    any idea on how these programs look at re-applicants and why the deadline for submission is much later?

    I think the only true reaplicant program is UCLA. The rest are for both re aplicants and first time.

    Maybe rocketsfan is referring to the May 8 priority and final deadline for reapplicants or people who've applied to med school?

    In that case I'm unsure why the date is so far back. Since first time applicants are considered those who havent applied to med school and those who are applying to the Consortium for their second time.

    Also adding in my two cents on the SFSU post-bacc. I've heard from several sources (students, advisors in the grapevine, and I believe I ran into an SDN thread where this was brought up) that they've been going through a transition in leadership. Dr. Rothman was the Director of a strong program up until recently. The transition has diminished the quality of the program. Just my opinion-- I'm sure there are others who have found success with this program!

    I had heard that it's because people are still trying to get off the waitlist for med schools so they give more time to figure out if you got in to med school before submitting for the postbac program.

    I just submitted my application this morning at 5AM, but I have sent in all my supporting documents back in January. Do you'll think I will be okay? Does the application have to be considered complete before the deadline in order to count?

    Given that you submitted your mail in portion of your application well in advance, you should be fine.

    Hey guys, quick question?
    I have submitted my application on 2/27 and all the documents have been sent right away. Does anyone know, if the Consortium is still uploading the letter of recommendations? or it is too late for the application to consider complete.

    Anyone know if the programs just review your application once and that's it? If we submitted our documents for UCI before the priority deadline and they didn't send us an invitation with the first round, does that mean we won't get one at all? Thanks!

    Seconding this question. I'm hoping we can submit our Winter quarter grades as an update to supplement our apps.

    I feel like that's the case unless Re-applicants are reviewed at a later date. In general I feel like UCI doesn't accept many re-applicants based on previous cycles but I may be wrong.

    I still have 2 documents pending :(, the same two that I brought in in person!
    Have any other schools sent out interviews other than Irvine?

    So far two people in this thread have interviewed at UCI. I think late March to early April is when UCSF and UCD start sending out interviews. UCI usually stops sending them the first week of April. Hopefully in the next two weeks we see some progress

    Whoa! That's a lot earlier than I expected. I feel excited but also more anxious.

    Also anxious applicant to UCI.. I sent all my documents by Feb 12, but my application is still pending bc my transcript hasn't been uploaded. I know it's been sent because I contacted my undergrad. Will people whose applications are still pending still be considered for UCI? It's the one I'd like to do most because I love the area and it's so close to home. Anyone else in the same situation with their documents? My emails and phone calls to UC Davis have gone unanswered.

    You’ll want to check with the Consortium or even Individual Programs. I believe the deadline for a complete application so that Programs will accept it is 4/1

    We're all pretty anxious, but I can assure everyone there is still time and opportunities. I want to add to this to give some ease.
    *These are approximates and may change yearly, let's do our best to keep each other updated :highfive:
    UCI has two interviewers, session is 40 min long
    -Interviews are sent out after priority deadline 3/1 to the first week of 4/1. There's still 2 weeks left to interview [fingers crossed]
    -Acceptances take 1-2 weeks sent by email, rejections sent out by email in mid April
    UCD- first interview session is on Skype (20 min long), 1-2 weeks later second interview is in person both group and individual interviews.
    In both cases applicants are called to interview, if one doesn't pick up it is followed by interview confirmation details by email.
    -Interviews usually sent starting first week of 4/1 and continue mid April for interview dates in mid April. Second interviews are a week later in late April or first week of May.
    -Acceptances 1-2 weeks from second interview, unsure how acceptances are received
    UCSF- two interviewers, session duration unknown
    -Interviews usually sent out early to mid April continuing to first week of May
    -Acceptances usually 1-2 weeks from interview, Rejections sent by mid May
    UCR- I don't know much about...whether its individual or group interviews. Seem to favor UCR students or those interested in UCR community.
    -Interviews usually sent out late May
    -Acceptances first week of June

    Hope this helps, if I miss something hopefully someone can fill in!

    This is highly upsetting. I understand they are short staffed but March 15th has come and gone and they are misplacing/still uploading application materials of many people. My materials were all sent in the same day well before the deadline and everything is uploaded except one LOR. I hope myself and others are not excluded from UCI's early deadline as well as the normal March 15 deadline for other schools.

    The central center (application processors) apparently notifies the schools about the delays in uploading documents.
