Class of 2011 Statistics

According to the Middlebury website, the class of 2011 (damn we're getting old) has created some fascinating figures. So fascinating, that they have been taken off the Middlebury homepage:

  • A record 7,188 students applied to Middlebury College for approximately 600 spots in the class of 2011.
  • The number of applicants has jumped 38 percent since 2005; there was a 16 percent increase over last year and an 18 percent increase in 2006 over 2005.
  • Middlebury has decreased the loan portion of a student’s financial aid package by up to $2,500 beginning with the class of 2011.
  • The number of applicants who identify themselves as students of color has risen 72 percent since 2005; there was a 37 percent increase over last year.
  • The number of international student applicants increased 27 percent.
  • The acceptance rate is 23 percent.
  • 78 percent of applicants used the electronic application.

Does the reduced loan policy apply for the class of 2010 as well? I mean for the remaining 3 academic years.

Unfortunately that is a no. Starting 2011 and continuing on there will be a reduction in the loan policy.

on the books...
