Are the majors for Letters & Science impacted as badly as the more science-math-computer based major

I'm currently a student at a community college in California, and I want to transfer to UC Davis with the TAG/TAP with International Relations as my transfer major. I'm just concerned despite the promise if I meet the criteria for the TAP/TAG, and do the normal application to the best of my abilities, somehow I won't get in.

Is anyone familiar if it's hard to get accepted for majors of Letters and Science, or even International Relations particularly?

And sorry if is this a silly question, but what does impacted mean per se? I think it means based off of context that it's hard to get accepted because everyone wants that major and there's more demand than supply and less chance of students getting accepted or into the classes they need as they may need to wait a year to get into a class if there's too few classes for the amount of students interested.

    Below are the selective majors (impacted= more qualified applicants than spots available) at UC Davis for the College of L&S:

    Applied Physics, Physics
    Computer Science
    Mathematics
    Pharmaceutical Chemistry
    Psychology
    Economics (effective fall 2021)

    As long as you meet the TAG requirements (GPA and courses) and maintain the GPA and complete the required courses by Spring 2020, you are guaranteed admission.
