"For the undergraduate class of 2012, the acceptance rate was 54%"

How do we know the acceptance rate for 2012 already? ???

It's only as accurate as people update it.

You're reading it wrong. The "class of X" usually means the year the class graduates. So the class of 2012 are the students who entered FAU in the 2008-2009 academic year.  :)

Correct.

Understand that the 54% includes a number of things from the class entering in Fall 2008. It's a little misleading.

In 2008:
- only 49% of high school seniors (first time in college freshmen) were admitted.
- 74% of community college transfers were admitted (Florida law basically says a CC transfer has to be admitted to a FL university)
- 51% undergrad transfers were admitted who applied from other universities.

When you do all the calculations for those three categories, you're looking at 54% acceptance for undergrad.

But since most people are interested in how many high school seniors were admitted, you're really looking at an acceptance rate to FAU of 49% out of high school.

One of the reasons it was chosen is because the Wikipedia community considers this article well written. A lot of things go into this. The prose as well as the lack of POV and all facts have a reference.

Yes. I am the primary author. It has taken a huge amount of time and effort to get the article to where it is at now. If anybody has any questions or suggestions I would be happy to discuss.

Aaaaaah, so you're on there, I never made the connection. There was one person on there a few years ago, "interestingstuffadder" or something like that who was possessed to keep the "find another university" tidbit in the article. He fought for it for a while.
