Many students are unsure about their college major when they apply, but fear that applying as an “undecided” major will have a negative effect on their chances of admission.
To get to the bottom of this, we asked current UCLA Undergraduate Admissions Director Susan Wilbur. Susan is also the former Director of Undergraduate Admissions for the entire UC System, so she is a great resource for admissions information.
“All students are assessed based on the merits of their application without consideration to a major…. If you are truly undecided, you should feel assured that your application will receive full attention and you will not be penalized in any way in the application process.”
