HEADS UP! UC Berkeley Admssions are going to drop below 10% next month.

Don't shoot the messenger.

I just read in the LA Times that UC Berkeley has been court ordered to hold enrollment at the '20-'21 level. They can't very well kick out anyone they already admitted so the only option is to slash admissions by a 1/3 or at least 5100 to get to an Freshman admit number of 11297 for the Class of '26 versus 16397 for the Class of '25. If the total number of applications remains constant from last year that's 10% admit rate. But I expect record numbers again in the 125,000-150,000 range up from 112,800 which will put admit rates in the 8-9% range similar to Cornell, Rice, CMC, Williams, Amherst.

I'm curious about what HS students think about State Schools curbing the expansion of seats like the Ivy League and Elite universities.

What should the UC system do if they can't expand?

 
UCs should give 1st priority of seats to CALI residents!
