    I honestly think that UCSF doensn't look just at one thing but they look at the whole person. You might be weak in one area but strong in another. If I had to choose one thing to focus on, it would probably be extracurricular activities. They want people who are leaders, who show commitment, and who show care for the community. I think they look for more than just pharmacy experience and look at life experience. Good luck everyone.

    Hmm.. that has me worried because I sent my application out Oct 28th, and I know they received it in their office on the 31st. So far, no complete application email. Do you think I should call?

    Do you know if your PharmCAS was mailed out to them already? I submitted my PharmCAS in late July so it was practically sitting in their office this whole time.

    They specificaly stated that they DO NOT want people to contact them regarding the status of their application. As long as you submitted everything they asked for (two copies of Form A w/ check stapled to it, etc.) :rolleyes: and made personal photocopies of everything, you should be fine.

    Umm ... his post was from 2004? I don't think he's at UCSF anymore.

    This is the current UCSF thread for 2009-2010 (Applying for Fall 2010) http://forums.studentdoctor.net/showthread.php?t=657120

    Hi, I'm really confuse what to do right now. Should I get my bachelor first or go straight into a graduate school. I'm taking all the requirements to get into UCSF, but I'm not sure if it's good idea to go straight.

    please help!!! I desperately want to get into my first choice UCSF . I have avg. GPA but hear UCSF looks at entire app. Given my extracurriculars, is this enough for UCSF to overlook the avg. GPA and consider me a candidate? Should I apply under early decision? Please be real in your responses, I can handle it. (applying fall 2015)
