UC: Record Number of Applications

Posted by:

The number of high school seniors applying for fall 2015 freshman admission to the University of California rose by 6.5 percent over last year, the eleventh consecutive year of record high number of applicants. The overall number of transfer applications to UC was up by 2.6 percent over the fall 2014 cycle. All in all, UC received a total of 193,873 applications for fall 2015.

California students are finding that, year after year, getting into their first choice UC is more challenging than ever.   Check these 2014 stats for UCLA, for example:

Applicants include only those students who fulfilled the requirements for consideration for admission (i.e., who completed actionable applications) and who have been notified of one of the following actions: admission, non-admission, placement on waiting list, or application withdrawn (by applicant or institution). Admitted applicants include wait-listed students who were subsequently offered admission.)

So whether it be UCLA, Cal, or any top college on your dream school list, it’s important to start planning and preparing early, ideally in your freshman year.  Working with a college planner can help you gain the edge you need to be one of the lucky 16,059 offered admission when you apply to UCLA or any other school.  With a helping hand and proper head-start, you too can attend your top choice university!
