I am curious how many applicants there were for the cycle.
A sizeable portion of applicants apply to more than 5 schools each year. If we were to assume that an applicant receives 1.5 offers on average (very conservative), the acceptance rate would fall to approximately 9%, which is in line with what most departments report; approximately 10% acceptance rate. Obviously the top schools will have markedly lower acceptance rates due to the sheer amount of applications they receive.
Universities generally report how many applications they receive and the size of their entering class. They rarely report how many offers they make.
But here is the info that UCLA provides:
Generally we receive almost 700 applications per application cycle. We typically admit 100 to 120 applicants, and enroll approximately 25 students.
