The number of African-American students intending to enroll in UCLA's fall freshman 2007 class has nearly doubled compared to last year: 203 compared to 103 in 2006. Overall, 4,636 admitted students say they plan to enroll.
From a record 50,744 applications, UCLA admitted 11,924 students to the new freshman class. Underrepresented students — African Americans, Chicanos/Latinos and Native Americans — increased nearly 3% to 19.4% (873), up from 16.5% (773) last year.
The number of African-American students enrolling as freshmen reached a crisis point last year. Subsequently, UCLA students, alumni and many individuals in the Los Angeles community volunteered to help reverse the trend.
