    Hurray! I got my secondary in the mail today from UCSF. :) They must really want to get to know you -- and they'll find out with those additional 12 questions!

    On the first page, it says to complete the enclosed UCSF application - 2 copies. well... I only have 1 copy, so am I just missing a copy or are you supposed to make a copy for them?

    Thanks!

    ricegirl,

    I just filled out one copy and they were cool w/that. I didn't even notice that '2 copies' text. I also asked them if it'd be ok to just print out my own answers to those questions using Word rather than use the blue sheets...they're fine w/that as long as you reproduce the questions above each of your answers. I got an interview so i think that approach works.....

    good luck w/the app!

    waiting,

    thanks for the info, esp about the essay questions. I was trying to think of some way of tying in all the questions into one beautiful story of my life - thank goodness that's not necessary!

    good luck on your interview - you'll have to keep the board updated with how it goes. :)

    Hi,

    I'm working on the secondary, and I basically addressed all of these questions in my personal statement. Did anyone have the same problem? if so, did you just paraphase what you said in your ps?

    Also, there are only 4 blue pages which came with the application - is this the page length limit?

    thanks for the advice.

    good for you finished the sf secondary, it took me looong time to finish it. :)

    i just got one copy, and they have no prob w/ that. most of the questions already been answerred in aads applic, so i will stay w/ 4 pages limit. in fact, i only used three and half.

    good luck w/ your applic!

    ps: which school did you go for undergrad?

    i should thought about it from your name. :) the reason i am asking b/c i met a girl in MU, she also from TX and got interview from TX schools.

    i thought she was you :rolleyes: i'd like to meet someone from this board. regarding the ann arbor, it is true that i never like a place so much, and it should be a great place to spend four years! just the cost is 20k higher vs cali schools.

    anyway, interview is a very good time for me to visit different places, to meet intresting people, and to make new friends... i got what i want in ann arbor.

    have fun w/ your interview, good luck for your class!

    best regards

    snowman --

    first, congrats on becoming a senior member! :D ;) :D

    I think it would be cool to meet someone from the board as well. Actually, I was emailed several weeks ago by a reader, but not a poster, who was at the Baylor interview. :cool:

    the interview season is still on going, hopefully we'll get to meet some fellow SDNers! :D

    Hey Ricegirl...
    WHen they said 2 copies, they meant there are 2 sheets of papers in the first section.
    I caught that word "2 copies" and thought about it. And I believe that's what they meant.
    bye

    skim2,

    are you talking about the 1st page (filling out mostly personal info and on the back your classes) and the 2nd page about your family background?

    thanks
