    Nope, I haven't heard from them yet. But they should be sending out the invites and rejections any time soon! :scared::)

    Based on the 2007 UCSF: Interview thread on SDN, the majority of UCSF interview invites were postmarked on December 23rd.

    Despite this postmark date, some individuals actually received it earlier (several days?). Best of luck with your X-mas "gift".

    We should start stalking our mailmen on Monday. I know I received my letter either on the 23rd or 24th of last year and it normally takes one day for the letter to arrive in SoCal.

    Interview letters were mailed last year on Christmas Eve, and rejection letters from this round were mailed 1 or 2 days earlier.

    I got my interview letter the day after Christmas since I live in the Bay Area, while a friend of mine who didn't make the interview round(also from the Bay) got her letter before Christmas.

    If it makes u feel better. Over the last two years, I've collected enough reject letters to publish my own children's (Curious George-like) picture books.

    yeah kinda sad....I know exactly how you feel.

    Try not to check your email so much (cuz its disappointing after awhile) and Keep your head up. Sometimes the best things in life happen when we least expect them.

    i applied for UCSF this year but I sent the supplemental to the payment address. I emailed the admissions office and they told me this could affect my application and that I should follow directions. They told me to mail in another application(no changes, they will check with orginal) but to have it next day delivery for them to accept my application. I told them to screw it(well, actually in my mind I told them to screw it). I immediately called up my bank and cancel my check. Now seeing all these rejections, I'm glad I did it. I saved $60! :thumbup:

    Best of luck to all of applying. I believe I got my interview letter around Dec. 21 or 22. I was stalking the mailman every day until I got the letter. If you think this one is bad.... wait until after you get the interview. They mailed us their decision, now that drove me crazy! @[email protected]

    If you don't get a interview at UCSF don't worry. There are other schools out there and hopefully you'll get in to one of them!

    I did the same thing (sent the supplemental and payment to the same place). I ended up just calling admissions and they said they would forward my application and fee to their rightful places.

    I was expecting one of the admissions officers' signatures to be at the bottom of the letter, then I saw it was Koda-Kimble?? There were over 1600 applicants; did she really sign like a thousand rejection letters? What a sucky day at work!

    There are machines that can copy the signature of someone. It's pretty easy.

    Haven't gotten my letter yet either--good luck to everybody waiting!

    unless she has one of those signature writers like on CSI where the machine recognizes the actual stroke and precisely writes the signature...
