Alrighty... I was wondering if anyone has any experience with the "early decision" process, in general, and especially with UCSF. Assuming one is a good candidate, would early decision demonstrate strong and sincere interest in a school, thus helping you get in? Or is it just shooting yourself in the foot, since if you're deferred you enter the general applicant pool somewhat late. I don't know. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Eek!]" src="eek.gif" /> Any advice would be appreciated. Obviously I'm a year behind the rest of you who are awaiting Decisions. I'll be starting AMCAS this spring. Thanks!
