"We're still in the middle of the recruiting process, but it appears that this year's applicant group is at least equal to, and may be better than, last year's," said UPJ assistant vice president Gyure. In recent years, he said, the average SAT score among UPJ freshmen has been 1050, and 80 percent graduated in the top half of their high school classes.
Of Johnstown's 1,934 freshman applicants, only 140 (85 percent of them engineering students attracted to UPJ's engineering technology program) were referred through the Options program.
Until this year, Johnstown had asked the Pittsburgh campus Admissions office to refer only engineering students. This year, UPJ asked Oakland to also refer arts and sciences students from a five-county region surrounding Johnstown.
