UCLA Prestige

<p>According to these statistics, Cal is not more desired than UCLA.</p>

<p>-This year more people applied to UCLA than any other university in the country.</p>

<p>-UC Berkeley (GPA: 4.17, SAT: 2007) student body is similar to UCLA's (GPA: 4.12, SAT: 2003)

<p>-Fall 2004 Yield Rates
UCLA 4257/9949 = 43%
UC Berkeley 3671/9024 = 41%

<p>UCSD's yield rate was 22% for the same year almost half of UCLA's or Cal's yield rate.

<p>more people apply to ucla than any university in the country every year :)</p>

<p>can you post 2005 yield rates too?</p>

<p>UCLA yield rate 39%</p>

<p>Strange, because the statistics in their news release (see below) don't match the statistics you quote (and that are on the attachment you provide):</p>

<p>The UCLA news release is at:
<a href="http://www.newsroom.ucla.edu/page.asp?RelNum=6980%5B/url%5D"&gt;http://www.newsroom.ucla.edu/page.asp?RelNum=6980&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p>This release says their incoming freshman GPA is 4.27, not 4.12; and that the average SAT of incoming freshmen is 2009, not 2003</p>

<p>I guess I'll use the UC Office of the President data since it compares school to school--but it seems odd that the statistics quoted would be different.</p>

<p><a href="http://students.berkeley.edu/admissions/freshmen.asp%5B/url%5D"&gt;http://students.berkeley.edu/admissions/freshmen.asp&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p>Yeah I saw that, I'm just using the UC data to compare both schools so people won't call me bias. Although the 4.12 I believe is the UC GPA (capped at maximum 8 honors points). 4.27 is fully weighted GPA.</p>

4.27 GPA, 2010 SAT</p>

<p>Wait, I showed to 05 data, you're using the prospective (read- admitted but not necessarily enrolling) 06 data.</p>

<p>It's also interesting to note the higher percentage of international and out of state admits- do you have any stats about those that actually enroll? I personally think that Berkeley should have more international and out of state students admitted, although many disagree.</p>

<p>In 2005</p>

<p>UCLA GPA:


4.25



Berkeley GPA:


4.25

UCLA SAT: ``` 1346 ``` Berkeley SAT: 1335

UCLA SAT II Writing: ``` 674 ``` Berkeley SAT II Writing: 670

UCLA SAT II Math:


715

Berkeley SAT II Math: 690</p>

<p>According to this data, UCLA is more difficult to get in.</p>

<p>I'm sorry, this data only indicates that those were admitted had higher stats. This subject is boring me though. Must we continue?</p>

<p>Your data is based on prospective as well. I'm using prospective vs prospective</p>

<p>i love the whole "because UCLA has higher admit stats, ucla is more difficult to get in / ucla is more prestigious" bullsh.i.t.</p>

<p>please stop, you're not this stupid i hope</p>

<p>id say ucla and cal are equally prestigious except in engineering and business. admit stats dont mean anything, apparently only usnews rankings do. >.></p>

<p>^ on this board, yep pretty much</p>

<p>btw, stop feeding the troll</p>

<p>I'm not trying to prove that UCLA is "more prestigious" there's just been too many Cal people thinking they're all that lately on the boards.</p>

<p>Hasn't UCLA maintained a higher yield rate than UCB for the past few years now? :rolleyes:</p>
