Had to go check.
Yep. Status page still indicates that they received my AMCAS app.
No rejection ever sent, no secondary ever sent.
Now where's the luv?

Thought about calling them at one time... then I thought, "what's the point."

I have yet to receive a rejection letter. But since I did get the JMP interview, maybe I don't get one yet.

Look at the signature...it's the same. The use of the word "Progresso", etc. ;)

Nah, he's complaining cuz I also posted this one on another thread (But I think it's hillarious!)

And what does this have to do with pre-allo? Well, the penguin on the left is me, and the one on the right is the adcom. :(

To Brickhouse... The new avatar is 10x better than the old one!

Sorry about the rejections guys...all I have to say is that UCSF needs to get off its stupid high horse and realize that it's state medical school (aka..it should accept and accomadate a higher number of california residents). Personally, I hate UCSF and the Bay Area in general ..with a PASSION..so I won't even be applying...but still...it puzzles me how people get into Ivy medical schools and then get rejected by UCSF. Proof positive that this process is RANDOM. Let me reiterate...I HATE UCSF and the Bay Area as well...I can't wait to get out of this hellhole.

You think the Bay Area is bad, you should visit Columbus, Ohio. That's a REAL hellhole.

if you hate it here, you'd probably hate 90% of the US.

The following cities are GREAT places to live: New York City, Chicago, Boston, Los Angeles, San Diego, and Philadelphia

The following cities are HORRIBLE and I'd rather slit my own throat with a butterknife than live there: San Francisco is #1 on the list, Dallas, Houston, Washington DC, Kansas City, St. Louis, Louisville, Atlanta, Montgomery, and practically any city in the "deep south"
