(BERKELEY, Calif.) -- For out-of-state students looking to go to the University of California system, getting in has gotten a bit easier and the reason is economics.
The acceptance rate for out-of-state students increased by 10 percent this year, while the UC system says it accepted just below 70 percent of California freshmen for the fall of 2011, down one percent from last fall and nearly two percent the year before.
UC Berkeley, for example, is accepting nice percent more out of state students than last fall, mainly because they pay more.
UC says nearly six percent of admissions are from out-of-state, but will not go beyond 10 percent as far as out-of-state enrollment.
