Mark G. Yudof, president of the University of California, said Wednesday that he would like to see all of the University of California campuses adopt "holistic" review of applicants, the Los Angeles Times reported. Under holistic review, personal characteristics -- such as overcoming poverty -- are considered, in addition to more traditional measures such as grades and test scores. Currently the broader review is used at the system's Berkeley and Los Angeles campuses, but Yudof said he hoped all of the campuses would adopt it. His comments came as system leaders apologized for a series of racial incidents at the San Diego and other campuses. At San Diego, only 1.6 percent of students are black.
