From Dreaming to Being: Your Guide to UCLA Admissions

Located in sunny Los Angeles, UCLA enjoys a reputation that’s as bright and cheerful as the city it resides in. If the name UCLA conjures a picture of surf lessons between classes and rubbing elbows with Hollywood elites at the coffee shop in your head, well, you’re not entirely wrong. 

This is a place where the brain power can outshine even the California sun, where future Nobel laureates are potentially your study buddies. UCLA is not just located in the city of dreams, it’s here where you begin to architect your own.


Student Population and Top majors

At UCLA, the brilliance isn’t just found in the California sun, but in the diverse population of over 30,000 undergrads who hail from all corners of the globe. This high-energy student body is known for its passion, innovation, and intellectual curiosity that lights up lecture halls just as much as any Hollywood studio.

UCLA offers more than 125 undergraduate majors, but a few of them shine particularly brightly among the rest. Business Economics, Political Science, and Psychology typically top the list as the most popular majors. On the other hand, Biology and other STEM fields are also buzzing with activity, which shouldn’t come as a surprise given UCLA’s prominence in research and its proximity to the tech-savvy Silicon Beach.

For those with a flair for the creative, the School of the Arts and Architecture, the School of Theater, Film and Television and the Herb Alpert School of Music offer highly esteemed programs that beautifully blend intellectual rigor with creative expression. 

Applications and Acceptances

Getting into UCLA is no small feat. With over 150,000 applicants eyeing that coveted acceptance letter each year, UCLA’s admissions office has its work cut out. They’re one of the most selective public universities in the US.

Now, before you start panicking and start considering a career in llama herding instead (which, by the way, is a perfectly respectable career), let us put things in perspective. Yes, the numbers can seem intimidating, but remember that UCLA, like most selective universities, looks at more than just your grades and test scores. They are interested in who you are as a person and what unique qualities you can bring to their vibrant Bruin community.

For international students, the acceptance rate can be even more competitive, but hey, someone’s got to be among that lucky percentage, right? Why not you? With the right preparation, a compelling application, and a little sprinkle of luck, you too could find yourself enjoying the California sun on UCLA’s iconic campus. So, don’t count yourself out too soon. Roll up your sleeves, put your best foot forward, and get ready to show UCLA what you’ve got. And hey, if all else fails, there’s always the llama option!

Getting into UCLA may seem akin to pulling a rabbit out of a hat. And while we at IvySummit can’t perform magic tricks, we sure can help demystify the application process for you.
