    Wow - OOS for UCB is 17.1% only this year? I remember on average OOS was around 50%.

    > 50% must have been 30+ years ago.

    From total applications UCLA admitted only 15% in state, 23% OOS and 13% intl.
    Incoming class looks like this: 56% in state, 30% OOS and 14% intl.
    From total applications Berkeley admitted 20% in state, 22% OOS and 8% intl.
    Incoming class looks like this: 62% in state, 29% OOS and 9% intl.

    @califmom23 Where did you figure out those numbers for the incoming class? You can't just use the admitted numbers because the yield is very different for in state and out of state. I think the last time I looked, the OOS yield for UCLA was around 20%, hence why they seem to accept more OOS students. UCLA's instate yield was at least double, maybe even 50%. I think Berkeley has a slightly higher yield for OOS. The OOS yield probably has gone down since the State legislature disallowed financial aid to OOS students.

    @TreeAlum you’re absolutely correct! It is the admitted numbers and not the students attending. Thank you for the correction. My apologies everyone. :neutral:

    One thing is for sure UCLA has firmly moved into that number 1 slot in the state of California.

    I believe the next ranking list for USNWR will be released in September. It will be interesting to see how the adjusted alumni donor numbers affect UCB's spot. I hope it can at least retain the #2 public university slot.
