Forty One Percent of Incoming Freshmen are Female Students

Of the freshmen class of 2018, 41 percent are female students, marking the highest female to male student ratio in SNU history. Also, of the 658 regular admission students, only 305 are coming to SNU straight from high school, making it the first time students entering straight from high school constitute less than 50 percent of the total number of entrants. Regarding early admissions, 87 percent of students were straight out of high school. The number of high schools that sent one or more students to SNU is 831, a decrease from last year’s 912. This number has been steadily growing from 618 in the year 2002, to 1013 in the year 2010, but fell this year to the lowest number since 2006. Of all freshmen students, the number of students from regular high schools fell, from last year’s 53.4 percent to 47.2 percent, while students from science high schools and foreign language high schools rose, from last year’s 27.5 percent to 31.5 percent. The sole perfect scorer of this year’s science major scholastic aptitude test failed to enter SNU.
