    Does anyone have that sheet from UCSD interview that states the total class hours for UCs (and I think USC and stanford as well)? If so, can you post up these hours? Thank you.

    Here it is:

    Number of class hours in the preclinical curriculum (including all mandatory lectures, labs, seminars, small class sessions, and clinical correlates but NOT exam hours):

    Avg number among US medical schools: 1592 (from AAMC Curriculum Directory 2000. Average of 117 medical schools who provided data as hours)

    UC Irvine: 1467
    UCSF: 1475
    UCSD: 1517
    UCLA: 1520
    Stanford: 1571
    UC Davis: 1597


    Hope this helps!

    I don't think the number for UCSF reflects the curriculum changes. There is now much less class time.
