Members don't see this ad.
I am a Cali resident and I have not heard from any of the UCs post secondary. UCI put me on hold for an interview.
But how depressing is this? Do they only have 40+/4.0 applicants this year?
I can't get any information from UCI about why they put me on hold. I was thinking that maybe if I send them an update of the things that I have been doing they'll get me off the dreaded list.
I think I am starting to develop chronic depression...:)

The only thing I received was a small white envelope from UCLA that gave me a bloody heart attack. All it said was they haven't started yet or something..

maybe is it possible that they got a LOTTA apps this year and are bogged down?

ucsf hasn't even contacted me about whether or not they want a secondary and my file is complete everywhere. and i would LOVE to go there.

Just hang in there. It is still very early for the UC's. I think you should be happy that UCI put you on hold. There is a possibility that they will interview you later, and that is more than allot of Cali applicants. Also, I don't think it can hurt to send them an update on your progress.

uc's are very, very slow. i would just be patient. i was surprised to have already gotten 2 uc secondaries, ucd and uci. i just got uci recently. i really though i'd be getting secondaries around december, judging from the experience of friends of mine. so don't lost hope... it's annoying, but hopefully we'll get to stay in the state at the end of this LONG process.

Hey guys, hang in there. Trust me, going to school in California is DEFINATELY worth the wait. I'm still wearing shorts, and its almost November! God, I couldn't imagine being anywhere else.

Here was my timetable:

UCSF
secondary, 11/02
interview invite 12/02 (scheduled for 1/03)

UCLA
secondary, 10/02
interview invite 1/03 (UCLA solo), 11/03 (Drew/UCLA)
acceptance into Drew/UCLA program: 2/03

UCSD
secondary 10/02
interview invite 3/03

UCI
No Secondary

UC Davis
secondary, 9/02
interview invite 11/02
acceptance way after that

Good luck. :)
