THIS POST FOR THOSE APPLYING TO CALI SCHOOLS. LIST AUGUST/ APRIL MCAT TAKER
CALI SCHOLS APPLIED TO
CALI SCHOOLS REJECT and at what point
CALI SCHOOLS INTERVIEWS
CALI SCHOOLS ACCEPT

This is just to encourage californians cos we seem to have been forgotten by UCla, ucsd, ucsf, stanford and UCI. USC seems to be the only one acknowledging our existence.
Good luck y'a;ll

-Applied to all cali schools and was complete at all by end of august.
-Rejected by Stanford about a month ago
-Forgotten by UCSD, UCLA, (didn't get secondaries from either ==> rejection?) USC, UCDavis, Loma Linda (haven't heard anything post-sec)
-Interviewed at UCSF and will interview at UCI
-Accepted: None.

and unforunately, usc hasn't acknowledged my existence since July...lol

Temmie you asked but didn't offer your own personal experiences with the Cali schools.

UCD still waiting secondary, complete 7/25
UCSF complete 8/15, rejected last week
UCLA complete early August, secondary request received today
UCI complete secondary 8/20, on hold for an interview
UCSD called and they told me that I hadn't been granted a secondary, but that I wasn't rejected either and they would review my application for a secondary again at some point - wtf?!?!
Stanford complete september sometime, still no word

USC interview invite - at least I may get into one CA school

UCI has had my complete app since late August, and it is still "Pending Review". UCD and UCSD are both still deciding on whether or not to give me a secondary (haha). I didn't bother to apply to UCLA or UCSF this year. Also USC, Loma Linda and OHSU have said nothing. Overall, things are looking pretty bleak for a triumphant return to the West Coast. :(

I am going to fill it out. It says that they send secondaries on their webpage until the end of december so I guess that means they are still going out. Most of the essay topics that UCLA asks I have already addressed on other secondaries, so filling it out is nothing more than maybe a few hours and 60 dollars. I figure it can't hurt.

I'll give my input...

UCSD: Interview 11/1
UCI: Interview 12/5
UCSF: Interview 11/29
UCD: Complete 9/20 but no word since :confused:
UCLA: Received secondary on 11/1 will submit this weekend.

I'm not sure where UCD is. I thought I would get an interview there and I never thought I would get a UCSF interview. This process is strange!

UCI: app complete post-MCAT; awaiting response
UCLA: app complete post-MCAT; awaiting response)
USC: app complete post-MCAT; interview! on 1/4
UCSF: no secondary yet :(
UCSD: app complete post-MCAT; awaiting response
UCD: app complete post-MCAT; awaiting response
Loma Linda: did not apply
Stanford: complete post-MCAT; awaiting response

So my secondaries are all in at the UCs that sent them to me. There were all received and finished about the same time, the last week of October. No word from any of them. I do have an interview at USC which is exciting. But some love from UCSF would be ideal (first choice)

It was nothing against the school, but once I got accepted to San Diego, I withdrew b/c it was my top choice in California and I didn't want to take up any interview spots.
