By the Numbers

CaptureEditors Note: The Miscellany News has decided to begin publishing “By the Numbers,” which occasionally features a chart without additional analysis or opinions, allowing students to make their own interpretations. The goal is to highlight information we think our readers will find interesting. We encourage you to share your thoughts on this chart either by writing a letter to us or posting your comments online. Readers may submit charts for consideration by contacting the Opinions Editor at


This chart features the number of applications received by Admissions between 1995 and 2013, sorted by year and gender. This chart assumes all students fall within the male-female gender binary. This information, along with specific amounts by year, was published in The Vassar College 13/14 Factbook on page 16 and is available online from The Office of Institutional Research.
