    Can you believe it? Rejected by UCSF, so I sent in an appeal letter. Then yesterday, guess what I got in the mail. A SECONDARY!! I was astounded. Guess I'm back in the game. Anyone have any advice on how to handle it from here?

    What'd you write in your appeal letter? Stuff about your accomplishments? This is very interesting, I want to know how to best do this if I am denied interviews, can you PM me or post here some tips on doing this or if you feel comfortable letting me see the actual letter that would be heplful as well. Either is fine, thanks. Good luck!

    Whoa! Cool! I am in the middle of writing my appeal as well... A lot of people on SDN have said to go for it, and now you are living proof that it can work.

    BTW, thanks to Mr. Bean, ConstantlyWaiting, Wednesday, derisivewords, Scooby Doo, and coop for the support. ;)

    No advice here Nite, since I'm in application limbo w/UCSF (i.e. no rejection or 2dary), but either way that's hella cool. You're my hero!!

    Congratulations! I just got a rejection from UCSF and I was also planning on appealing the decision. Can you please PM me as well?? I would love to know what you wrote in your appeal letter.

    You do realize this post is almost 14 years old! o_O

    I'm quite sure this person is an attending now. ;)

    What UCSF did sounds like they just wanted OP's money and were going to reject them anyway.

    Looks like OP is an attending psychiatrist now and still an active poster

    also...

    ....guess that appeal letter didn't really work after all

    Does USCF still have this policy? Sounds crazy... every pre-interview rejection can appeal? That seems like a huge pain in the ass for the admissions office

    He/she is, in fact, an attending, and as @MeatTornado said still posts occasionally.

    This is what's great about the internet. I love seeing random things like this in spite of my annoyance with the necro bumps.

    I don't think it can hurt. I mean, at this point, what do you have to lose?
