Characteristics of Enrollees and Non-Enrollees Among Freshmen, 1972.
Kramer, Rena; And Others
Based on data provided by the City University of New York (CUNY) University Application Processing Center, this report compares applicants to CUNY for admission in fall 1972 who were accepted and then enrolled with those who were accepted but did not enroll. Of the applicants who were accepted as fulltime, day-session freshmen matriculants, more than half (56% or 32,111 students) enrolled at the college to which they were allocated. Summary conclusions include: (1) Applicants were more likely to have higher college admissions averages (CAA) than those accepted for community colleges. (2) Nearly a quarter of the applicants to CUNY were eligible for special programs. (3) Applicants to the senior colleges were more likely to be allocated to the colleges of their first choice than were applicants to community colleges. (4) Applicants allocated to the senior colleges with CAA of 80% or above were far less likely to enroll in September than the rest. (Author/PG)
