UCR?UCLA program is bogus. I went throught the entire things, and they set up road bloocks and the administrative traps to weed out who they don't like. They should be investigated or at least more open about their policies concerning admissions to the medical school poretion. With a GPA of 7.7 (as I am a white male) but they did not see me fit, but did find others with GPAs aroung 3.5-3,6 fit to enter because they had "experienced trying situations". The only reason they look at "life circumstances" in their official "comprehensive review" of each candidate is becasue they are leagally not allowed to look at race as a factor. Out of 50 people, I and 15 other white males did not continue on to the medical portion, only one white male made it and he had a 4.0 (really and only one other girl had this grade). So don't be fooled, if you want to make it in here you should bet on getting a 4.0 if you are white, or if your not white go for it you'll get in with anything above a 3.65. I am just letting you know so you know what to expect.
