Submitted on 6/16, verified on 6/22, and I just got an email last night that my application is complete and is being submitted for review. Almost a month of processing!

This thread is really quiet compared to previous years... :wideyed:

Anyone who's lurking, on the sign-up sheet they sent out for this first wave, interview dates are from 10/5 to 10/20. I believe they are going to send out more waves of interviews because on the DentStay application form, the possible interview dates to choose from go all the way until January.

Good luck everyone!

does anyone know how many acceptances UCSF offers? Out of the ~300 interviews, I've been told ~150 but that seems a bit high? (lol if u cant tell I don't want to get my hopes up about getting accepted)

Thanks in advance!

Here's a link to UCSF SOD admission data from the past several cycles (most recent is the class of 2018): Institutional Data | School of Dentistry

They offer spots to roughly 150 people and of those 85-90 students enroll. The school probably staggers out the acceptances to not overfill the class. For example, they could offer acceptances in 3 batches to 50 people, and of those, roughly 30 will actually enroll at the school from each batch.

hey you mind telling me any important info about interview logistics and the like? I kind of have exams so couldnt attend and got an interview, so dont wanna mess it up. Thanks.
They recorded the vid and I'm guessing it will be posted/sent out soon. We had to sign a student agreement to not share any specific details about the interview-- sorry. Especially since this video link was only sent out to interviewees, I don't feel comfortable sharing.

I'm guessing they'll send the link out to interviewees, otherwise I'll keep an eye out. The admissions office does have a youtube channel, but I think all of the videos are private so we can't see them if we don't have the link.

Rejected with a 3.75 GPA and a 23 DAT (OOS)... definitely feels bad because this was one of my top choices, but based on the stats of other rejected students it seems like they are giving OOS kids a hard time.

Sorry to hear guys :( you are all so qualified and another dental school will be so lucky to have you! I'm wondering if you guys were offered an interview? Or was it a rejection w/o interview?

Rejected today! Somewhat surprised and certainly disappointed.

Out-of-state with a 28 DAT and 3.98/3.98 GPA. Thought it would be good enough for an interview at least! Oh well. Good luck, everyone!
