Hi sassy doc! Hi other future UCSDers! I'm heading to UCSD this upcoming fall, and I'm super excited about it! I'm also looking forward to the second look weekend. I mean, I don't really need a second look to decide that I want to go there; I just want to spend more time getting to know the place where I'll be spending the next four years of my life. Have you all decided for sure on UCSD or are you still weighing your options?
The second look thingamajigger is April 27th-28th. I think they sent out an e-mail with the info asking us to RSVP, with promises of more information to follow.
Wow, Harvard vs. UCSD... an enviable dilemma!
Oh, and Hednej, if you don't mind me asking: in what area are you level 60? You know, just in case we do end up being classmates.
Thanks, SeventhSon! I have an "otherwise" question about housing. I signed up on the student housing waitlist, but have heard that it can take quite a while to get a place. Are there other affordable housing options in the area? I'm an older-ish non-trad and will be bringing my rather vociferous kitty with me, so I realize that I may have some difficulty finding a place...
I am just curious how many UCSD undergrads are thinking about matriculating on here...Anyone?
I was wondering what percentage of UCSD M1s end up staying in Graduate Housing? Is the on campus graduate housing generally preferred by med students over regular housing that you would find on your own?
Could any current UCSD med students please give their opinions/recommendations on housing options? Thanks!!
Anyone else wonder why our primary care ranking fell 20-some places in the last year? I'm not worried, it's just odd.
probably, however i think the % entering primary care is averaged over several years, lets just hope its not the residency director assesment score that changed!
i was wondering if any of the awesome current MS1s/2s can give a preview of what the electives consist of/what duties are? I know there are a ton of choices, I guess I was wondering some specific first hand impressions
I've been advised that doing electives during 2nd year fall, while you are taking anatomy, is rough.
Hmm, I was wondering about this too. Can any current students shed some light on electives? Do we get any guidance in choosing them (such as: "This elective is really time consuming, so don't take it during _____ quarter," or "This one is great if you're interested in _______")? Thanks in advance!
I definitely hope so! BTW, SD doesn't give out merit scholarships, does it?
