Please feel free to look at this. It's an updated version of what I received at Wes upon arriving for a campus tour. :-). It has everything-- from median SAT scores for the Class of 2011 to a breakdown of the many people that are attending.

    I have a question regarding SAT "percentiles." When it says that 25% have an average of 670 CR, that means that 25 percent of admitted students had lower or equal to a 670, 75% had lower or equal to a 760, and 25% had higher than a 760?

    you're correct. 25% had lower/equal than 670 CR, etc... what you said

    Well, 670-760 is the "middle 50%" for admitted (not enrolled) students. So, 25% had below 670; 50% between 670 and 760; and 25% above 760. (That also means 75% had 760 or below.)

    That's a pretty big jump in selectivity and applications over the past ten years. Time to work on getting my SAT verbal up. My math is in range, I think.
