Even with the UC system facing budget cuts left and right, UC Berkeley saw a record number of applicants this year, the Daily Cal reported today, citing a report released by the Office of the President earlier this month.

According to the Daily Cal, the University received a total of 142,235 freshman and transfer applications for this fall, which is a a 6.1 percent increase from last year.
