UCLA has 11 highly regarded professional schools, many of them ranked among the best in the nation by U.S. News & World Report, including the School of the Arts and Architecture; the Graduate School of Education and Information Studies; the David Geffen School of Medicine; the Anderson School of Management; the School of Law; the Henry Samuel School of Engineering and Applied Science; the Fielding School of Public Health; the School of Nursing; and the Luskin School of Public Affairs. Dentistry programs are not ranked in the report, but UCLA's School of Dentistry is widely considered among the nation's best by several measures. While U.S. News & World Report also does not include film schools, the Hollywood Reporter has ranked the School of Theater, Film and Television fourth among the world's film schools.
Each year UCLA's freshman enrollment has risen in the 100,000.
More than 105,800 people applied for UCLA’s fall 2014 entering class, about a 6 percent rise from 2013. Most of the increase in applications came from a more than 7 percent growth in freshman applicants.
More than 112,000 students — with more diverse geographic, ethnic and racial backgrounds than last year’s applicants — have applied for admission to UCLA for fall 2015. That number, which again makes UCLA the nation’s most applied-to four-year university, comprises 92,681 freshman applicants and 20,063 transfer applicants
UCLA continued to attract large numbers of California students who would be the first in their family to graduate from a four-year college (41.2 percent of all applicants) and students from low-income families (38.1 percent).
To evaluate applicants, UCLA uses a comprehensive,
review process that ensures a thorough review of each application and takes into account the context of each applicant’s educational and personal experiences.
Freshman applicants will be notified of UCLA’s admission decisions by April 1, and admitted students will have until May 1 to notify the campus of their intention to register. Transfer students will be notified of admission decisions by April 30 and will have until June 1 to commit.
"This data shows that students and families highly value the outstanding education UCLA offers," Montero said. "We also are pleased that despite severe state funding cuts and higher tuition, this is our most diverse applicant pool to date."
Among all racial and ethnic groups, those groups traditionally underrepresented at UCLA experienced the largest percentage increase in applications.
Latino applicants grew by 15.6 percent over last year, while African American increased by 13.7 percent and American Indian applications 12.9 percent, respectively. Asian American applicants increased by 6.8 percent, while applications from white students decreased by 2.3 percent, reflecting ongoing changes in the demographics of California's high schools.
UCLA also continued to experience gains among students who will be the first in their family to graduate from college (41.7 percent of total applicants) and those who come from low-income families (39.4 percent).
Freshman applications from out-of-state and international students rose by 57.8 percent, from 12,920 in 2011 to 20,395 this year.
