Some notes:

-- A 3.92 uwgpa descended to the 38th percentile in 2018. In 2019, a 3.94 descended to the 39th percentile.

-- The gpa numbers, both uw and w, have increased across the board when they haven't run against a cap.

-- The native CA students increased their SAT points by an admirable 20 points at the 25th percentile.

-- However, the board scores for the student body entering as a whole remained exactly the same because the University reduced the freshman class from 6,240 to 5,920, and at the same time increased CA-resident students from 4,365 to 4,433. This reduced non-resident presence negated the increases in SAT points by CA students because they have lower scores.

I'll be adding to this thread when I get a chance. One metric to note for SAT will be the number of students who score 700 or > on their Math and EBRW on UCLA's published CDS. For 2018 these were 58% and 51%, respectively. Though the SAT numbers have remained virtually the same per this mapping, these two measures will show if the median has actually increased or decreased.
