    i'm waiting for them too and it's driving me nuts!

    i called and the woman just said that it takes time to review the applications and i said "two months? for a secondary?" and she said that it wasn't a long time. okay.

    i'm waiting for uc irvine also, but they werent' very nice on the phone. i hate that!

    Whoa! This is NOT a normal year! Expect long, long delays and those May/March admission deadlines to be extended by a lot. Patience...is a virtue. Of course, if you want to bother the schools into rejecting you, please go right ahead! :)

    hey, play nice!

    we all know this is a weird year but you also know we are under the pressure of rolling admissions.

    besides, isn't it a little too easy to preach patience when you have your secondaries in hand?

    I submitted my UC app to them 8/22 and was rejected last week, so you may hear from them soon.

    It takes a couple of months for a secondary (or review for a secondary) in a lot of cases because your application goes thru a couple of reviews before secondaries are sent. So, two months is very normal. Don't stress unless it's been more like 3.5-4 months. It took UCSF almost 3 months to get back to me after I interviewed! Take care and good luck,

    Hey BeckyG! In which month did you interview? I'm curious to know when you received your acceptance. Thanks.

    Hi triangulation,

    I am at UCSF now as an MS-1. I interviewed in October last year and heard from UCSF in January. The earliest anyone will hear from UCSF this year is Dec 15th - acceptances are sent out (in previous years, anyway) on the 15th of each month from Dec to April. Hope that helps. Feel free to email if you have any questions,

    Becky
