You don't know.
The 2009 rankings placed UCSF's School of Medicine fifth among all medical schools in the country in terms of quality of research training and primary care training. In addition, the school ranked among the top 10 in seven medical school specialty programs, including first in AIDS medicine, second in women's health, and third in internal medicine.

I wonder why ...

So much emphasis on top 10 in business schools. It's very strange. I don't know if it's the same for law schools or medical schools, either. I really don't think that a 3.3 cumulative and 3.75 major GPA is THAT horrible, but I have done some research and it seems that a 3.5 cum. is a minimum for the so-called top 10. I will look around at some second-tier schools and perhaps apply to a top 10 as a longshot.
