4/11/01: Amherst newspaper: "Amherst Admission receives 5,170 apps for 
Class of 2005, 19% admitted".  The College accepted 967 applicants (19%), in 
hopes that the Class of 2005 will have 420 students matriculate. The average 
SAT verbal score was 718 and the average math was 707. They included 125 
African-Americans, 97 Latino/as, 143 Asian-Americans, three Native Americans, 
51 international students and 59 students of mixed heritage. He noted that the 
average applicant SAT scores (682 verbal, 681 math) were only slightly lower 
than those of the admitted students.

Whites and others: 66.6% of the applicants, 66% of the acceptances 
2/22/01 Brown Daily Herald,  Brown University received 16,500 applications for 
the Class of 2005.  The race of 13,500 applicants have been determined.  
Asian Americans were 20.3% (2748/13500), African American 6% (821/13,500), 
Latino 7.1% (959/13,500), Native American 0.6% (80/13,500), and Whites and 
others 66%.  The remaining 3000 applicants should have the same percentages 
for each racial group because they were selected at random.  Brown had an 
acceptance rate of 15% for the total applicant group for the Class 2004.
4/3/01 Brown Daily Herald: "Overall admission rate rises to 16 percent for 2005," 
The overall admit rate to Brown rose slightly this year to 16%. The College 
Admission Office received 11,350 regular action applications, which combined 
with the early action pool to total 16,601.  Of these, 2,637 students were admitted, 
with the admission office anticipating a size of 1,370 for the class of 2005.  The 
middle 50th percentile SAT scores were 660-770 on the verbal section and 670-
770 on the math section.  35% are students of color: 9% African-American, 16% 
Asian-American, 9% Latino American and 1% Native American.  42% of the 
students are white and the remainder did not identify their ethnicity or are foreign 
4/11/01 Columbia Daily Spectator: "Undergrad Admit Rates Continue To Decline.
Columbia still third most selective Ivy with 14.2% combined admit rate."  The 
combined admissions rate for Columbia College and the Fu Foundation School of
Engineering and Applied Sciences Class of 2005 was 14.2%, with the College 
accepting 1,720 out of 14,094 applicants, or 12.2%, and SEAS accepting 647 out
of 2463 applicants for an admit rate of 26.3%.  Last year Columbia College 
accepted 13% of its 13,500 applicants, and SEAS accepted 26% of its 2,450
applicants.  The average SAT score of the students who were accepted to join 
Columbia College's Class of 2005 rose to 1425.  35% identified themselves as 
students of color. 
5/24/01 Cornell Chronicle: "Undergrad admission is more selective for incoming 
fall class," Admission to Cornell for fall 2001 has become even more selective, 
with an overall undergraduate admit rate of 25.7%. The university received a total 
of 21,518 applications for fall 2001. A total of 5,522 applicants were admitted, 
with 42.6% of early decision applicants admitted and only 23.3% of regular 
decision applicants admitted. 30% of all admitted students are people of color, 
including African-Americans, Hispanics, Native Americans and Asian/Asian 
Americans. African-American admitted students represent 6.2%, Hispanic 
students 6% and Asian/Asian-American students 17.5%.
4/4/01 The Dartmouth: "Admissions mails letters to '05s today," 22.8% of 
applicants received letters of acceptance. 764 students of color make up 34.5% 
of those admitted. The acceptance rates of both Asian Americans and Native 
Americans are at record levels, although the number of African American students 
declined due to a smaller pool of applicants. The number of Latino students 
admitted exceeds last year and is the second highest in history.  Depending on the
yield, this large group of minority students admitted offers the potential of enrolling 
the most diverse class ever to matriculate at the College. The 158 international 
students admitted also make up the highest such number ever. Average SAT 
scores are similar to last year's. Math scores are identical at 721 and verbal 
scores declined slightly to 713. The 135 legacy students admitted is a greater 
number than the corresponding numbers in recent years.
4/11/01 The Dartmouth: "Admit It"  For the class of 2005, average SAT scores 
are down slightly, and the number of applicants is down significantly from 10,165 to 
5/4/01 The Dartmouth: "2005 enrollment sets records," The 335 students of color, 
who make up 28.4% of the preliminary Class of 2005, represent a jump from last 
year's numbers, when only 22.8% of the Class of 2004 were minorities. But the 
Class of 2005 is not quite as diverse as the current sophomores, 28.8% of whom 
are of color.  Dean of Admissions and Financial Aid Karl Furstenberg said, "We 
have the highest number of African-Americans in six or seven years, and the 
highest number of Asian-Americans in Dartmouth history."  The number of black 
applicants has declined 33 from the Class of 2004.  But just as the number of 
Asian-Americans applying to the College increased significantly this year, so too 
did the amount that decided to enroll.  Asian-Americans comprise 12.1% of the 
Class of 2005, compared to 8.4% of the Class of 2004.  The SAT verbal mean 
dropped five points to 703, a change Furstenberg attributed to the rise in students 
for whom English is a second language, and the SAT math mean stayed constant 
at 712.  The enrollment of 74 international students, or 6.3% of the class, is 
significantly higher than that of the past three years, when the level had not risen 
above 5%.
4/5/01 Duke Chronicle: "Near-record applications make 2005 most selective,"
Duke admitted 3,583 students, including early decision admittees, for the Class of
2005, with a 24.5% admit rate.  This year, 14,647 students applied to Duke, the
most since 1987.  45% of the admitted students are expected to matriculate.  The
number of Asian applicants rose by 5%, Latino applicants jumped by 15%, and
black applicants rose by about 6%.

