    I'm applying. Probably not getting in, but it's worth a shot. Still in the process of completing my supplemental app.

    I guess UCSF is officially starting the application process because I just got an email that told me my application was received as is being processed. They will be mailing out interview invitations in late December and early January so it will be awhile before we start hearing about interviews.

    I am assuming they email you once they actually start to go over your file and make sure it is complete. I submitted mine on the 31st and I have not received a confirmation email at all o.0...just a receipt for my supplemental payment..

    I hope we will be notified about interview invites very soon... I have another interview to schedule in January/February, but I want to steer clear of any dates that may conflict w/ SF's...

    In the confirmation email I received from UCSF informing me that they received my supplemental application, it says: "Interviews are by invitation only. Invitations will be mailed between late-December and early January. All applicants will be notified of their status by the end of January."

    Hopefully we will all get some good news soooooonn!

    You're right. I remember it was around Christmas & it was like an early xmas present for most of us. Don't think too much about it, everyone. It's the holidays! Go out & have fun.

    I thought they were planning to mail out interview invitations via snail mail, but I just got my invite via email. They sent 11:05AM PST to me, so check your emails and spam folders.
