On the way to Fall 2007

Well, it's been a long wait. The calendar has turned to July, and at this point, we have closed the wait list and filled the class. The following statistics will give you and idea of the class. We accepted about 80 students from the wait list. A great majority of those were from the College of Arts and Sciences. Overall, we offered to 37% of the applicants with a yield of 72%. About 73% of the students who are enrolling are from Virginia. 44% were enrolled in the Virginia Community College System. A little under half are rising second year students. 43 students are international. On the whole, the group of 586 is half female, half male.

If you have been admitted, please be sure to send us your spring grades as soon as possible. This will make orientation a smooth and stress free process.
