As of September 2018, UCLA, UCSD, and UCSB have either directly or inadvertently stated that they over-enrolled the freshman class for Fall 2018 (some by more than 25% of the enrollment target) and it’s likely that other UCs may have over-enrolled as well (even though they didn’t say anything). UCLA has stated that the campus will reduce freshman enrollment in the next few years and it’s safe to assume that other over-enrolled UCs will do the same. Given that freshman enrollment reduction for Fall 2019 is imminent, take some time to consider and evaluate your backup college options in preparation for this. For a complete update, you may purchase a back issue of my September 2018 newsletter at https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=FF4T45KA293ZQ ($25; click “Pay with Debit or Credit Card” if you don’t have a PayPal account). Need detailed information on how major choice affects your chance of admission?
