Do UC Admissions Have Access to Previous Applications

 I occasionally answer questions on Quora. Below is one question and answer:

Do UC admissions have access to your previous applications including your old personal statement?

— For instance, if you had applied once, but had not been accepted the first time, and now want to register for the same(or different) universities, will this influence the admission officers? Also, will they be able to see what you have written to the other universities a few years ago if you transfer

A:  Yes, the UCs do have access to the entire previous application/s and they will definitely look, mainly to check for discrepancies (date changes, Extra-Curricular switches, etc). This also applies to transfer reapplications, although supposedly the admissions office does not look at any freshman application you might have submitted if you later apply as a transfer.
