According to our University Selection Comparison tool, when a student is admitted to both UC Berkeley and Cornell University, most students end up enrolling in Cornell over Berkeley.

For students admitted in Fall 2021 to both UC Berkeley and Cornell University:

  • 28.7% chose UC Berkeley
  • 71.3% chose Cornell University

It’s important to note, however, that these percentages even though are skewed towards Cornell, there is still a sizeable population, 28.7%, of students choosing Berkeley and they probably had very good reasons for why they made the choices they did. As you make your own decisions on which University Offer you want to accept, you should also consider the specific academic major, your fit with the academic and social culture at the campus, political and gender values, to name a few.
