    From my other UCLA thread:
    Observation: on the interview threads, there are no overlaps for the names on UCSF/UCLA. While I'm sure there are many overlaps overall (outside of SDN), this lead me to wonder if they exchange names Ivy league style - like when Harvard lets an undergrad in early action and Yale/Princeton then reject him when April comes. Thoughts?

    It's possible.. although I've thought that this could happen amongst every medical school. The reason I think this it is because it's such a crapshoot to get in.. schools I thought would reject me have invited me for an interview, and schools that I thought were easy to get in have put me on hold. Go figure.. Are they collaborating?? hmm

    In my experience, it's a little different: UCLA and UCSF were the only UCs I interviewed at. No love from UCI, UCSD, and UCD. I have some friends who had the same situation last year.

    I have heard that the UCs talk to each other ... not sure if it's true, though.

    i think the UC's talk to each other. i interviewed at UCSF and will be interviewing at UCLA. but i've been put on hold at UCSD and UCI *sigh*.
    weird system. but then again, this whole application process is random. u never know.....:confused:
    and im sure there are brilliant people out there who will interview at all the UC's.....so who knows.

    I don't know about the sharing, but I know last year when I was applying I applied to UCSD, UCSF, and UCLA all MSTP. And guess what...the only one to interview me was UCSF for MSTP.

    i think the UCs might share names. When I went to interview at UCLA, my interviewer kept trying to tell me why I should go to UCLA over UCSF. But I never told him I interviewed at UCSF before. Weird...

    Cool - so since Irvine is blowing me off, does this mean UCSF will take me? I think I'll choose to believe that - it makes for a nice weekend.
