Since UCLA is a state sponsered public school, I would guess that Californians make up the majority of students.  Politically, it would be hard for them to justify to the UC Regents as to why CA resources are being spent on out-of-state residents.  (The UC Regents are mainly political apointees and Govenator Arnie.)  How many are Californians?  75%? 80%?

On UCLA's web site they state that they are about 71% in-state admits.  Most of the CA schools (Hastings excepted) are the same.

The main preferential treatment that Calif residents receive is the price break. For this reason the applicant pool is heavily weighted towards in-state, thus the admit pool is also.

Calif loves out-of-state students. Aside from paying full fare, they also are likely to stay & work & spend money in California after graduating. The whole rationale behind any state-sponsored education is economic.

No word from either USC or UCLA.

As stated before the UC's do not give preference to CA residents. Just every CA resident applies to UC's b/c of the tuition. Also a higher percentage of CA residents that are admitted to a UC end upp attending one.
