Office of Admissions Blog Design by Rebecca Lim, Cavalier Daily Production Editor Newest first-year class maintains University’s academic excellence, demographic breakdown JULIA HOROWITZ senior writer Out-of-State: 35% Total number of complete applications received: 28,991 THE CLASS OF 2017: 56 percent of the incoming class is female, and 44 percent is male. As first-year students move into their dorms this weekend, they bring to Grounds more than 3,000 Wahoos who represent the University's standard caliber of academic achievement and a geographically and racially diverse crowd. The Class of 2017 averages an SAT math and verbal score of 1349, keeping close with the Class of 2016's 1350. Ninety-two percent of incoming students were in the top 10 percent of their high school classes. Racially, the group remains consistent with earlier classes as well. Sixty-one percent of the incoming class identifies as white, with the largest minority group remaining Asian Americans at 12 percent. Six percent of the class identifies as African-Amer- ican, 6 percent identifies as Hispanic-American, 0.1 percent identify as NativeAmerican and 4 percent identified as belonging to multiple races. In addition, 6 percent of the Class of 2017 is international. A further 6 percent chose not to classify themselves racially or ethnically. These numbers largely reflect the existing racial makeup of the University, though the admissions office in May said they expected the new class to increase Hispanic representation by up to 20 percent and overall representation of minorities to increase from 26.5 percent to 27.5 percent. The gender gap continues, as 56 percent of incoming students are female and 44 percent are male, according to the Office of Institutional Assessment and Studies. see 2017, page 3
