    Do you really think that med schools think that much more better about you if apply for a second time as opposed to your first application? I've been told that this sheds good light on you because, of course, you're showing your commitment to the profession. I am one if you were wondering....

    Well, I think you do get some points for dedication and persistance, but I also think they look for some improvement in your application. Good luck! :)

    Yes, I am applying at the U of A for the second time. I attended the reapplication seminary they held last year, and that is what they made it sound like. I am actually living in Phoenix right now, I graduated from the U of A last year.
