Monday, March 23, 2009
On Thursday, March 5th the Office of Admissions interviewed the last group of applicants for the fall 2009 entering class. Applicant interviews were conducted every Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday from September 25, 2008 until March 5, 2009 (excluding campus holidays). In all, over 500 amazing applicants visited our campus to participate in the interview process. Each interview day started with a welcome by Dr. David Wofsy, Associate Dean for Admissions, and was followed by a brief Financial Aid session. Applicants were then given an opportunity to attend a first or second year class, followed by lunch with an advanced student and a campus tour led by a first year student. Interviews with admissions committee members were usually in the afternoon from 1:00 – 5:00 pm. Interview days are not only an effective way for us to learn more about the applicants but also for the applicants to learn more about UCSF!
