Girl to Guy ratio, class of 2014

<p>Looks like it's going to be around 50/50. What do you guys think?</p>

<p>For the class of 2013:</p>

<p>Males accepted: 447
Females accepted: 304</p>

<p>Males enrolled: 133
Females enrolled: 74</p>

<p>Class of 2014:</p>

<p>Males accepted: 312
Females accepted: 325</p>

<p>Also, the applicant pool went from 2205 to 2718 this year.
Yet they accepted over 100 less guys, but the number of girls accepted went up a little.. anyone find this interesting?</p>

<p>The 2014 facebook group also has quite a bit more females than males as well.</p>

<p>What do you guys think? Is the class of 2014 going to go down in history as one of the classes with the greatest female ratio?</p>

<p>woah!!
More than 100 people less accepted than last year's
and 135 guys less than last year's</p>

<p>that's a big change</p>

<p>nice! hope to see a roughly equal ratio this year ^^</p>

<p>It'll be interesting, but I haven't decided whether I'm happy about it or not.</p>

<p>this sucks for the guys who didn't get in, but a good news for those who did! :)</p>

<p>aww, the ratio shouldn't even out :(</p>

<p>yeah maruhan, because it's not like you don't already have scripps or anything. haha</p>

<p>more the better right??</p>

<p>for the guys, yeah. haha</p>

<p>But seriously.. the facebook group has significantly more girls than guys. What if there's more girls in our class than guys??! o_o</p>

<p>it's probably a possibility
even in CC, i noticed more girls than guys among prefrosh</p>

<p>as an alum i'm not quite sure what to make of this.</p>

<p>Who knows...</p>

<p>I am not expecting the guy/girl ratio to be 60/40, but I will be shocked if it turned out to be 50/50 or anything larger for the girls.</p>

I'm pretty sure the universe would implode.</p>

<p>mmm, I think I just disadded the facebook for harvey mudd. I'm not going, I'm a chick. Sure there'll be other girls going though.</p>

<p>Assuming the yields by gender are constant between the classes of 2013 and 2014, there will be 93 guys and 80 girls in the class of '14. That makes a gender ratio of 54/46, which is basically comparable to CMC or Notre Dame. </p>

<p>It's also interesting to note that there are 195 dorm spots set aside for Frosh, so in the above scenario, they could pull up to 22 off the waitlist. </p>

<p>Of course, I'd expect the yield rate to go up...</p>

<p>ohho, that's interesting, because 22 is the exact number of people at Mudd right now who have to live off campus next year! although a class of 173 seems kind of small, so they'd probably still pull people off the waitlist, and we'd still have a housing crunch next year. =/</p>

<p>It's not like each of those 22 people is being forced to live off campus. Some of them could have gotten rooms but decided they liked the $1000 housing discount more. And there's still that open double in Linde that nobody pulled!</p>

<p>how far is it from school living off-campus??</p>

<p>Not far at all. Probably 5-10 minute walk at most to campus. The distance is not an issue. Im my opinion, off-campus housing is undesirable because of the nature of Mudd. At many universities, a great deal of social interactions and events take place off campus. When there's more of a college-town feel, or even bigger campuses where things are much more spread out, there's less of a bubble. Mudd is very different from that. The vast majority of people do not hang out anywhere outside of campus with regularity. There's really not much of anything to do in Claremont, but the student body has everything it needs for entertainment and socialness on the campus itself. If you come to Mudd for reasons like me, loving the atmosphere and community and whatnot, off-campus housing totally takes you away from that. You can't wander outside to question why such loud noises are coming from West (again), or join a random game that's broken out on the quad, or run out during finals for 15 epic noisy minutes before going back to your studying, or be swept up in random dorm meetings and competitions. I like Mudd's personality, but it's very much enclosed within the confines of Mudd campus. Our bubble is fun. But if you're outside the bubble, it's much harder to participate in this fun. Being off-campus largely removes you from what makes Mudd so cool in my opinion.</p>

<p>Of course, some people, especially in the upper classes, are ready to quiet down or take a bit of a break, and have their own social groups well established enough that they don't feel as much of a need to be always in the large group things. You also get off the meal plan, which is very appealing to people who have been on the Hoch cycle for a few years. But for me as a rising sophomore, I'm not there yet, and I very much want to stay on the campus.</p>

<p>I'm also very used to living in a dorm that's at most a 3 minute walk from anything (yay inner dorms!) and that has made me quite lazy.</p>

<p>i see</p>

<p>I too want the loud, crazy bubble experience!
(in fact, i want to be in North or West!)</p>
