US Schools Reduce Enrollment For 2009-10

Despite record-level applicants to UC schools this year, the University of California will stick to reducing its admission by 2,300 students. "This was an exceptionally competitive year," said Susan Wilbur, director of the university system's undergraduate admissions. Budget uncertainties and an expected tuition hike of nearly 10 percent in the fall clouded this year's admissions decisions. Davis, Irvine, Los Angeles, Santa Barbara, and Santa Cruz have all reduced their number of freshman admissions offers, while Berkeley and San Diego wait-listed more than 3,000 students for the spring term of 2010 instead of fall 2009. The good news is that all UC-eligible students - and about 72% of all applicants - were offered admission somewhere in the UC system.
