UCLA: a school that rejects the most qualified students, knowing that these students will hurt its yield rate. Oh, and before you UCLA students brag about your admissions policy, read this article: http://www.allanfavish.com/1_10_95.HTM
Last year, UCLA rejected a student from Torrey Pines High School in San Diego, CA, who had a 1510 SAT, scored 5's on numerous AP tests, was awarded a full ride to USC, and currently attends UC Berkeley as part of the Engineering program that is second only to MIT. How can anyone say that UCLA's admissions policy is legitimate and keep a straight face? I know another student that can't do this, as he was accepted to Harvard and Stanford, but not UCLA. UCLA: congratulations on your second-rate students!
