Hi, I'm a physician in practice at Davis, CA. I grew up in Martinez, but didn't take a direct path to med school. I went to Cal State Hayward, and got a degree in Spanish, then moved to Reno, where I returned to college and got a premed degree after I figured out what to do. I then applied to medical school, got rejected twice, then accepted at the last minute by University of Nevada, Reno. Davis wouldn't consider me at the time, because my grades were not 4.0, is what I was told. I ended up doing residency in OB/GYN, in Milwaukee, WI, then returning to private practice in Davis. I eventually became a staff gynecologist at Student Health as a part time volunteer at UCDavis! I am now in private practice in Sacramento and still live in Davis. It's a very interesting town, but the med school is riding on its reputation, and has difficulty providing enough clinical experiences for its students due to the HMO density in Northern California. I guess I'm sending this to you to recommend you don't limit your choices of schools to only one!
