Statistics on first gen?

<p>I am writing an essay on this topic for school, and I was wondering if anyone could tell me where to find statistics on the percentage of first-generation college students in last year's class at the Ivies, Stanford, and other elite schools? What percentages of such students applying were admitted? Also, where could I find what percentage of first-generation students score above 1400 on the SAT? Thanks!</p>

<p>i dont think such exists</p>

<p>Princeton has it on the back of their thing. Im SURE you can find it if u looked hard enough. P-ton : about 7% was first generation.</p>

<p>Thanks a lot!</p>

<p>You must remember at Princeton that will only be about 81-82 students out of 1166 which fall in that 1st generation category. (Quick facts)</p>

<p>Also, where could I find what percentage of first-generation students score above 1400 on the SAT?</p>

<p>That information may be extremely difficult to find becaue it is usually not given in those terms. If you check the common data set for the schools in question , you may get a snapshot of the admitted class as a whole in respects to what % of the admitted class had SATs over 1400</p>

<p>Princeton's can be found at</p>

<p>For Dartmouth- look in the office of institutional research</p>

<p>all others, go to their website - type in common data set in search</p>

<p>the most recent information is for academic year 2003/04</p>

<p>Hope this helps</p>

<p>Thanks a lot! 81-82 actually seems like quite a lot, so, this may hurt my research.</p>
