Admissions Trends, 1975-80.
Tuttle, Ron
Admissions in North Carolina's private higher education institutions were examined using data from the fall of 1975 to fall 1980. These highlights emerged: (1) first-time freshman applications rose 29 percent in private universities and colleges in that period; (2) the percentage of freshman applications accepted declined from 69 percent in 1975 to 64 percent in 1980; (3) first-time enrolled freshmen increased seven percent; (4) the ratio of first-time freshmen who actually enrolled to the number accepted declined from 0.63 to 0.56 in that period; (5) institutions reported a more favorable position on each of the above measures than did the national sample of Minter and Bowen; and (6) the academic ability of entering freshmen, as measured by SAT scores and class rank, was generally maintained from 1975 to 1980. Accompanying the study's analysis are charts showing, for each institution, the numbers of applications, acceptance percentages, enrollments, enrollment rations, SAT scores and class ranks for first-time freshmen.
