These counts also include admissions by exception.In an effort to maintain the University's commitment to admit all eligible California high school graduates, Stage Two admission offers are given only to eligible California resident freshmen.
(2) Data for Fall 1997 are included for comparison. Counts, however, reflect final admission data, including all offers of admission for Fall 1997.
(3) An additional 3,157 alternate admission offers were made to Fall 1998 freshmen by Berkeley and Los Angeles for the winter and spring terms during Stage One Admissions. These offers contribute to the the overall effort to accommodate UC eligible freshmen.
