Being currently on the waitlist of my dream school, I can't do anything but wait, so in the meantime I decided to call up some schools that rejected me and ask for their reasons for doing so. Although I didn't feel bad about getting rejected by those particular schools, I was shocked by their complete lack of willingness to reveal the reasons for my rejection. The only school who gave me *a thread of hope* of eventually getting that information is UCLA, who told me to call back in June and ask again. But all other schools simply and adamantly refused to help me out. Has this happened to anyone else? p.s. This is not related to the topic, but I am extremely disappointed with Stanford Med School's lack of communication. The man in charge of my file always has an answering machine on (with a message saying that he'll get to the caller soon), but he never gets back to me, not even for the messages I left back in January. I heard from another person in the Admissions that he's always there in the office but just doesn't want to pick up the phone. What an awesome dude you are, Mr. V.
