    Yes you are right about UCSF. I haven’t been taking them seriously given the cost of living there and forgot about them. Last year I saw someone get interviews on the 1st in the forum (I think)

    Yeah I believe UCSF usually send out interviews later on, late april and early May, so there is still a good chance!

    Ahh thanks peers! Talking here is a way of me dealing with my anxiousness (look at my username). I hope to see you all in one of these schools. Cannot wait for this to be over.

    Also something to remember is not everyone uses or knows about SDN so some may have gotten interviews later on but we just never knew about it. So lets keep our heads up high! There is still a good chance we will hear back from them

    Anyone applying for UCR postbacc? I have a few questions regarding their app. I’ve gone through the app just to see the length and what is needed (answering essay questions and whatnot) but I didn’t see a section for transcripts or letter of recs? Do those part come after submitting the app or completely filling out the application? Thanks in advance.

    I assume you would need to send them to the email/mail them to the address that they provided at the same time that you apply! That's what I did!

    I saw a quote that mentioned that UCI is currently performing interviews for those strong candidates and will still be doing interviews and invites for the rest of the candidates until the priority deadline and/or March 20th (on this thread).

    Hoping that we're still in the game. I don't really know how to really be a stronger candidate asides from volunteering and research. Really hoping to hear back soon!

    If any of you didn't get into any of the post-bacc programs to which you applied, what did you end up doing instead? I'm waitlisted for an interview at UCSD and just want to know what my options are haha.

    Sorry to clarify, they are currently doing interviews for strong candidates. They will still be doing interviews (and invitations?) until March deadline. It was from page 2 or 3 of this thread.

    We're all anxious so take my word and those you read here with a grain of salt. I don't mean to spread misinformation if it is false. I just wanted to bring up the fact that someone brought that up.

    They have extended the March deadline to the 20th, so we still have hope!

    Hey guys! I called UCI a and UCD yday and they said they haven’t looked thru 80% of applications so we have hope! Also they said if our app is under review it will say so on our app (i don’t know how accurate that is bc I’ve never heard of that but maybe they changed it this year)

    Nah you're good dude. I just wasn't aware that they openly made a distinction between "strong" candidates and "regular" ones, lol.

    I found it! It's post #112 on page 3. It actually utilized the word "competitive" not "strong."

    I'm applying as a re-applicant, so I'm still working on getting my LOR in. How long does it take for your LOR to appear on your status page? My letter writer told me he sent it today and it does not show that it has been submitted yet. Is there a delay in the system?

    It should show up immediately. You might need to send them another LOR request email through the portal.

    if this is really important to you then you have to do what you need to do. Your letter writer already has the letter saved in their computer all they have to do is upload it again. But I’m just saying it personally showed up immediately right after my letter writer notified me. But goodluck hope you get it fixed or maybe you can call the UC consortium to ask

    I was wondering if there is anyone who did not exactly meet the letter of recommendation requirement (1 science professor, 1 community service, and 1 professor/employer) and was still able to secure an interview?

    Does anyone have any advice on what to do during a gap year (to build your resume to apply again) if you don't get into a program for this cycle?

    [INACCURATE]?
    I'll keep the post up just in case someone refers to it.

    Hmmm, can someone confirm about UCSF doing interviews? I called* as to how much of the applications they have gone through (someone made a post here stating that UCI and UCD has not gone through 80% of their apps); they mentioned they only started going through the applications. I followed up with when can we expect a response, the lady responded with " ... we will start sending out invitations late April." Do you all think there is a possibility that she just didn't know some people got invitations? Is there anyone else I can contact? If anyone can corroborate/contradict this statement please do.

    Also makes me nervous that UCI/UCD sent out (some) invitations already, but also agreed to a deadline extension.

    *I called the number provided for UCSF on the Portal and asked to speak to anyone with information about the program for which she responded that she can help.

    I don't think whoever you spoke to would not be aware of invitations being sent out. the person who posted that they got an interview at UCSF might be confused on schools or could not be telling the truth. Especially if the person said they'll start sending invitations late April.
