Last application cycle, UCLA received 140,000+ applicants—more than any other school in the US.
Similarly, Stanford had to delay announcing its admissions offers because of how many applications it received.
Getting into one of these top-ranked colleges in California is not an easy feat, that is why we have invited former UC admissions officer Mason Hill and recent Berkeley and UCLA admits Francessco and Mithcell to take us through the admissions process and share what you can do now to stand out.
Before joining Crimson, Mason Hill worked as a senior admissions officer at UCSB’s undergraduate admissions office.
At Crimson, Mason has supported numerous students to top-tier colleges including Yale, Stanford, UC Berkeley, UCLA, and more.
Currently, Mason is pursuing his M.Ed. at Harvard’s Graduate School of Education.
