UC freshman applications grow, but state funding standoff could stall expansion plans - Katy Murphy, Mercury News

Every one of UC's nine undergraduate campuses had more freshman applications this year, making them harder to get into than ever, new data released Monday show. And a state budget standoff could stall UC's plan to open the door to more Californians amid widespread frustration over soaring demand and plummeting admissions rates. UC leaders say they want to add 5,000 California students over the next five years. "I'd like to be optimistic that the UC will expand," said Jefferson Kuoch-Seng, president of the UC Student Association. But, he said, "I don't really see it as feasible if they're not getting more money."
