    Hello everyone!

    Admission rates are starting to trickle out for the UCs and they are pretty much confirming what we expected. It’s becoming increasingly difficult for California residents to gain admission to the UCs. Actual enrollment of California high school seniors now stands at 7.5% which is significantly below the 13% legislated. (The UCs are technically complying with the 13% admission standard by referring many admitted applicants to UC Merced where only a rather small portion actually choose to enroll.)

    Two particularly pertinent statistics we feel worthy of sharing here:

    1. Non-resident admission rates are higher than California resident admission rates at UCLA and many of the other UCs.

    2. Non-resident UC enrollment has grown by over 280% since 2007.

    As we see it, the UCs are essentially caught in a catch 22. They need the additional revenue generated by the non residents but this is making it more difficult to fulfill their mission to the state’s residents.

    Best of luck with your applications!

    Californians should be outraged. I hope they do something about this.

    If you look at what California has done budget wise, it’s hard to feel sorry for them. They created the best public schools but also a disastrous budget situation with equally disastrous policies.

    Hello everyone!

    The SM Daily Journal has a nice article with some updates on the rising admission standards for California residents to the UCs and CSUs. We’d just like to re-emphasize that it is still possible for CA residents to gain admission to Berkeley and the other top California public universities. It’s just going to require a bit more planning with regards to positioning and application strategies.

    Best of luck with your applications!
