The key to UCLA and UCB

There has been some interest in my writing a bit about the two top University of California schools — UC Berkeley and UCLA. Some students have been wondering about the latest admission statistics (in other words, admission stats from 2006) regarding the two schools, so after having done the research, I am providing it below:

UC Berkeley…

In fall of 2005, 41,695 high school seniors applied for admission to UCB for the fall of 2006. Their mean high school GPA was 3.82, 24.5% were in the top 4% of their schools, and their mean SAT score was 1826. Of those applicants, 9,750 students were offered admission. Their mean high school GPA was 4.17, 59.7% were in the top 4% of their high schools, and their mean SAT score was 2007. Of the accepted students, 4,209 filled out a “statement of intent to register.”

UCLA…

In fall of 2005, 47,226 high school seniors applied for admission to UCLA for the fall of 2006. Their mean high school GPA was 3.77, 22.3% were in the top 4% of their schools, and their mean SAT score was 1790. Of those applicants, 12,019 students were offered admission. Their mean high school GPA was 4.12, 50.3% were in the top 4% of their high schools, and their mean SAT score was 2003. Of the accepted students, 4,852 filled out a “statement of intent to register.”

    My son was one of those lucky few who is going to UCLA. I had the opportunity to eat lunch with an admissions volunteer after his acceptance. Leadership, passion, consistency in interests (ECs), an essay that lets the readers know what makes the applicant tick, and a devotion to learning is what she is trained to look for. Oh yeah, and living in California is a huge plus.
