Oh my excuses aren't sad or petty. I did research with 3 MDs who were on the ADCOM for their med school and they all offered to do a practice interview with me. All 3 said my reasons were legit and that if my GPA/MCAT were actually competitive for their school that my interview would not have cost me an acceptance. Perhaps they were just being nice, but I'll take it.
