    Something is wrong with your application. Maybe you don't have a good LOR, Bad PS or perhaps you aren't applying broadly enough. With an AA of 21 and 3.95 gpa this seems very odd.

    Hey guys,

    I appreciate the support. I graduated top 5 in my college. The admission committee said my LOR was one of the best one they have ever written from my college. I applied to 5 schools this cycle. (6 previously, almost all schools were different). Except for dentist letter (I was uncertain what was written) everything else even from work supervisor letter was phenomenal.

    I will try asking admission committee but I am thinking that dentistry isn't meant for me anymore. Plus most admission committee don't have time to review my request any way. My undergrad health profession office said there is absolutely nothing wrong with my application. They viewed my personal statement before conducting mock interview to give me a committee letter.

    My DAT score expired this cycle. There is 1 school that had not given a decision regarding my application status. I gave my best shot at dental schools in 3 times, it's time for me to change.

    Good luck on your dental career path guys! I hope you 'll make it through and create lots of memories. Also, wish me luck on pursuing another career path :)

    I think you aren't applying to the correct schools. This is very odd. I am an international applicant with 21AA and a 3.78 c/s gpa and already got a couple of acceptances. 7 interviews to date. Have you considered going to another country like Australia? or elsewhere. It can be significantly cheaper in some cases and you will become a dentist. just be sure you can come back to the USA and practice. Your situation is very puzzling but I encourage you not to give up.

    Have an interview schedulede for 1/29 but not sure whether I should go. Already paid my deposit to Upenn and got some scholarship there. Only reason I would choose UCSF over upenn is bc I dont think I will ever have a chance to actually live in Calif if not the school.. Should I go just to check it out?

    Received the interview invite last week as well! Is an interview this late for waitlist spots?

    No, you are part of the last batch of UCSF (I believe 5 interview groups if I remember correctly for January and February) and you have a chance of being admitted in.

    Do the student interviews weigh as much as the faculty interviews?

    We were told, at least when I interviewed, that they are weighed the same.

    Can someone call UCSF and ask them when they will release the results? I called last week and they said next week but this is stressing me out. lol

    UCSF just emailed me asking to check my syllabi for two English classes, and the admin officer told me that there is a potential risk that I need to take an additional English course to satisfy the pre-req. One of my English class is a mandatory first-year writing and the other is offered by the English department. I am really not sure why that has risen a concern (all 1st-year writing classes are mandatory P/NP at my institution).

    I am quite shocked and worried upon receiving this piece of news because it is already too late to take Spring 2018 classes, and I have already gotten my summer planned out abroad to make adjustments there to take summer classes. They told me this when it's already so late in the game, particularly when I have turned down all my other dental school offers.

    If they do ask me to take another course, what do you guys think I should do!? I am super anxious now.

    I feel like this means that we're not going to get accepted today, cause it seems like they already called the ones that they want to accept.

    Yeah I agree. I think they’re waiting to see if those people will accept their seats and then they’ll take it from there. I feel like I’m on some kind of unofficial waitlist. I got the same email on December 1st. It’s been rough waiting :(

    Maybe look into some online English course that will fulfill this requirement? I had a sociology class online and nowadays there's even anatomy classes online. Of course, definitely check with their admissions office to see if it's approved.

    Wow, I can imagine how rough would it be to wait so long, but I feel like that means they are still considering you because they have kept you in the pool since December, which is great.

    Does UCSF require sociology courses? I'm seeing some old threads saying yes, but wanted to be sure.
