    I thought they said they would start releasing December 15, which is odd because it’s a Saturday.

    Whoaaa congrats!!! Did you already attend an MD II here? I'd thought that they interview for MD first, then PRIME if accepted to MD

    They haven't released any acceptances yet, but will send the first wave within a couple of days

    Whoops, I didnt clarify. This will be my MD II but it is on a designated MD/PRIME interview day. I believe prime interviews are conducted over the phone after acceptance, yes.

    Someone at Albany said he has already been accepted with a scholarship (he's already holding 12 other acceptances lol)...maybe they've started accepting the people they're super passionate about? We regulars gotta wait :'(

    Doubt it. With due respect, why would they go to an Albany interview if accepted with scholarship?

    I thought that at first too! But then the admissions dean called him out by name and thanked him for coming while the rest of us just sat there observing that lil lovefest . . . it was deeply depressing

    That's what i thought too...
     
  19. Sounds like someone is lying. 12 acceptances (a UCSF scholarship which they are not known for) and still decides to go to an Albany interview (an unranked medical school that is notoriously bad for giving aid and extremely expensive). I would have asked the guy to pull out the acceptance email.

    There are no merit scholarships here. If you have extensive need, there's need-based $ that covers quite a bit, but this is rare and for the vast majority of applicants won't apply.

    Best of luck! Hoping for good news for many of you in the coming days.

    Y'all are making me feel better for doubting him ... but also kind of shocked that someone would tell an outright lie. Maybe it was his psyche out technique...

    Yeah, I can pretty much guarantee that he hasn’t received a magical early acceptance, much less a nonexistent scholarship. The admissions office is very good about sending the first wave out all together in December.

    There was a post last year under the X vs. Y School in which someone posted they received a full CoA scholarship for UCSF. Could it have been a mistake??

    (Granted he/she mustve been a crazy applicant to get all those scholarships)

    UCSF (Full+COA), UMich (Full), Columbia (Full+COA), HMS Pathways(~34kloans/yr)

    I’d assume it was aid-based if anything. UCSF does not have merit-based scholarships (nothing comparable to a Geffen) - this is something the admit office acknowledges and laments. That being said, this was the OP’s only post on SDN, so who knows whether it was true, a mix-up of schools, or something else is involved.

    Rejected post interview... kinda expected it because my interviewer was unable to believe that I'd be willing to move all the way out there and pay that much to live there/for the school. Was kinda true though since the only way I would've attended there was if I got generous aid. Sad that my Cali dreams are over though haha. Looks like I'm sticking to the midwest.

    Good luck to everyone else waitlisted or still waiting to hear back!

    Damn. Rejected with a nice letter. Interviewed on the week of October 10th. Had a tough interview with faculty which I wish I could revisit. Still hoping for my first acceptance! Good luck to everyone else in the running for this fine school.
