UCLA — which again received more applications than any other institution in the nation — has accepted 11,837 prospective freshmen out of 50,729 applicants for this fall.
African-American and other minority student admits increased. African Americans accounted for 3.4% (392) of those admitted, up from 2.1% (249) the year before. Underrepresented minority students made up 16.6% (1,906) of the admitted freshman class, up from 14.4% (1,703) previously. The fall 2007 freshman class was the first selected by UCLA using the holistic approach for reviewing applications.