4/3/01 MIT newspaper: "MIT Admits 1,632 Applicants For Freshman Class of 
Only 16% of the 10,511 students who applied, or 1,632 students, were admitted.
At 1,000 students, the target size for the class of 2005 is the same as the target
for last year.  Early action numbers stay steady.  588 students, or 36% of the total
number of admissions, were admitted early action. This is roughly the same 
number as have been admitted early action in previous years.  Over the past 30 
years, early enrollment has consistently been limited to 30% of the class or less.  
The only quota for admissions is a restriction on the number of foreign citizens 
who are not permanent residents of the United States. This group is limited to 8% 
of the freshman class, or approximately 100 students.  The mean SAT verbal 
score was 724, and the mean math score was 760. The admitted mean 
composite ACT score was a 32. 
4/9/01 Princetonian: "University sends Class of 2005 acceptances": Princeton 
accepted 1,675 of 14,287 applicants for the Class of 2005 -- an 11.7% 
acceptance rate, slightly lower than the 12.2% rate for the Class of 2004.  
Students of color make up 35% of the acceptances and 8% of the 1,675 lucky 
high schoolers are non-Americans.

3/30/01 Stanford Report: "Stanford offers admission to 2,416 for the Class of 
Stanford will make offers of admission to 2,416 students for the Class of 2005. 
Only 12.7% of the 19,078 applicants for fall 2001 were offered admission, 
compared with 13.2% for fall 2000 and 15% for fall 1999. At the same time, 
applications have increased from 18,338 last year and 17,917 the year before. 
The target for the freshman class this year is 1,630 students and 6,560 for the 
entire undergraduate population. Half -- or 49.9% -- represent minority groups: 
11.7% are African American, 22.9% are Asian American, 13.0% are Mexican 
American/Chicano and 2.3% are Native American/Native Hawaiian. In addition, 
international students make up 5.3% of the admitted class. Although 
standardized test scores are considered in Stanford's admissions process, 
Dean of Admission and Financial Aid Robin Mamlet says the university prioritizes 
evidence of intellectual vitality through such activities as in-depth study in areas of 
personal interest, independent and sponsored research, and challenging 
coursework. Sixteen of Stanford's admitted applicants, for instance, are Intel 
Science Talent Search finalists.
4/5/01Swarthmore newspaper: "Acceptance rate rises for 2005": Out of a total
applicant pool of more than 3,500 people, 889 were admitted to the college, an 
acceptance rate of about 25%.  The percentage of admitted students of color
remained strong at 43%, though falling slightly from last year's figure of 45%.  
Asian Americans continued to make up the largest percentage at 19%, with
African Americans 10%, Latino/a students 13% and 1% listed as "Native 
American/Hawaiian/Other."  Acting Dean of Admissions Jim Bock said that the
yield of students of color will probably bring the percentage of students of color 
who actually attend to about 33%, similar to the class of 2004. 
4/4/01: University of California at Berkeley newspaper: Berkeley offers admission 
to 8,707 high school seniors.  The number of students admitted increased from 
8,343 last year to 8,707 this year.  The 1,013 Chicano and Latino students 
admitted this year represent 11.9% of admitted students, up from 10.8%.  The 
number of African-American students offered admission increased from 301 last 
year to 313 this year. African Americans represent 3.7 % of students admitted.  
The number of Asian-American students offered admission increased from 3,225 
last year to 3,336 this year.  Asian Americans represent 39.1% of students 
admitted.  White students offered admission increased from 2,767 last year to 
2,872 this year. Whites represent 33.7% of students admitted.  American Indian 
students offered admission increased from 43 last year to 56 this year, 
representing 0.7 percent of students admitted.  The campus received an 
unprecedented number of applications, 36,000 for the fall 2001 freshman class. 
Approximately 24% of applicants were offered admission, with the aim of 
enrolling 3,880 students.
4/4/01 Daily Cal: "More Women, Underrepresented Minorities Admitted to UC 
System" UC Berkeley admitted more students in every ethnic group to the fall 
2001 class. The campus admitted 1,013 Latino students this year, up more than 
15% from last year. Native American students increased from 43 to 56, and 12 
more black students were admitted than last year, bringing the number to 313. 
White and Asian students also increased slightly, but both groups comprise 
