The UCLA admissions website hasn’t initiated 2021 numbers, so here’s the a link to University of California system UCOP Data
|Applications||Accepted||Acc. Rate||Est. Enroll||Approx Yield||% by Res.|
|Out of State||33,383||4,636||13.9%||1,159||25.0%||18.8%|
I estimated yield for each resident cohort based on recent history. This resulted in my guessimating that residents of CA would ~ 72% of the freshman class, which may be a bit low. My estimate that 53% yield for CA residents though seemingly high based on recent past, might in fact be low for them based on university estimates for this year. The 25% yield of OOS students might also be a bit high – it may end up being 23-24%. The internationals are a hard read because their yields have been all over the map.
But the point is that the acceptance rate based on the link shows at 10.8%, and these were given by the UCOP website. In admissions decisions it read approximately that “less than 1 in 9 were accepted for the class entering 2021.” 1/9 of course is = 11.1%, so the 10.8% A/R is on point.
The past two years of acceptance rate were 12.4% and 14.4% for the respective years of 2019 and 2020. The 14.4% for last year’s class was elevated, of course, because of the virus. Edit: and of course, the A/R dropped quite a bit this year because of the massive increase in applications.
