Black Issues in Higher Education, v22 n2 p15 Mar 2005
The number of students who want to get into the University of California topped 100,000 for the first time this year, including nearly 9,000 students seeking one of the 1,000 spots at the new campus of Merced. Two-thirds of the applications, or about 76,000, were from freshmen looking to attend UC's nine undergraduate campuses this fall, a nearly 3 percent increase over last year. Despite recent funding cuts, UC officials anticipate they will be able to find a place somewhere in the system for all qualified California high-school graduates, as set out in the state's guiding Master Plan for Higher Education, says UC spokeswoman Ravi Poorsina.
