Notes: Heteroskedasticity robust standard errors clustered by application score are in parentheses. Each coefficient is the reduced form estimate of the relationship between offer of admission and the listed covariate. The coefficients shown are generated by local linear regression using a triangular kernel and specified bandwidth, and include cohort and school fixed effects. Also listed is the mean of the covariate for students just below the threshold for receiving an offer of admission. The sample includes the 2007–09 cohorts for which graduation outcomes are available. ELL: English language learner; IK: Imbens and Kalyanaraman 2012.

**p < 0.05; ***p < 0.01.
