crest29, is that the same ucsd free clinic that ucsd pharm and med students work at? Have you ever seen them there?

That's pretty impressive that you got an interview at Purdue. I was going to apply, but then I spoke with the Dean on the phone and he said for out-of-state students, you pretty much had to have a 3.8+ to even be considered. Seeing that you had a 3.38, either he didn't have his facts straight or maybe all your ECs and LORS helped you out.

hey endless!
yeah the free clinics are a really really awesome experience. i tried out all three of them. pacific beach and downtown serve mostly the homeless population while the baker clinic sees many spanish speaking immigrants who dont' have health insurance. yeah i was suprised by my interview at purdue too, though.. the thought of going out to indiana sure isn't very impressive to me. . yeah! have a great time at ucsd. you're going to love it !
