Class of 2012 by the Numbers


I've recently transitioned form working mainly with seniors to working mainly with juniors. This is a significant thing for a lot of reasons, but this year in particular it is unique because the junior class came to ElRo the same year that I did. I can't believe two and a half years has gone so quick! But, I thought this would be an appropriate time to share some preliminary numbers about the Class of 2012 and their college application process.

# of seniors currently on register at ElRo: 135
# of applications filed: 1154
Average # applications per student: 8.5
# of teacher recommendations written: 286
# of acceptances, so far: 442
Average SAT score, 2400 scale: 1812
Average SAT score, 1600 scale: 1201*
Average Composite ACT score: 26

*This is our first year where the average SAT score ended up above 1200 on the 1600 scale. 

I plan to post a full summary, along with the list of schools where students were admitted, in May.
