uabc logo At least 16 Tijuana universities advertise for students on day UABC announces who was admitted to its programs

The Autonomous University of Baja California on Sunday published who would be admitted to the university, who won certain scholarships and what other scholarships were available. Meanwhile, at least 15 other universities advertised in Tijuana newspapers for students who did not get in to UABC. There are around 30 institutions of higher learning in Tijuana, which experts say makes the city attractive for foreign investment. UABC Rector Felipe Cuamea said earlier this month that more than 29,000 applied to enter the university and that more than 18,000 were accepted.

On the same page as an El Mexicano story outlining the UABC selection process Sunday, the state government ran an ad seeking municipal police officer candidates; one requirement was that those seeking police training not have anti-social tattoos. Story, ad, El Mexicano (PDF).
