Too many of­fers, not enough spots

Los Angeles Times - - OPINION -

Re “UCI un­der fire for re­scinded ad­mis­sion of­fers,” July 28

The ad­mis­sions process at UC Irvine is sim­i­lar to book­ing a seat on an air­line. Air­lines over­book flights to achieve max­i­mum oc­cu­pancy.

At UC Irvine, a greater num­ber of ap­pli­cants are granted ini­tial ad­mis­sion than the size of the fresh­man class. Now, ad­mis­sion of­fi­cials are go­ing through a strin­gent process check­ing re­quire­ments for any pos­si­ble er­rors to re­scind stu­dents.

The Times has be­come a cry­ing rag for un­for­tu­nate peo­ple not get­ting their way. This is an ar­ti­cle based on some­one’s un­for­tu­nate sit­u­a­tion.

Many of those re­scinded ad­mis­sions of­fers were for poor grades in se­nior year, oth­ers for tran­script is­sues. If the univer­sity rules are not fol­lowed, the ap­pli­ca­tion is re­jected. If the ap­pli­ca­tion is re­jected un­fairly, there is an ap­pel­late process. Is this rocket sci­ence? John Lund­berg Pa­los Verdes Es­tates
