African Americans made up 5.9% of the California’s high school graduates in 2014, but only 4.3% of those admitted to University of California’s freshman class that fall; Latinos were 47% of high school graduates but only 28.9% of those admitted.

If you’re a high school student or recent graduate, we’d like to hear your ideas about how UC’s could do a better job recruiting minority students. What were your experiences? What do you think would make a difference?
