I work with a lot of California high school students applying to the UC system. Seems like there's a much higher number of applicants getting put on waiting lists rather than straight admits.
UC Berkeley waitlist statistics for first-time, degree-seeking freshpeople from the Fall of 2015 (source):
- Number of applications offered a place on waitlist: 3,760
- Number of applicants accepting place on waitlist: 2,445
- Number accepted from waitlist: 1,340
In a previous year (unspecified): 2143 waitlisted; 437 offered admission from waitlist.
It also appears that in 2013, UC Berkeley offered only 200 waitlist spots to applicants. (source)