similar percentages of the total admitted freshmen as last year. UC Berkeley 
admitted 17% more underrepresented minority students than last year, almost 
matching the 1997 admissions rate, the last class admitted under affirmative 
action before race preferences were removed from the admissions process. 
UC Berkeley, however, still admits significantly fewer underrepresented 
minorities than it did in 1997. It admitted only 25% of all students that applied this 
year. The freshmen admitted for next fall are the first to be admitted under the 4% 
plan, which guarantees the top 4% of California high school seniors admissions 
to one of the UC campuses. Using application data, the university predicted 
that approximately 2,100 students applied under the 4% plan that might not have 
otherwise been eligible for admission to a UC campus. About half of that number 
were underrepresented minority students.
4/3/01 press release: "UCLA Releases New Freshman Admissions,": "UCLA 
announced today that approximately 10,735 prospective freshmen have received 
letters of admission for fall 2001, compared to 10,945 who were admitted last 
year.  The 2001 freshman class was selected from a record 40,676 applicants to 
UCLA.  Preliminary admissions data show that underrepresented students: 
"African Americans, Chicanos/Latinos and American Indians" make up 14.6% 
(1,630) of the admitted freshman domestic class, up from 14% last year (1,570). 
While the combined total of underrepresented students admitted to UCLA 
increased over last year, that increase was due mainly to the number of admitted 
Chicanos/Latinos. Admissions data show that Chicanos/Latinos comprise 11% of 
the admitted domestic class, up from 10.3% in fall 2000.  UCLA admitted 1,277 
Chicanos/Latinos for fall 2001, compared with 1,179 last fall.  Among African 
Americans, UCLA experienced a decline in the number and percentage of 
students admitted.  This year, UCLA admitted 305 African Americans, down 
from 342 last fall. African Americans make up 3.2% of the admitted class, down 
from 3.3% last year.  The number of American Indians decreased slightly.  For 
fall 2001, UCLA admitted 48 American Indian students, compared with 49 last 
fall.  Native Americans constitute 0.5% of the admitted freshman class.  In other 
categories, a total of 4,315 Asian Americans (40.6%) were admitted as 
freshmen this fall, compared with 4,392 (41.5%) for fall 2000.  Admitted 
white/Caucasian students total 3,432 (34.2%), down from last fall's 3,664 (34.3%).  
Among those students who declined to state their race or ethnicity, UCLA 
admitted 955 (8.6%), up from 918 (8.4%).  Another 172 students (1.7%) who 
identified themselves as "other" were admitted for fall 2001, a decrease from last 
year's total of 185 (1.8%).  Of the 10,735 domestic and foreign students admitted, 
UCLA expects to enroll 4,200 freshmen for fall 2001.  Other recently released 
admissions data show that: The academic qualifications of admitted students are 
increasing each year.  The average GPA of admitted students is 4.23, up from 
4.16 in fall 2000.  The average SAT score for the fall 2001 admitted class is 
1,328, increasing slightly from last fall's 1,327.  Note: Fall 2001 figures are 
extracted from March 27 admissions files and do not reflect final figures.  The 
figures for fall 2000 are official and final figures.  Admissions numbers will 
change slightly, as several cases are still under review.
2/12/01 The Daily Pennsylvanian (www.dailypennsylvanian.com)
Penn received 19,086 total applications, a 1.5 percent increase from last year. 
Applications climb higher once again.  The University of Pennsylvania received 
19,086 applications for the Class of 2005.  31% of the applicants are Asian, 
5% are Hispanic and 6% are black and African American. 
4/10/01 The Daily Pennsylvanian: "The Class of 2005 is the most competitive in 
University history. Acceptance rate hits record-low 21.5%,"  The University of 
Pennsylvania accepted 2,968, 18.2% of regular decision applicants.  21.5% of 
this year's 19,150 total applicants were accepted.  A total of 4,124 students 
have been admitted for the class of 2005 in both the early and regular admission 
processes, down from the 4,313 admitted last year.  Last year the yield rate of 
admitted students matriculating was 55.5%.  Of the students admitted, about half 
are women and 37% are minorities. Of alumni legacy applicants, 360 students 
were admitted.  The average SAT score of the admitted class stayed exactly the 
same as last year, at 1412. The average verbal score is 696, and the average 
math score is 716. There was a slight increase in the average SAT II score to 
710 from 708. 

