  The Scientist : University of California System Warily Eyes GOP Budget Cutting
The academic institution with arguably the greatest stake in the outcome is the University of California (UC) system, which is widely regarded as the flagship of public education in the United States.
How the University of California adjusts to the new reality in federal research funding is also likely to serve as a bellwether for other universities across the country, as the nine-campus system includes some of the nation's premier research universities.
That means the UC system has a lot at risk in the calculus of federal cutbacks, but administrators point out that over the past few decades they have been able to parlay the government's largess into a number of impressive doctoral programs.

However, ports of the system to machines with long names were not successful and the enduring port was to the VAX architecture, because VAX is short enough for everyone to type.

 University of California System Raising Admission Standards
Prompted by a report that found 14.4% of California high school students were meeting University of California system (UC) admission standards, the UC system is now actively examining recommendations to raise its standards to decrease the percent of qualifying students to the target 12.5%.
California is holding the percent constant so at least the argument that the overall nation's population is growing and the Ivy League enrollments are not keeping pace is not applicable to this situation.
Nonetheless, we can still empathize with the California parents who have been paying high taxes in hopes that their children will be able to gain admission to the prestigious UC system at in-state rates.
