David’s post below made me wonder if everyone in here had this statistic?

There are more men than women ages 18-24 in the USA — 15 million vs. 14.2 million, according to a Census Bureau estimate last year. But nationally, the male/female ratio on campus today is 43/57, a reversal from the late 1960s and well beyond the nearly even splits of the mid-1970s.

The student enrollment at Williams College was 2,073 in 2007 (2,053 full-time equivalent).

At Williams, about 47% of the freshmen class in 2007 was male and women were 53% of the class. Anyone have the stat on what it is for the entire school?
