VIRGINIA STATE-CONTROLLED INSTITUTIONS OF HIGHER EDUCATION, FALL 1966. STUDENT ADMISSIONS, PART 1.
RAMSEY, ROBERT R.; AND OTHERS
IN ORDER TO COMPLY WITH LEGISLATIVE ACTION, THIS STUDY HAS BEEN PREPARED AS THE FIRST PART OF A PROPOSED TWO-PART SERIES DESCRIBING THE CHARACTERISTICS OF COLLEGE FRESHMEN IN VIRGINIA'S PUBLIC INSTITUTIONS OF HIGHER EDUCATION. ADMISSION APPLICATIONS FOR FALL, 1966, WERE RECEIVED FROM 30,996 FRESHMEN. SEVENTY PERCENT OF THE VIRGINIA APPLICANTS WERE IN THE UPPER HALF OF THEIR CLASS, AND 83 PERCENT WERE ACCEPTED. ALTHOUGH OUT-OF-STATE APPLICANTS RANKED HIGHER THAN VIRGINIA APPLICANTS IN CLASS STATUS AND COLLEGE BOARD SCORES, ONLY 43 PERCENT WERE ACCEPTED. TABLES INCLUDE DATA ON IN-STATE AND OUT-OF-STATE APPLICANTS, THE DISTRIBUTION OF 2-YEAR AND 4-YEAR APPLICATIONS AND MULTIPLE APPLICATIONS, CLASS RANK OF APPLICANTS, AND SAT VERBAL AND MATH SCORES OF APPLICANTS. IN ADDITION, THE ADMISSIONS POLICIES, PROCEDURES, AND MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS OF THE PUBLIC INSTITUTIONS SURVEYED ARE SUMMARIZED. (AL)
