UCSC sends out admissions letters to high school seniors
By Jennifer McNulty
The campus has planned a series of events to help prospective students learn more about UCSC, including the Banana Slug Spring Fair, the campus's annual open house, which will be held this year on Saturday, April 15.
While applications to UCSC were up 12 percent over last year to a total of 20,260, the campus will only be able to accommodate an entering class of 3,700, said Thompson.
The average grade-point average of students who have been admitted to UCSC for the fall quarter is 3.62, and the average SAT score is above 1100, he said. In addition, 135 students are being considered for Regents Scholarships, the most prestigious academic award offered by the UC system to incoming students.
