For those interested, the financial aid office at UCSF will be posting on the internet very soon the (projected?) tuition/fees for the upcoming year. I am not sure where they obtained the numbers because I didn't think the information would be known until much later but he sounded confident about the numbers. Anyway, he told me fees (which is tuition) will be $21,610 for a California resident, so the total cost for everything will be $41,650 for 1st year students. Obviously this is at UCSF so I'm sure it varies to some degree between the UC's. From last year, that's a 35% jump I believe.
