fast Facts it says that the test scores are for admitted students. Since they are apparently for enrolled students, this appears to be a misleading error. This might be worth fixing, since enrolled students test scores are typically noticeably lower than admitted students, and some strong students could be discouraged from applying to UR as because it may appear to have lower averages than it actually does, making the school appear "below them" when it is actually not.</p>

<p>Thanks for pointing out this continuity error. We have updated the website to note that the statistics are actually representing our enrolled student numbers.</p>
