    does anybody know if ucsf is need-blind? I just got waitlisted but I have avoided filling out the financial aid because I was nervous it would be a factor.

    Hey all! I am having trouble finding information on UCSF's grading policies - does anyone know if it's P/F during pre-clinical?

    I’m an MS1 here at UCSF, Congrats to everyone who’s been accepted! And those waitlisted, sit tight, there’s decent WL movement at our school. Let me know if anyone has any questions regarding the curriculum or the school in general!

    Yeah I can echo this, there is a decent amount of waitlist movement here so keep your spirits up!

    Also, there is a class Facebook page for all accepted students that’ll eventually have some important resources. So check your portal where you can find a link to it

    Sorry to hear about the news :/
    How'd your other interview go? Do you think it was more of the interview that was the deciding factor in the decision?

    I felt like both my interviews had gone ok but not great. The faculty one felt like it went well besides the fact that he was being cautious about how likely it was id attend. Other than that though we had a great conversation and he seemed impressed with me and actually told me I seemed like a great applicant. The student one felt a little awkward to me because I was trying to carry the conversation and my student interviewer wasn't giving me much feedback to go on. I couldn't really tell if it was bad but it definitely felt awkward on my end so im guessing it wasn't good. They were very soft spoken and seemed almost shy and im the complete opposite haha so it probably didn't mesh well.

    So none of the schools you applied to got your letters? Or just this one? I'm sorry. That's one of the suckiest things I've heard all year.

    Hey y'all! I got an II to the JMP program a while back, but in the same email, was told I was not going to be offered an invite to interview at the UCSF general medical program. I can't really find anyone with comparable situations online. The JMP website seems to assume you would also interview for the UCSF general program. Is my experience normal? Or am I probably a long-shot for the JMP? Not sure what to think about it or how much to get my hopes up... Anybody with the same experience (particularly anyone who got admitted to the JMP with this same experience)?

    Was looking through old medapps.com profiles and think I saw this happen a couple times where either they were rejected to the regular MD and accepted to JMP or only interviewed for JMP. I think this is possible because you do your first two years at Berkeley so it almost an entirely different program? So maybe an analogy would be like the Charles Drew program at UCLA. Someone can correct me if I'm wrong
     
  31. Interview for UCSF-JMP program. Rejected for UCSF.

    That happened to me this cycle! I don't think it is out of the ordinary.

    I was put on the JMP alternate list today. Still hopeful, as this is my dream program! Does anyone know what the chances are of getting off the alternate list & when that might happen? Thank you!

    Also, has anyone been accepted?

    That's correct! JMP folks do their preclinical years at Berkeley, and usually their master's, then hop over to join us for clinicals. We're pretty different programs (JMP has small class sizes with a PBL-based curriculum) and sadly don't interact too much until third year.

    Do you have to apply for UCSF-JMP together with the secondary? Meaning if I've already submitted the secondary, is it too late to apply for that? Also are they done with interviews/interview invites?

    Thankfully it was only for UCSF and Icahn and a bunch of random safeties I applied to. Have no idea why it never went through, but oh well. Icahn immeadiately rejected me, but UCSF said they would still review my app.

    If we've already submitted financial aid information, does anyone know how long it takes the school to give us our package?
