    The 86,000 figure is WAAAAY off. This year's undergrad application counts are not radically different from the last few years. I'm not authorized to release any statistics, but you can check this one off your worry list!

    Lawl.
    People, did you really think that the total number of applications received would go from 48,400 to 86,000+ in ONE year? Come on.

    Then people wonder when I get annoyed with them thinking that all Berkeley students are smart. Uh, clearly, no, many are not.

    bartleby get over yourself although I would have had to read the official release to believe it 86,000 applications isn't completely impossible given CA has over 38 million ppl and the way the economy is right now. 86,000 apps if you would look at CA is only probably around 23% or less of the total graduating class this year and thats saying every app is an instate student, not including OOS. I thought it was very unlikely, but still possible.

    It's likely way off. UC freshman applications are running about 3% higher than last year according to UC officials (I think the number is based on unique applicants). While mathematically it's possible for Cal applications to go up by 60%, it's highly improbable without a similar increase in the total UC applications.

    Maybe the number is more like 56,000 freshman apps, that would be a little more reasonable-still an incredeible number!

    Another thread claims a much more reasonable ~49,000 apps... does anyone know when the Regents are meeting to discuss (among other things) whether to cap admissions? I know its sometime within the next 2 weeks...

    4225 freshman, 48418 applicants. 21% admit rate.
    almost 6000 students had the opportunity to go to cal and didn't!
    this is madness!!! =]

    "Madness..." THIS IS SPARTA!

    Sorry, I couldn't resist.

    Ya, record number of applicants + lack of budget from Sac = low admit percentage

    Class o' 2013 should be kick ass though, since those that are admitted had to go through one hell of an admissions process.
