AbstractAn early admission call-up was used to attract high-achieving students to a private university in Lebanon. The callup, which is essentially an offer of admission before the student takes any formal steps, was administered to the top 25th percentile ranked students of main feeder schools at a private university in Lebanon. Data were accrued for students who applied for admission from 2000 to 2006. The early admission call-up was made in spring of 2006, the analysis compared the top 25th percentiles academically ranked students of previous years not given the early admission call-up. In addition, the analysis compared those below the 25th percentile score subgroup. Results showed that students who were given an early admission call-up enrolled at higher rates than those at the top 25th percentile rank in previous years. It was shown that those at the top 25th percentile score had higher high school averages as compared to candidates from previous academic years.
