University of Virginia Receives 16,280 Applications; Extends Offers to 4,876 Students for Class of 2010

AFTER THE REVIEW OF 16,280 applications for admission — the largest applicant pool in seven years — the University of Virginia mailed out 4,876 offers to Class of 2010 hopefuls on March 31. This number is in addition to the 953 students who were admitted in December as part of U.Va.’s early-decision program. And instead of waiting for snail mail, more than 85 percent of the successful applicants were able to learn of the University’s decision through a secure Web site because they had applied to U.Va. electronically.
