Hi everyone, I hope everyone has had a good application process and have had interviews or upcoming ones. Congratulations to those with acceptances already and to those still biting their nails, keep your head up. You have put all your best efforts into your applications, all you can do is let the process take its course. I'm writing in regards to my denial letter from UCSF. Evidently, I mailed the suppl along with the check (which they seemed to care more about) to the address I thought was for both the supp and the check. The address on the suppl is the address for the check. According to the statement provided on the last page, at the bottom of the supplemental, the apps are supposed to be mailed to a different address that is provided, not on the supplemental, but on a website. I guess it is more important to have the address of the bank on the supplemental but not the address to mail the supplemental. I admit, I did not follow directions. I'm sure others did not make that mistake, but how misleading is that? Why didn't they provide both addresses on the suppl? I believe it should be made more clearly. I've called UCSF, and they said, if my application was with the check, the bank just tosses the application and cash the check. My main problem is that, after I mailed my application, I wanted to make sure that it arrived to UCSF so that in case it didn't, I would have enough time to resend the application. Well, when I called the office back in October after I mailed my appli, they said they do not provide information on whether they received your application. Every other pharm school I have applied to provided vast amounts of reponses and information about my application status. What's worse is that, I find out that they didn't receive my application until after the deadline and in my denial letter. To be honest, I put all my heart into my UCSF application. I labored intensely on this application out of all my other ones because this school meant a lot to me. I felt I had a strong chance but it is unfortunate how it turned out. Luckily I have an acceptance elsewhere, so I am not stressing over this. In view of how my application was handled by UCSF, or lack of handling, has taken away the reverence I used to feel for UCSF. I mean no disrespect to anyone. I just feel, a school that is considered to be the top school and at the forefront of health sciences, should have a more thorough application process that is engaging between the school and its applicants in pursuit of getting the most out of its applicants. So, as a lesson,.... you know I don't really feel there is a lesson. Because I read over all the instructions doubly to make sure I had the address correct and that I did not leave any information out. I guess one lesson is make sure you mail the application first then the check, because as of now, I've been swindled by UC Regents out of 60 dollars. With gas prices now, that could be two full tanks of gas for my little 4 cylinder. Currently, I am still waiting on communicating with an admissions officer to see if I can have my check back, since UCSF said they did not receive my application. Has anyone had this problem or am I the only loser who is rambling bout this?
