UC San Diego admitted 22,947 freshmen for its fall semester, according to a release sent out from the school.
The school increased its admissions by 25 percent from last year, with an increase of 10 percent in California residents. Nearly 1,700 are from San Diego and Imperial Counties.
The university also increased the number of out of state students by 43 percent, according to a report from the Sacramento Bee. Students who attend a UC school pay a higher tuition rate.
UCSD representatives told the newspaper that out-of-state students typically decline admission offers more often than California residents -- so it often evens out the students in the end.
