A San Francisco Chronicle story on admissions to University of California had me checking my math — and my understanding of biology:
The admitted class is 55.6 percent female and 43.4 percent male, in line with a long-term trend.
And one percent are . . . what?
The elite UCs admitted a lower percentage of applicants, but UCLA admitted a lot more black applicants under a new “holistic review” process that gives credit to students who excelled at low-performing high schools. I hope the university will follow these students’ academic progress to see if the review really is identifying students who can succeed at UCLA.
