Kramer, Rena; And Others
This report concerns the residential distribution of first-time freshmen applicants to the City University of New York (CUNY) in 1969, before the implementation of the open admissions policy, and in 1970 and 1972, after it. The report also includes information on the allocation and enrollment of first-time freshmen applicants in the most recent of those years, 1972. Results include: (1) There was a 55% increase in first-time freshmen applicants to CUNY from 1969 to 1972. (2) Of all applicants for matriculated status in fall 1972, 73% were allocated to the college of their first choice. (3) For all residential areas, the lower the income, the greater the increase in applications from 1969 to 1972. (4) Among applicants with a college admissions average below 70%, there was a substantial increase in the number of applications after the implementation of the open admissions policy. Appendices include tables displaying: 1970 population characteristics for zip areas and boroughs; number of enrollees allocated to the college of their first choice; and data concerning out-of-city applicants.
