2013 CIRP Freshman Survey: Demographic and Academic Profile

The CIRP Freshman Survey asks a number of questions related to students' academic activities during high school and their plans for college and beyond. The information below is based on the responses of fall 2013 incoming first-year students on the Oxford campus of Miami University. Also included are trend data for Miami first-year students for the past 5-30 years and comparison results for students at other highly selective public institutions.

Academic Background
Compared with students at other highly selective public universities, incoming Miami students are less likely to be first-generation college students and are more likely to have graduated from a private high school. Miami students are less likely to have taken AP courses during high school. Miami students report spending less time studying during their last year of high school than do students at other highly selective public universities.

Degree and Career Aspirations

Incoming Miami students are more likely than students at other highly selective public universities to report a bachelor's or master's degree as the highest degree planned; students at other highly selective public institutions are more likely than Miami students to plan to obtain a Ph.D., Ed.D, or professional medical degree (e.g., M.D., D.O.). Incoming Miami students are more likely to plan for a career in business and are less likely to plan for a career in engineering. Similarly, incoming students at Miami are more likely to plan to major in business and are less likely to major in engineering than are students at other highly selective public universities.
