i drove down this weekend to party with first-year med students after their friday final......

stayed at my friends' apartment next to scripps-mercy hospital in hillcrest......2 bed / 2 bath for $650/person!!!!!!!!!! a steal!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

then i went to a wedding in del mar.....absolutely beautiful!!!!!!!

as june marches along, i'm coming to the realization that i'll be moving east next month.....i'm definitely excited to finally start med school...just wish ucsd would come through with good news!

here's to you all and to me....let's get phone calls this week!!!!!!!!!!!

I grew up and lived in SD my entire life. Now that I will most likely be leaving for the east coast, I realize how great life in southern California is.:(

someone mentioned earlier that Dr. Kelly is now the sole decider on our apps... so i'm thinking that maybe we'll find out sooner rather than later (ie in a few days rather than a few weeks like last year) if we're on the list or off of it. I think last year the whole committee met again.

what do you all think?:oops:

if its only one person (dr. Kelly) then I would imagine it would take longer as she prob has to deal with the school year ending on top of the new apps starting to come in.

why do you think the school year ending would affect her? i thought she was only involved in admissions...

also, do you think she looks at the apps coming in now or in like august?! i didn't get my secondary till november, so i don't know when they start sending out secondaries...

Hey guys, i just spoke with Brian and wanted to give you the same update he gave me. About 150 people responded to that email and are still on the list, and they may or may not trim that down themselves in the following weeks. He did say they offerred 4 people spots yesterday and that as of now they are a full class. He does think that a few more spots will open through mid-July, but he cant say for sure. Hope that helps and good luck to everyone!

Some grim news, i just called the office and was told that they had trimmed the pool themselves and that I was one of the people who didnt make it. Best of luck to everyone still on the list and I now begin the journey as a re-applicant!

Ouch Dreamman. I was a re-app this year and I got in. You can do it! Sorry to hear about that. I guess now all we can do is wait for snail mail from UCSD telling us if any of us are off the waitlist (rejected :( ) . Best of luck to everyone!!! :luck::luck::luck::luck::luck::luck::luck:

I'm thinking/hoping since none of us has gotten an alternate list email, it hasn't been sent out yet.

yes... wait i think that means i'm rejected right, because if you're still on the alternate list, you wouldn't have a final decision letter sent...

Still sitting tight here. Had a nice trip to SoCal last week and loved the weather. It'd be a dream to go to med school in such weather. So good.

No phone call here. In my experience, Dr. Kelly makes phone calls right away, likely over the weekend... Here's to hoping I'm wrong!

Hi All, I've been lurking on this thread for a while but haven't posted anything yet. I'm another one of those still-in-the-hold-puddle swimmers. I don't know if others have done this already, but I called Brian and he said that those three spots hadn't been given out as of this morning, but that Dr. Kelly was going to call this afternoon. I don't have the best feeling about it, but thought I'd contribute my knowledge since I've been surfing this thread for such a long time :) Good luck everybody!

You must've called this morning. Brian emailed me and said one of the spots was filled, and that Dr. Kelly will probably make the remaining two offers this afternoon or tomorrow, which means we all might have to wait just a little longer... I gotta say though, Brian's a star. He's definitely been helping to keep me sane through this entire process.

So who wants to get an update for all of us tomorrow? I feel like I'm approaching obsessiveness.

I agree, Brian has been absolutely wonderful! He has kept me slightly sane too...and I also feel like I'm approaching obsessiveness, but this is a big deal that determines our future, so I feel like obsessiveness is justified :)

Hey Guys, I've been reading this thread for a few months but have been too busy to register and post.

I spoke w/ Brian yesterday and he said he'll be on vacation, so don't panic if you call in realizing he's gone.

But I do agree, Brian is doing an AWESOME job.
