Class of 2018 members complete college decisions

As of May 1, the Class of 2018 has made official college decisions. The Office of College Counseling has released the following impressive statistics on the class's application, acceptance, and decision process.
This year, the Class of 2018 (103 students), submitted 475 applications (4.6 per student) to 128 unique institutions. Offers of admission were extended from 95 of those institutions, and the overall admission rate for the class was 81%. 

Students received offers of admission from seven institutions ranked in the top 30 national universities by U.S. News and World Report. They are (in order of ranking):

Vanderbilt University (2 admits)
University of Notre Dame (1 admit)
Washington University in St. Louis (2 admits)
University of Virginia (2 admits)
Wake Forest University (3 admits)
New York University (1 admit)
University of North Carolina (4 admits)
 
Students received offers of admission from three institutions ranked in the top 30 liberal arts colleges by U.S. News and World Report. They are (in order of ranking):
 
Davidson College (2 admits)
Bates College (1 admit)
University of Richmond (2 admits)
 
Students received offers of admission from 11 institutions ranked in the top 30 public universities by U.S. News and World Report. They are (in order of ranking):
 
University of Virginia (2 admits)
University of North Carolina (4 admits)
Georgia Institute of Technology (1 admit)
University of California – San Diego (1 admit)
University of Florida (1 admit)
The Ohio State University (1 admit)
University of Georgia (4 admits)

Clemson University (10 admits)
Texas A&M University (1 admit)
 
Overall, students will go in 43 directions next year. Students will attend 41 different 4-year colleges and universities in 17 states. 
 
This year we have a record number (30) venturing to Knoxville next year to attend UTK. The remaining 73 students will be at 40 different schools, meaning that most of them will not go to college with many (if any) classmates. In fact, after UTK, the school with the most seniors attending will be Belmont University and the University of Mississippi with 5, and the University of Tennessee – Chattanooga, Auburn University, and Samford University with 4 each. Twenty-three students will be “lone-rangers” at their institution. Of those 23, 5 will be "trailblazers" meaning that they represent the first CPA student to attend since the Class of 2018 was in Kindergarten. The new-to-CPA schools are: 
 
Delta State University
The University of Arizona
University of North Georgia
University of Richmond
University of Northern Colorado
 
The Office of College Counseling releases the following statement on these statistics: 

"These notes are a testament to the great work being done in the CPA classrooms (K-12) and the careful discernment being exercised by our seniors. That is the testimony in these statistics. We have seen the spirit at work through these young men and women, through the many tears and stumbling points, moments of vulnerability, and moments of celebration and relief. As we close the book on this class’s college application process, we look forward with joy to watching their stories continue to unfold."
