Record number of students applied to UC Davis


College applications are in, and students are now anxiously waiting for the letter that will define their future.

When Yolanda Franklin got hers, it meant a new beginning.

"I wanted to move up in my career," said Franklin, a re-entry student at UC Davis. "And in order to move up, to become management, you had to have a bachelor's degree."

She said going back to school was the best decision she made, but for others it was a necessity.

"For me, it was my only choice," UC Davis graduate Suzan Azeredo said.

Azeredo got laid off in 2008 and getting a new job was almost impossible.

"I was competing with other people for jobs," Azeredo explained. "My experience was not enough because I didn't have any degrees."
