    Yea, I got a fatty rejection fro UCI today too. No worries, I still have plenty of hope.

    This process does test your patience and will power though...

    Been on hold there since a week after completion. I think it's there way of saying, "you aren't good enough, but we won't reject you just in case 95% of our accepted pool decides they aren't coming here" or something along those lines

    is anyone else still pending review?? i've been complete since 8.25. i sometimes wonder if there is actually any SYSTEM to how uci orders their review of apps.
    whatever it is, it's definitely not rolling.

    The computer program picks who they want to keep. With several publications while researching at UCI I still cant get in they will not even look at my file. Some day they will realize they are missing a lot of highly qualified applicants...

    Its ok. Swallow and move on.

    :( :(

    That sucks. Isn't Irvine your alma mater?? booooooo :thumbdown:

    they should have at least interviewed you. not like you'd have to fly across the country or something for it. anyway, it's their loss, believe it! :smuggrin:

    would you by chance happen to know what criteria the computer program is set to? (i know this is futile but i feel like i have to ask anyway).

    I submitted my AMCAS in June and hadn't heard a thing (outside of the confirmation that they had my complete AMCAS). I finally called last week and was told that I'd been rejected (sans interview)- and they'd made the decision on 8/31!!!! What's with all this foot dragging and not telling us? gah!

    I guess I should be glad that I have not yet received a secondary?

    ....okay well, at least the pain gets to be postponed.

    Well yeah! Hello? Of course they are. ;)

    They put me on hold briefly (for like a week) before rejecting me pre-interview, but it was March by then (stupid August MCAT). Eh, like it would have mattered. I wrote a letter confessing my undying love for UCI to the Dean, but she was apparently unmoved. Guess that happens when you've got a bazillion other applicants.

    I heard one SMPer did get in to UCI last year. They had better make a very positive impression for us. :)

    haha yeah, the guy that got into UCI is a good buddy of mine from the SMP...it was funny because he got waitlisted and then dropped in with french pastries for everyone in the admin office! He got his acceptance shortly after :laugh:

    How could they not see through that? Does he work there or know the people, or just say "Hi, I'm an applicant. Here are some pastries :):wink-wink::)."

    That sounds like pure BS.


    BTW, what is an "SMPer?"

    Im sure they saw that he was kissing ass but 1.) it showed that he really wanted to go there and 2.) he really is a nice guy and 3.) he went in to say hi and check his application status and waitlist movement (he was UCI alum and also lives in the Irvine area).

    SMP=Special Masters Program at georgetown and I just call the people that went there SMPers

    so have I...kinda wierd isnt it?
    Apparantly they do not review applications in the order they were received. They have another system for reviewing them. I called today to ask why i was still pending review and was told this.

    arrgh! me too! I've been pending since 8/10!! I wonder what kind of strange system they have.. All this time I thought getting my app in super early would get it reviewed sometime this year!!! maybe I'll bake them some pumpkin muffins to try and speed things up a bit :p

    :laugh: SO true.

    Their review process it truly strange. They have not hesitated to review people whose applications were complete in September or later. (both to place them on hold and invite some to interviews)

    UCD seems to be so much more efficient (and more rolling!) with reviewing apps, and UCSD and even UCSF are not bad either. what's up with uci??

    This completely $hits on the idea of getting it in early.

    There should be a list compiled for SDNers of schools that do this so that they know where not to rush secondaries...
