The University of Virginia released numbers for early admission, and more than 3,500 students received offers, from more than 13,500 applications.

Of those students offered admission, more than half - just over 2,000 of them - were from Virginia

According to a university press release, the numbers of early applications are up 17 percent from last year. Around 3,500 applicants were deferred to regular admission, which means they'll learn if they're in come March.

The university also seems to be getting even more competitive. This year saw an increase in both the average SAT scores and the amount of students who were in the top 10 percent of their high schools.

As of Wednesday, the university reports that more than 150 accepted applicants have already placed tuition deposits. They say their target total number of freshman students this year is right around 3,500.
