UCSD is ranked 7th in the nation. I know it is very selective and competitive university. What do the admissions mostly look in a freshman applicant? Is the UC personal statement a major part of admittance or is it more of the Academic such as the GPA, extracurricular activities, community service hours, SAT/ACT scores, etc? How hard would you say it is to get in UCSD?! Will being involved in the UCSD Hughes Scholars Program help me get a better chance of getting accepted?
