UC Admission Blood Bath

From what I heard this year was a blood bath for UC Admissions for California residents.

I spoke with a college councilor and he knew students accepted at UC Berkeley (#1 ranked), but turned down by UC Irvine and UC San Diego!

Or accepted by UCLA, but turned for UCI and UCSD.

My understanding is:

1. UC's have taken major budget cuts.
2. Out of State Tuition is higher than in-state.
3. Foreign student tuition is higher than in-state.

Therefore, more spots were made open for Out of State and Foreign Students, reducing the amount of in state students admitted.

And the admission process is subjective with Essays, Outside Activities, Leadership, etc. all being taken into account to see whom would be the best person to be admitted.
