Profiles of Hofstra Prospective Applicants at Various Points in the Admissions Process. Report No. 112.
For the past two years Hofstra has participated in the College Entrance Examination Board's (CEEB) Admissions Testing Programs (ATP). Through this program, Hofstra has received summary statistics on the students who have requested that their SAT scores be sent to Hofstra, those who apply, and enrolled students. Normative data are also included for prospective applicants to all colleges and to other four-year private colleges to provide a perspective for determining unique characteristics of Hofstra prospective applicants. The profiles are based on responses to the Student Descriptive Questionnaire (SDQ), which provides information concerning student interests, backgrounds, activities, and educational plans. The main questions asked in this document have to do with the characteristics of: prospective applicants as compared to those of other four-year colleges and to other colleges in general; the accepted applications as compared to the enrolled; the enrolled as compared to the no-shows; and Hofstra applicants who requested financial aid as compared to the total group. In addition, each subgroup's profile can be compared with each other and all groups can be compared over time. These data provide much information that can be used for admissions criteria, financial aid policies, plans for academic programs, and particularly for recruitment purposes. (Author/KE)
