Hey everyone,
I have a quick question for you. I love the San Francisco area, and am wondering if I should even bother applying to UCSF w/ my stats. I have a 3.75 GPA and a 20AA/21PAT DAT. What do you think?

Thanks!

Who knows, I am an Idaho resident as well. They don't accept tons of OOS applicants, but if it is somewhere you really want to go you may as well try it. Your stats are pretty solid, but your 3.75 GPA is that cumulative or science? You have a 20 AA, do you have any low scores that would be a red flag (i.e. 15 QR)?

I would go for it. The cost of applying is minimal down the line and you don't want to have any regrets.

Of course! The thought of only 3 more years
is far too enticing to pass up
