Profile of Admitted Freshmen

When we review our freshman applicants, we look at a wide variety of factors, some more easily quantifiable than others. Below are the primary academic factors we considered when we reviewed our freshman applicants for fall 2004. Beyond being UC-Eligible (which almost all of our applicants are anyway) there is no specific cutoff value assigned to any of the factors we consider.
