    Hi everyone,

    I don't want to alarm anyone with the title of this message, but I thought I would start this thread for those interviewed at UCSF. Although they stated that results would not be out till December 16th, based on previous year trends, they may release the results sooner. Students I spoke to from last years batch said that results were out on Nov.29th and arrived by the 30th of Nov. I have not heard from them yet, but I would ask that if anyone hears any results from them, please post it on the forum.

    I spoke with them too this week and they said that they are still reviewing the files, etc. I don't really understand why the process is taking longer this year. Let's see what happens, but the waiting is torture :scared:

    Hi Desi dentist,

    maybe UOP and UCSF are going to declare results at almost the same time!! :eek:
    at UOP when one of my friends called up yesterday ..they told her that results are going to be out earlier..than dec16th!
    hopefully we will all get to know soon..so that decisions can be made by all of us..

    Hi everyone,

    I have been in touch with UCSF and I have learned that they have made their acceptance decisions, BUT they will not announce the results until early next week. So it looks like the wait is almost over. Let's see if we can get any sleep over the weekend ;)

    Just a reminder everyone, if you learn of your results today or anytime this week, please post it on this thread. If you will be accepting admission, please inform all of the other schools (including NYU), and if you are not accepting it, let them know so those wait listed have a chance. Thanks, and good luck :thumbup:

    Hi,

    I cannot believe how torturous the wait is! :scared: :confused: :( I spoke with Wanda too and as we spoke, she told me she has the complete list of accepted and wait listed students in her hand. However, the admission committee is not allowing her to reveal the names yet. She said as soon as she gets the word, she will inform us via e-mail. Let's hope for the best! :thumbup:

    Did anybody hear from UCSF yet? I spoke to Petri Gordon an hour ago and he told me the same that the results were in his hand but he didn't have permission from the admission committee to release them. He also added that they intend on releasing the results before Dec. 16, preferrably some time this week!
    Good Luck everyone

    hi,
    i dont think the results will be out today... :( , i'm going to make up my mind that the results will be out only on dec 16,,bcoz since monday waiting for the news has been so futile,,,,so i'm just going to forget about it for now.

    Hear is what I heard from other students and from my own calls today:

    1) From one source, the results should be out "preety soon".

    2) From another, the results should be out "early next week"

    3) From another, "in a day or two"

    So take your pick everyone. These guys are driving us nuts!! :scared:

    More UCSF Internal Gossip Report :rolleyes:

    The executive committee will be looking at the final list of selected candidates today and will authorize the release of the results "at some point" in the future. :rolleyes: I will be really surprised if they don't release the results at some point this week, considering everything that they put us through. Maybe we can be hopeful for tomorrow. If anyone hears anything different, please post.

    We need to turn the tables on them!!.. for a change.. :D :cool:

    Don't know what is taking them so LONG just to release some results right??
    You know what... we should all do ..keep calling the school UCSF/ UOP..in turns every 15-20 minutes ..everyone should take a turn in calling them ..asking them to release the results..telling them that we are considering others schools also..!! that should scare them off!. :cool:

    .You know if all their BEST choosen candidates opt out ..they will be left only with others who are not on their accepted LIST !! and go through the WHOLE DAMM process of selecting candidates all over again..and consider students who they are going to reject also ..
    WOW !! that will be a change ..and GIVING THEM a SCARE!.. :idea: :D
    Good Luck guys! :thumbup:

    Great idea Gaura :idea:

    A few of us have been doing this for the past three days anyway. :smuggrin: I have called at least twice a day and I have been rotating calls between the big three (Wanda, Petri, and Barbra). I know at least four other people who have been doing something similar. The fact of the matter is that some of us (not me :( have been accepted at other schools and are considering them as well. If UCSF does not act soon, they can lose their preferred candidates. Our careers and livelihoods are on the line and decisions should be made soon.

    Hey that is great work!!..GN and Desi Dentist
    I like your quote IDP revolution! Has a nice ring to it!

    I sure hope they will release results sooner---and these schools -UOP and UCSF-know very well that they are TOP NOTCH schools and students will any day DEFER their admissions at other schools just to get into their schools. Last year I know 4 of my classmates from dental school from back in my home country who did just that --deferred their seats just to get into UOP / UCSF/ UCLA/ UPENN ...because these are the best schools..! It really does depend on what you look for in your education.---
    Specialty, career path, life style, and amount of debt, traditional teaching or PBL, Reputation of the school/ staying near your family
    I would focus on these areas to make the right decision.

