Does anyone know which college at UCLA has the lowest admission standard? What are the most competitve and least competitive colleges to apply to at UCLA...which one do I have a, statistically speaking, a better chance of getting into?

Please list the following colleges in order of highest admission standard to lowest admission standard:

College of Letters and Sciences
School of the Arts and Architecture
Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science
School of Nursing
School of Theater, Film, and Television


Thank you!

    dude it doesn't work that way. do not apply for a major in a specific college just because you think it'll be easier to get in. you apply for the major that you're interested in, period. if you're not interested in a major, you apply undeclared into LS. it's not like you can easily jump from college to college after you get in. you have to re-apply every time.

    and anyway, none of the colleges are particularly easy to get into. LS is the broadest and thus has the most acceptances, but that doesn't mean that statistically you'd have a better chance. the other colleges are specific and generally require years of portfolio work or experience for admission. you can't just apply on a whim.

    While L&S may have the highest admission rate, you're going about it all the wrong way.

    If you want to major in engineering, you should apply to HSSEAS. If you want to major in an art, you should apply to arts and architecture.

    Otherwise, you're going to end up in a major you despise.

    you do have the biggest range of majors to choose from though, if you're in L&S :rolleyes:

    if u're planning to get into college with some easy entry major and then switching colleges, its not that easy lol...
  • ucapplicant05ucapplicant05 Registered User Posts: 1,415 Senior Member
    lol. the schemes people are wanting to try to compensate for good old hard work/merit...

    well i vote for L&S too :)

    -It's always easy to switch into L&S
    -harder to switch into engineering, but still possible w/o too much trouble (but you'll have to do it ASAP if you want to finish in 4 yrs without having to kill yourself every quarter)
    -hard to switch into school of arts and architecture, unless you have a talent in one of the specific majors (because you'll need to submit a portfolio/audition)
    -^above goes for school of school of theater film and television, if not harder.
    -relatively easy to switch majors in the school you're in

    that's his trademark.

    though it's fairly appropriate here.
