Getting into a coveted spot at the University of California got a little easier this year, as UC announced Monday it has accepted 62% of freshman applicants for its nine undergraduate campuses this fall, compared to 59% last year.

The university’s admissions report for fall 2019 UC contains an array of details to satisfy any UC junkie, including summaries of residence and ethnicity for those admitted, and the number who would become the first in their family to attend college.

While not everyone admitted will choose to enroll, UC has extended the invitation to 108,178 freshmen, leaving more than 68,000 disappointed applicants this year.

The university will also open its doors to 28,752 transfer students, or 76% of the 41,282 who applied.

But getting into UC doesn’t always mean that hopefuls will be admitted to the campus of their choice. All UC-qualified students have the option to enroll in the newest campus, UC Merced, where freshman admissions are up 10% over last year, to 18,456. But seats offered at selective UCLA, for example, plunged 14%, to 13,747.

Flagship campus UC Berkeley is also highly selective. And although acceptances rose 8% since last year, they are actually down over two years by more than 900 offers, a 6% drop to 14,657.

Overall, the university has offered admission to 136,930 incoming freshmen and transfer students this year, slightly higher than last year’s offers to 136,772 students...

Although the offer numbers top last year’s by only 158, UC officials expect about 2,500 more students than last year to accept. The university will report those numbers this fall...
