    I've got one of these for UCSD a while back and heard that it was essentially a rejection. Is the same thing true (hold for interview = rejection) for UCSF? I mean, I can't think of very many people who would turn down an acceptance to this school.

    Here is the exact quote from gower at medicalgold.com

    "Of those submitting secondaries, approximately 37% are selected for interview and approximately 200 placed in a ranked hold category. Of those 200, approximately 10% will eventually be interviewed, the rest rejected. In addition to numerical criteria, interview decisions are made based on letters of evaluation and medically-related work experience."
