How competitive is getting admitted to the BS in Chemistry in UC Davis? Is it easier to get in there than lets say, Biological Sciences?

    Since Chemistry is in the College of Letters and sciences, UCD admits by division and not by College as for Biological sciences.

    (Humanities, Arts and Cultural Studies; Mathematics and Physical Sciences; Social Sciences)
    Biological sciences is impacted so Chemistry might be a slightly easier admit but you still need to meet UCD standards and being at or above the averages will help your chances.
