    Since I'm an out-of-stater, I only applied to UCLA and UCSF. I don't believe UCLA actually prefers Cali residents over non-Cali, so I think they use the same standards for everyone. I got theirs about a week ago - I have no idea what the cutoff is but my stats are above average.

    As far as UCSF is concerned, I haven't received one yet. I'm pretty sure the only people who have received secondaries thus far from UCSF are CA residents. Can anyone debunk this?

    UCLA does give preference to in-state residents, just not as much as UCSD, UCI, and UCD. LA and SF both have about 15-20% of their classes made up of non Cali residents. As far as the secondary disbursement at UCSF, they give them as they review them. State residency factors in the intitial screen, along with gpa, mcat, extracurrics, leadership, and the personal statement. They don't send out secondaries only to Cali residents first. It is just a little more difficult for out of state applicants to get a secondary.

    Well, I guess I'll go first. Just received a secondary from UCLA on the 28th of August (Still working on the last question).

    California Resident
    Undergrad: UCLA (Physiological Science & History)
    Sci GPA: 3.23
    Non GPA: 3.23
    Overall: 3.23
    26 - MCAT

    Graduate: CSULA, MS - Biology
    GPA: 3.84
    Thesis on Type II Diabetes

    Special Education Teacher for a local Middle School.

    Anyhow, I mention my ECs because as you can see UCLA doesn't look just at grades or mcats.

    Hope that helps those who may be discouraged by the 4.0/40+MCAT Premeds out there.
