Screams, emoji and tears of joy echoed across the internet Friday, as thousands of high school seniors learned they were admitted to UCLA’s class of 2021 this fall.
The overabundance of ALLCAPS was understandable, given that they were among more than 102,000 high school seniors who applied for admission to UCLA for fall 2017 — the largest applicant pool in the nation.
Students took to social media to share their reactions, using the hashtag #UCLAbound. Here are some of the highlights:
