Northern California vs Southern California Residents

jellybungstersjellybungsters Posts: 3Registered User New Member
Does anyone know of any published statistics regarding the percentage of Northern California Residents vs Southern California residents that were admitted to Berkeley and the same statistics for UCLA?

I'm wondering if Berkeley admits more students from Northern California vs Southern California and whether UCLA is the opposite.

    im a socal resident who got into cal but not ucla. but i think in general my school had more ucla admits than cal. i doubt there would be statistics on that though because they tend to separate by state, not area within the state.

    I'm from SoCal and it seems like in recent years Berkeley has admitted more from my school than UCLA. A friend of mine theorized that Cal wants more SoCal residents and UCLA wants more NorCal residents to have a more "diverse" class. I'm not sure how if this is true but it seems somewhat logical. Last year my school had 20+ Berkeley admits, and a mere 4 or 5 UCLA admits.

    My graduating socal high school class was the opposite last year. Berkeley admitted 18 while UCLA admitted 24. The accepted UCLA kids had an average GPA of 4.2039 while those who were accepted by Berkeley had an average GPA of 4.1493. It seems like UCLA is more GPA oriented at least in this case.

    I really don't think there's a correlation. :/

    If it helps at all, in Chem 1A last semester, we took a poll, and it basically came out to like 47% from the Bay Area, 45% from Socal, and the rest from Norcal.

    47% bay area.. 45 % socal.. and do you mean rest are from oos or international?
    That is not a very good sample. It only limits to chemistry students.
