UVA received 3100 deposits for Class of 2013

<p>FYI, 3170 is the target number.</p>

<p>3170 was the target for the last few classes. They bumped it up to 3240 for this year.</p>

<p>Most schools around our size lose about a hundred students during the summer for various reasons. It's called "summer melt" and most schools bring in extra students so that the melt will bring the class to the target number. Admission offices don't always try to hit the target on the nose.</p>

<p>So--- although math is not my strong suit, does that mean that you will likely admit somewhere between 140 and 240 from the waitlist?</p>

<p>I have the idle curiosity whether the yield was higher for in-state or out-of-state or international (obviously no need-to-know here). I'm still surprised that the results were pretty close to projections, what with all the uncertainty. I suppose every year there is always something to deal with....</p>

<p>Does anybody know the final number of enrolled Jefferson Scholars for next year? I know the number of offers and expected scholarships was cut this year, and wondered what the final number was. I know of one winner who was undecided right near the end whether to accept it or not.</p>

<p>The yield for in-state students is always higher (about 70%) but Dean J can confirm this.</p>

<p>So they will be offering another 140 spots approximately... Time for students to send in supporting materials!</p>

<p>I bet they make more than 140 offers - not everyone will take it, plus I'm sure there are some people who made deposits who will get accepted off a waitlist of another school and free up a spot.. Good luck to all the waitlisters who really want to attend!!!</p>

<p>My S walks around the house with the telephone tethered to his waist hoping for "the" call. Fingers crossed.</p>

<p>Presumably the offers to wait-listed people also depend on their target field of study, such as the College vs. Engineering vs. Commerce vs. whatever. I wonder if there were significant differences in yield by area.</p>

<p>First years can't apply to the Comm School, so it's impossible for a wait-listed first year to get off the waitlist like that. If anything, it's the A-school, the E-school, the Nursing School and CLAS.</p>

<p>I don't think it does. The target number is higher than the actual number of students they expect. Wait listed students probably wont get in unless the number of students who withdraw exceeds the expectation (~100)</p>
