ok, so lets say that a UC accepts 4000 applicants for fall, and only 3000 actually decided to go there, how would they fill up the other 1000? do they have a waiting list of "potentials" in case they arent filled up? or do they just accept the 3000 and no more, how does this work

They admit more than they know that they are going to enroll. It's all done by a statistical process.

you can look up the stats
UCLA probably accepted arond 10000 people
and about 3900 will accept.

they have statistical ways of figuring out how many people to accept so they're usually accuracte.

but what if they underestimated how many people would actually attend the school? like accepting 5000 when they could only have 4580? i guess their statistical process is pretty good cuz it would suck if u got addmitted and then they said "oh sorry theres no room"

If one is admitted, they have to make room for you as long as you keep up your grades senior year.

However, they can be more hard-nosed about withdrawing admittance to students that slack off senior year. Each college has their own criteria but they can, and do, balance their enrollments that way.
