I'm from NC but considering applying to some California schools. Does anybody know if California schools (UCLA and UCSD) give preference to in state students?

I would imagine any state school would give a slight preference to in state applicants.

UCLA has 86% instate matriculants
UCSD has 92% instate matriculants

Although this doesn't say exactly the breakdown of acceptances, you can get a decent idea about the prefs.

also, seeing as how those two are top-25 schools, im guessing you must be a very competetive oos from a "good" university.

Yes, they do.

Now go away, we have too many applicants as it is. You're allowed to apply to Stanford though. :smuggrin:

Sorry to replay the broken record here, but the important peice of advice that you are missing here - GET AN MSAR AND READ IT. Instead of asking total strangers for questionably accurate advice about something this important - do your homework.

Oh - and to answer your original question, CA schools don't even take Californians, they only take a specially bred group of mutants raised on Mars. I am hoping this googly-antenna headband I am wearing will give me a shot.

So, I guess I found the answer myself... although I'm not sure I believe it due to the in state % of matriculants. UCLA does not give preference to in state applicants (quoted from their site) and UCSD does.
