The way i got around this was two-fold.
I went through other channels to talk to some Adcom members to explain my situation before reapplying. They made me write an official letter expalining everything in detail and what steps i have taken to correct things.
2. My former dean made some calls on my behalf to confirm my story and to say that she supported my application to the new school.
Even with this, the only school that gave me a second shot was affilated with my college and i personally knew attendings there who kinda annoyed the heck out of people to give me a shot.
Thanks for the story. Nice to hear things worked out for you. If there's anyone's advice palmpalm should heed, it's yours.
