    FYI if you email the deans directly they may not like it very much. Also, if you call them, chances are that their secretaries WILL NOT put you through to them.

    Thank you guys for your response!

    UCLA2000 Lets say I have specific concerns that only the dean of admissions could answer? How will i get in contact with him? I mean, this are some questions in particular I have. I post them here already and they were very mixed responses, so I decided to just go ahead and ask the specific schools I was interested in. Any advice from anyone else?

    UCLA 2K is right. Your not special enough for the directors of admissions to give time to, so all you would do is clutter up their mailbox. Not sure it would hurt you, prolly because they would never read it.

    Ha! Sounds like a bunch of nervous, competitive pre-meds here scared of someone else getting in with the deans. There goes the SDN "supportive" atmosphere. :laugh:

    Eduardo,

    The longer you're on sdn, you'll find that they are plenty of helpful folks. However, I wanted to point out to ya that that's quite a list of schools you've mentioned & it sounded like you were hoping that someone would type in all that info for you.

    I would suggest that you use the link i gave & look up the school info you need. That aamc page has links to websites of all the schools. Also, do a search & see if you might find old posts that address your concerns and spend some time browsing through posts from the last few weeks.

    If you still have a pressing concern, then post your question and we'll be more than happy to help. :)

    You gonna tell me you don't believe Jalby or I either? We gave him honest advice. In general admissions deans of UC's will problably be annoyed by an applicant circumventing the system and "bothering" them.

    UCLA2000,

    don't worry, not referring to you guys. I really appreciate it when people who are in med school come back & share w/ us their experiences.

    The above poster i'm referring to is some obnoxious kid who claims to be in med school, jumps all @ the forums insulting veteran sdners (& mostly women) & is just downright nasty to everybody. Needs to be slapped @ a bit & put in his place. Everyone else, please excuse my bad temper today. I've just had enough of this crap!

    If your concern is valid and can only be resolved by talking with the Dean, then I don't see the problem in contacting him. If it is anything about your application, then I would not contact the Dean.

    I don't know his number, but Dean Ralston is a great guy and doesn't seem the type to get angry by talking with an applicant over the phone. These Deans are real human beings and not angry anal people who will reject someone because their telephone rang. Paranoia leads to many conspiracies.

    And as far as the fighting is concerned, I don't see it as a fight. I see it as Nefertari calling like it is. Freshmanitis is a tool.

    Thanks Souljah1

    See, I wanted to contact the Dean of admissions because I had some question regarding some academic past, not sure if any other admission personnel could answer that! As I mentiones, I posted the same questions here several times with rreally mixed responses! What do you think?

    To be honest, I really don't think he'll be able to help you. The admission committee at UCSF is comprised of many people, and the final decision is a collective one, not one made by the Dean. All that I can say is that the definitely look at trends in academic performance. So, if you have a shaky past, but have performed top-notch since then, I wouldn't worry too much about your past. Of course, some schools may not spend the time to do so, but most will. It was definitely the case with my application. ;)

    So, I don't really see how the Dean coudl help you. He won't say yes or no, but will rather assure you that your application will be thoroughly evaluated, and would also probably tell you that they look at more than just numbers.
