Some 3,000 prospective students and their parents attended a recruitment session Saturday for New York University Shanghai's inaugural class.

The university will employ some American admission procedures to supplement the Chinese applicants' scores on the gaokao, or national college entrance examinations, said Yu Lizhong, president of NYU Shanghai.

"The university wants to evaluate each student's overall ability," Yu said at the session, which was held at East China Normal University. "The gaokao score used by most universities in China is a quantitative measure that shows one part of a student's ability. NYU Shanghai is looking for young talent with both ability and the desire to acquire knowledge."

NYU Shanghai will accept 300 undergraduates for its first class, which will start in the fall of 2013.

The inaugural class will comprise 151 students from Beijing, Shanghai and eight other regions on the Chinese mainland. Tuition for Chinese students will be 100,000 yuan ($16,060) a year.
