UC San Diego announced Wednesday that it has offered admission to more than 30,000 freshmen for the fall semester, almost 3,800 more than last year, and around 9,800 transfer students, up by more than 1,650.
The students were selected from a record 84,209 freshman and 18,487 transfer applications. The admitted freshman class includes 58 percent more Mexican-Americans and 46 percent more African-Americans, according to the university.
