    Has anyone been rejected after an interview at UCSF School of Dentistry yet?

    Yes people have been rejected after an interview. Supposedly, on each interview day, only 50% are accepted into the program, which is approximately 10 people. I know a couple of people that got rejected from
    UCSF a couple weeks after the interview, but still got into good schools like UCLA. If you don't hear from UCSF right away, that means good news is coming.

    Just looking at the Predents stats for UCSF, it seems like matriculation rates are VERY high. I hope I get an acceptance after Jan 15.... :(

    I'm not sure if I will back down on Tufts if I get an acceptance from UCSF, but I know that I'd have to sit down and think about that one for a long time if it did come to that situation. There are a lot of good things about UCSF like a smaller class size and good location. ALSO, I'd be able to get WICHE funding, which is a big plus.

    Looking through the 09 applicants on predents I saw 1 or 2 who've interviewed this cycle and then been rejected from UCSF too.

    Yea, probably more are rejected, but only a fraction of people actually use predents, so I would assume more have been rejected.
