    hey, i jsut go rejected post-secondary from ucsf. I would relaly like to go to teh school, however. I know there is an eppeals process, consisting of a letter (1-page) sent directly to the Dean. I have never appealed before. What elements go into an appeal letter?

    i was rejected presecondary from UCSF, my appeal letter read something along the lines of "dear admissions staff, I feel I am a good fit with the Univ., i have close ties with Bay Area, am a strong applicant, blah, blah, etc. sincerley, lobster" it was short, under ten sentences. got the secondary a few weeks later along with a letter saying dean had approved or that i had been reviewed again, could be a pity secondary, i am sure they are happy to have me plead to give them money, interesting to see if i will be interviewed

    Sounds like they went on a pre-holiday rejection bender.
    I am working on an appeals letter right now. (Alternating with checking SDN, of course.) Can't possibly make it any worse, can it?

    Wowzer, is that via a letter in the mail? Does the website get updated?

    I would definitley appeal. It should consist on why you believe you are qualified to be interviewed and it should also be a partial update letter (unless you already did this for your secondary). Good luck!

    might be a coincidence, but I saw wowzer's post, then went home to find the letter (ugh) in my mailbox. thought it was a medical bill (heh heh, what stage of grief is denial?)

    yup, its a letter in the mail, and its elaborate and relaly heart-warming. It is also an original rejection letter and not just a template with the signature already there...the dean of admissions signs it and it gets sent out.

    I will appeal, and I have already sent them an update letter with activities and some other stuff. However, I don't think I'll have much luck considering I'm out-of-state.

    Thanks for the advice everyone!
