    I mailed them their UC supplemental application ages ago and I have yet to hear back from them. Who knows...I wouldn't panic yet; I'm out of state so I'm not expecting any miracles.

    Make sure you check the UCSF application status page (https://www.som.ucsf.edu/APPSTATUS/LOGIN.ASP). I received a secondary app but they never bothered to let me know it was up. Fortunately, I have been compulsively watching the site as of late.

    Good luck,
    PD

    Hey! Don't give up hope. I totally thought that I was going to get rejected. My transmission dates were 7/26 and 7/28 (the earliest they could possibly be) and I just saw TODAY on the web site that I had been selected (and I had been checking every day). So they definitely are reviewing them in a random manner.

    Good luck.

    don't worry i say. I haven't heard scrap from them yet either, and I sent my application out to them like a month ago i think.

    Y'all need to relax. It is way too early in the game to start thinking schools are rejecting you. The UC system is notorious for moving slow. Just b/c someone got a secondary and you didn't does not mean that you will be rejected. Stop putting that sort of negative energy out there. Stay patient and positive. It is August for chronic's sake....the adcom office is still partially occuppied with the class of 2006. I think the ball will really start rolling in mid-September. I had to wait until November to get a secondary from them, but in the end it was all good. Breathe.

    I agree with souljah1. It is too early to start worrying... UCSF secondaries are sent out on a rolling basis. I didn't receive mine until mid September but things turned out fine for me. It's difficult not to let the admissions game get to you, but patience is really your best ally. And this is coming from someone who has turned to the Dark Side... :D