    UOP-
    -Fee- 200k
    -Teaching-Traditional lecture format and notes :thumbup:
    -Facilities-Top Notch-100% modern and up-to-date on the latest techniques and practice management technology/-Labs are the best and top notch- got to see it to believe it/ Best clinical facilities
    -Board Passing Rate- Very good!
    -Area- San Francisco! What can beat that! :)
    -Great schools to go to if you want to specialize.
    -UOP is also known for its extremely good clinical program, right next to fillmore street where all the restaurants, bars and coffee shops are, (one of the best streets in SF)!!
    -Pacific Pride day-If you had a chance to attend one of these- you know what I’m talking about!- school has an open house to potential applicants and family to come and check out the school. -tours, fin aid info, research displays.
    - Also heard that the students do well in licensing exams

    UCSF ~
    -Fee- (from their website-Tuition is $13,375* per quarter plus a first year mandatory instrument/laboratory kit fee of approximately $23,000, paid in four equal payments of approximately $5,750 (includes handpieces, articulators, endodontic apex locators, touch and heat instrument, cavitron, various hand instruments, etc). Entering students receive a list of fees and expenses applicable to the IDP curriculum prior to matriculation.)
    -Teaching-Traditional lecture format and notes- tops the nation in clinical productivity
    -Facilities- Great!
    -Research-Great-amount of funds received from NIH for research--good school to go to if you want to specialize; i think its a very research oriented institution
    -Patients-tons of patients in SF- students here seem to have little trouble finding enough patients/procedures to fulfill their requirements--do tons of lab work!
    -UCSF (in my opinion) is a well-rounded program that produces good general dentists and great specialists
    Area-view of the golden gate bridge, the ocean, the city :D
    Check this thread regarding UCSF research! .It tops in research funding too!
    http://forums.studentdoctor.net/showthread.php?t=209427&highlight=UCSF
    AND---texts along with an interactive CD was handed out during orientation so that students could start reading up!!
    -- Also heard that the students do well in licensing exams :thumbup:
    Good Luck :thumbup:

    Hey Enamelina,

    Well according to my friends at the school..they have had no problems meeting their clinical requirement! They are on top of it!.. :thumbup:
    Depends on how resourceful you are also right?..patients are also not going to go to someone who is slow and sloppy right..word gets around among patients too you know..so if you are smart, resourceful/ fast/ and do your job great ..im sure there will be no dearth of patients!..for you or for any student :cool:
    Well aren't we all eager to get into UCSF/UOP..and do our very best!?? :idea:
    Good Luck

    Just wanted to clarify that UOP is NOT a research oriented school, it's a clinical oriented school. There's reserch going on and available for students to participate, but is NOT a research oriented school. It's absolutly clinically oriented.

    Thanks for all the prasies though. Good luck :luck:

    :laugh: :laugh: Go ahead, do that. Make it easier for everyone else to get admitted and you bumped to the bottom of the list.

    With the horrible bench exam situation schools in CA have increased their application by many times, I can asure you they won't have any trouble filling their spots with qualified people.

    When schools interview they rank people in order in which they'll be called if needed. They select the first number to fill they're available spots and the rest get on the waiting list. So they don't have the meet again to decide who to call next if someone declines. They just go downt the list and so on.

    Sure, they may loose really desirable candidates, but those really desirable one usually are not desperate, because they know they'll get in somewhere. While the rest of us have to bite our nails until we got that call.

    Good luck everyone :luck:

    Hey you may right about the rest biting their nails..IF they have a low board scores so to speak and nothing on their resume'.and no experience. :rolleyes: :laugh: BUT..Schools also realise that they want the " cream" of students who have great board scores,experience, personality,good resume' to be at " their" school!..no one wants to lose the BEST CANDIDATES out there.. :idea: and yeah..maybe if candidates are calling too often and bugging the admission cordinator ..might be bumped off to the bottom of the list! : :eek:
    but if you have multiple school admissions in your hand ..you have nothing to loose by calling up!
    Best
