Post interview R from october. Used to be my top choice a few months ago but honestly I became more and more disillusioned by their lack of transparency in the admissions process.
Even though I got an A, I’d be lying if I said UCLA’s admissions process didn’t bring up red flags for me. Seems like there was just no basic plan/organization, which is the very least you should expect from a T10 schoolThank you guys for a great thread--this process SUCKED, but you guys made it much more bearable Best of luck to you all! You guys will make amazing physicians
hehe, no I didn't. I got my post-II R this morning. I also know someone who emailed and didn't get a reply. I thought it was a good sign for me lol, but it's okay! gotta keep making moves.Did you get accepted? I spent several dollars renting it and never got a reply.
*sigh* idk, I mean it was a very nice response, but when I got it, I had to remind myself that it's not like his reply guaranteed me an acceptance. sorry, just trying to keep my head up!This is really DISTURBING if you didn't get accepted. No dean would say they hope to entice someone and give false hope like that.
That's what I'm thinking :| I don't know what else I could have done to better my chances. IIRC people who reported poor interview performances still got in and were surprised earlier this cycle.If they liked ppl enough to interview them and the interviewers gave great scores, what did they base this last round of decisions on??
idk where you got the idea that your final decision is with just one person... It's actually illegal to have that practice. Why is it odd? People can even be twins and have different opinions.Thanks for your insights. Is the final decision with just one person? It does seem odd that those people would have such different perceptions than seasoned interviewers, travel award screeners etc..
Good for you I often get more stressed when I check SDN.100000% self-appointed. I'm the only one(i think?) in my class who enjoys the popcorn-grabbing chat with neurotic applicants on SDN as a nice destresser.
