Thanks guys. I'm sure it wasn't because you were less qualified than me, it's probably just so competitive that it was less about how good your essay/GPA was but more about how lucky you got when the selection committee met. I think based on what you've all said, this program seems to be more competitive than actually getting an interview at the school so hopefully that will encourage you to apply. Also I don't know where you are all from but I live pretty close to Des Moines so if region played any part of the selection process, it definitely helped me.
Let's just get those big MCAT scores and we'll all be golden once applications and interviews start up in nearly [eek!] two months.
