  1. *** p < 0.01; ** p < 0.05; * p < 0.1.
  2. Campus-specific intercepts are evaluated at mean academic index for pre-209 Minority students and are measured relative to UC Riverside.
  3. Campus-specific slope coefficients on standardized academic index variable, A Istd,r,t for r = Minority and t = Pre-209. Each coefficient measures the effect of a one S.D. increase in academic index on probability of graduation and these effects are measured relative of that for UC Riverside.
  4. All specifications include the following control variables: parents’ income and education and initial major.
  5. Specification 1 adds a full set of dummy variables indicating whether the student applied to and/or admitted to each of the eight UC campuses.
  6. Specification 2 adds to Specification 1 the number of campuses applied to and admitted to for each of three tiers of UC campuses, with Tier 1 which includes UC Berkeley, UCLA and UC San Diego, Tier 2 which includes UC Davis, UC Irvine and UC Santa Barbara, and Tier 3 which includes UC Santa Cruz and UC Riverside, and also dummy variables that indicate whether a student applied to campuses in the Tier above or in the Tier below the Tier to which they were admitted.
  7. Specification 3 includes the base specification plus a set of dummies for the highest ranked campus a student was admitted to.
  8. Specification 4 includes the controls in Specification 2, plus a student’s total number of applications and admissions, respectively, as well as an average of average academic index of the applicants/admits for campuses the student applied/was admitted.
