Profile of Admitted Freshmen
Fall 2014

Note, these are preliminary figures, as of April 9, 2014. Final numbers, including figures for enrolling students, will be available in November.

When we review our freshman applicants, we look at a wide variety of factors, some more easily quantifiable than others. Below are the primary academic factors we considered when we reviewed our freshman applicants for Fall Quarter 2014. There is no specific cutoff value assigned to any of the factors we consider.
