    What we've learned in the 2017 cycle:

    Approximately 3,200 of the 22,000 applicants were admitted this year.

    Some students were accepted after their 2nd and 3rd tries.

    Several non-traditional students were accepted, as in prior years.

    TAP is highly recommended.

    Is transferring to UCLA from another UC a lot harder?
  • Happy2HelpHappy2Help Registered User Posts: 1,219 Senior Member
    @StevoMeepo check out the transfer profile data from past years https://www.admission.ucla.edu/prospect/adm_tr/Tr_Prof.htm

    Also this year there weren't as many students accepted so I'd say overall, transferring from another UC to UCLA is not easy but not impossible.

    **Useful tips for registration at Orientation**

    Before time to register for classes, create multiple options for class schedules. Often times your first or even 2nd choices are gone fast. There are hundreds of people registering at the exact moment that you are, so classes can go from open to closed in seconds.

    Some classes are held open for incoming transfers and an equal number are released for each orientation. But other classes are a free for all, so getting an earlier orientation date will be better for class selection.

    Many classes are crossed listed across 2 or 3 departments. The class may be closed for Sociology, but open for Communications. If a class has "M" before the number, that means its cross listed. So for example, Sociology M153 Chinese Immigration is in both Sociology and Asian studies. If it's full in Soc, there met be several spot in Asian Studies.

    Do not wait until the day of orientation to check out the schedule of classes!!!
