University of California San Diego

University of California San Diego was founded in 1959 and is a public university.

It’s huge campus is spread across 1976 acres and it is located in La Jolla which is 12 miles from San Francisco.


My student want to get an admit here, but his GPA is low.

Similarly, his SAT score is also not good.

On the contrary, he has a research paper.


Undergraduate Admissions

Entrance Difficulty                                      Very difficult
Overall Admission Rate                              34% of 88,428 applicants were admitted
Early Action Offered                                    Yes
Early Decision Offered                                No
Regular Admission Deadline                    November 30


The reason why acceptance rate is high, because it has more number of seats.

The possibility of getting admissions are very good because not many students apply here, as it is very expensive.

Indian student below 85 % should not apply, since the application pool is strong.
