Class of 2021 admissions stats
I received an e-mail with some admissions stats for the Class of 2021:

THE CLASS OF 2021

Applications for admission: 18,063
Admission offers made: 2,865 (16% admission rate)
Admission offers accepted: 1,049 (as of 8/1/17) -- Yield = 36.6%

Texas residents: 436 (41.6%)
Non-Texas residents, including international citizens: 613
Countries represented: 21

29% Asian American, 29% White, 17% Hispanic, 11% International citizens, 7% Black, 5% Multiracial, <1% Native American and <1% Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander

- - - - -

Comparisons with previous two years:

Rice accepted 955 for the classes of 2019 and 2020. So this new class (2021) will be larger by nearly 100.

Applications are down a tiny bit: 18,063 vs 18,236 last year. But this year saw the 2nd most applications ever. (Previous 2nd: 17,942 had applied for the Class of 2019.)

Acceptance rate is about constant (15-16%), but yield (enrolled/accepted) is increasing: 33.4% (2019) => 34.3% (2020) = 36.6% (2021).

Asian and Hispanic students rising a little (2019-2020-2021): Asian: 26-25-29%; Hispanic: 13-16-17%.

Black & International students ~ constant at 6-7% and 11%, respectively.

Caucasian students down a little: 39% (2020) => 29% (2021). Multiracial up 3% (2020) => 5% (2021).

RE: Class of 2021 admissions stats
Very curious on the increase in those attending. I'm wondering if they just had a lot more accept than expected, given the number of offers is probably fairly equivalent.

But welcome to all of the new students, should they find their way here to participate in our robust support (and debate) on all things Rice, though particularly athletics.

Last year's yield (34.3%) would have given 983 freshmen.

The steadily increasing yield is, to me, the most encouraging number.

Excepting now they need to find nearly 100 more spaces on campus for freshman to live - which likely means upperclassmen being told they need to find space off campus to live after already making plans to live on campus.

And I say now, but obviously they've known of this "problem" since May (at the latest), so I'm sure it's already resolved.

I don't recall an explicit statement that they wanted to increase class sizes by yet another 100 students per year, which is why I do wonder if this wound up being a surprise.

It's good that more ultimately wanted to be at Rice. But it's not like on campus housing space is going to increase any time soon, which is why I question any "permanent" increase in class size.

I do think this may have been a one-time miscalculation, and not an intent to increase class size to 1050, 1100 or even more.

It happens every so often. It happened in 09? as well and like you said they just bump upperclassmen off. Think they give you a credit or something though.

RE: Class of 2021 admissions stats
I am surprised there is a relatively small percentage of Texas residents and relatively large percentage of Asians.

The Texas resident quotient is on par with previous classes. The Asian % seems a little bit higher than usual, but not too much.

International pretty much means Asian as well. Countries other than China and Korea end up with 1 student each, so the incoming class is ~40% Asian.

RE: Class of 2021 admissions stats
Really! That is terrible. No wonder the athletic program has no chance of creating excitement in the student body. Has it always been this lopsided? The Asian students no doubt have the tools to graduate from Rice but what else have they done such as volunteering in the community and involvement in student affairs. I thought this was a requirement before even being considered to come to Rice ? Most Asian students I know are great students but do not contribute anything else to the University while at Rice.

Terrible indeed! I can see why the athletics department might not be so keen on all the international students, especially considering the nearly 30 international student-athletes who represent our school.

Right because Asian people don't like sports. We've never met but I'm Asian, btw. I've been organizing the Houston Football Watch parties for the last 3 years, I volunteer to mentor and review resumes at the Career expos every year and I am involved in various alumni affinity groups. I also donate to Owl Club every year and apparently I am only about 1 of around 1000 alumni who donate yearly to Owl Club. I could just as easily say where the white people at??

What do YOU contribute to Rice besides posting about how International students don't contribute to Rice? Not to mention they pay full boat so others can get a subsidized education. Basketball is pretty popular in China, chances are if they like basketball in China they probably would like watching it here, except for old alums who want to tell them they are not welcome.

This year's e-mail did not have academic stats. But here's what was in last year's (Class of 2020) message:

Quote:The middle 50% test score ranges of admitted students represent the highest scores in Rice's history. (* denotes highest possible score in the range)

SAT Critical Reading: 710-800*
SAT Math: 740-800*
SAT Writing: 700-790
ACT Composite: 33-35
