    Competitive North Carolinians have a better chance of being accepted because of the small size of the North Carolina applicant pool. Residency requires living and working independently in the state for one year before matriculation, whether or not the candidate holds student status. Between 15-20 Wake Forest students are accepted into the class of 108 each year. Approximately 50-60% of the class is from North Carolina.

    From 2002-2003 MSAR

    2000-2001 First Year Class

    Applicants: in-state 644, out-of-state 4,800
    Interviewed: in-state 211, out-of-state 299
    New Entrants*: in-state 51, out-of-state 57

    *# offered acceptances would have been higher; see below.

    Characteristics of the 2000 entering class are: students from 21 states and 49 colleges/universities. Gender, 39% women.
    Acceptance rate: 8% of all applicants were interviewed and 48% of those interviewed were offered acceptance for 108 places.