4/25/01 The Daily Pennsylvanian: "Admit rates drop across Ivy League: 
Dartmouth was the only school among the Ancient Eight to accept at a 
higher rate for next year�s class,"
Admission rates hit record lows this year.  Harvard made the most stringent 
selections this year, admitting only 10.7% of their applicants to next year's class.  
Class of 2005 hopefuls also faced tougher odds at Penn, Yale, Cornell, Princeton, 
Columbia and Brown universities, which all offered acceptances at lower rates 
than last year.  Dartmouth, which had seen fewer applicants over the past few 
years, admitted at a greater rate this year.  Penn accepted a record low 21.5%,
or 4,124 of its 19,150 applicants this year.  Harvard, which received 19,009 
applications, admitted 2,042 students, making it the most selective of the Ivy 
League schools.  With an 11.7% acceptance rate, Princeton was the second 
most selective.  It admitted 1,675 of its 14,287 applicants.  Princeton's admission 
rate fell from last year's 12.2%.  Yale, Columbia and Brown also had acceptance 
rates in the teens with 13.5, 14.3 and 15.9 percent, respectively.  Yale admitted 
2,000 of 14,809 applicants, for a record-low acceptance rate.  Columbia offered 
spots to 2,367 of the 16,557 hopefuls for their class of 2005 and Brown sent 
acceptances to 2,639 of its 16,602 applicants.  Cornell reduced its acceptance 
rate by almost 5% to 25.6% from last year's 30.5%. It admitted 5,512 of its 
21,518 applicants.  Dartmouth saw a marked decrease in the number of 
applicants this year to 9,719 from 10,165 and increased their rate of acceptance 
to 22.8% from 21.4% last year.  Dartmouth admitted 2,219 of its applicants.

4/9/01 Princetonian: "University sends Class of 2005 acceptances": Princeton 
accepted 1,675 of 14,287 applicants for the Class of 2005 -- an 11.7% 
acceptance rate, slightly lower than the 12.2% rate for the Class of 2004.  
Students of color make up 35% of the acceptances and 8% of the 1,675 lucky 
high schoolers are non-Americans.

From July 19, 2001 e-mail:
Dear Mr. Joe,

This is in response to your recent email request for the statistics on the
number of Asian- American applicants to the United States Air Force Academy

Please be aware the United States Air Force Academy has a different
admissions system than other selective universities.  We are required under
Title 10 of the U.S. Code to select students from each state as nominated by
their U.S. Senators and Members of Congress.  Thus other highly selective
schools may rely primarily upon grade point averages and standardized test
scores and select only those students with the highest overall GPAs and
standardized test scores.  However, USAFA must select the best qualified
students within each congressional district, so long as they meet the minimum 
entrance requirement standards.  Along with academics, those
standards include medical requirements and the ability to pass a strenuous
physical fitness exam.  Further, as one of the nation's premier leadership
training institutions, we expect our candidates to participate in extracurricular 
activities (athletic and non-athletic) and be involved in their communities.  
Accepting students from each state impacts the average GPA and standardized 
scores overall at USAFA.  It should also be noted that the Academy does not give 
preferential consideration to any minority group in terms of admission; each 
student is looked at based upon merit and nomination from an authorized source.

The following data is for our current freshman class:

4/2/01 University of Virginia Cavalier Daily: "University mails acceptance letters"  
Of 14,085 applicants,  4,516 were accepted to the class of 2005.  In November, 
the University notified 917 early decision applicants of their acceptance. 
Admissions officials also sought students who are civic-minded and artistically 
talented. Other key factors that were considered were teacher and counselor 
recommendations as well as the ethnicity of the applicant, Dean of Admissions 
John Blackburn said.  The class entering the University in 2000 boasted a 
median SAT I of 1310.  Blackburn said he believes the profile of the class 
entering in 2001 will be very similar.

chose to attend Yale, held about steady -- it was 65% this year and 66% last year.  
The average SAT score for the class was 1450.
4/5/01 Yale Daily News: "Record-low admit rate for '05: University looks to enroll 
class of 1,300 from 2,000 acceptances".  With a record 14,809 applications and 
a 50-person cut in class size to deal with the University's housing crunch, 
admission to Yale is tighter this year than ever before. Including the 526 students 
admitted early decision, the University is welcoming a select 2,000 students to 
the Class of 2005 -- for a record-low 13.5% admit rate.  The target freshman 
class size for next year is 1,300, and last year 66% of admitted students chose to
attend the University. If that matriculation rate holds true this year, 1,320 freshmen 
will attend Yale in the fall.
4/11/01 Yale Daily News: "Ivy admit rates fall to new lows,"  Yale accepted 2,000 of

and 42% of Yale's acceptances are students of color.  4/18/01 Yale Daily News:  
About 42% of students in Yale's admitted Class of 2005 are of color, but not all 
admitted students will chose to come.  About 29% of students who actually joined 
Yale's Class of 2003, for example, identified themselves as minorities.
