Well, I received an interview from UCSF for ealry Dec. There is only one problem, the cost of 1 ticket from Newark, NY to San Fran is $1800; that's insane. I have always see myself living in Bay Area. I have been there once 4 months ago and thought San Fran was awesome. Questions 1) How many applicants are interviewed from out of state and actually get accepted? 2) How does this school compared to other schools such as Columbia in reputation? Thanks!
