    Depends on the school. Tell us what school you want to appeal and maybe we will know whether it is possible with that school.

    I don't get it. To whom would you be appealing?

    The only appeal I forsee, and this would be ****ty to do, is through a court-action based on unjust discrimination or something of that nature. There is only one committee at a school with the yays/nayers the same at every meeting (I believe). Appealing wouldn't do much. This is a subjective process. Simply "he didn't seem to fit" would disqualify you from getting in.

    I thought alwaysaangel successfully appealed a decision from UCI. I'm a bit too lazy to look up his/her MDApps to figure out exactly what happened.

    UCSF pretty openly declares that it accepts appeals pre-interview and pre-secondary.

    If you really want to appeal you can always get Denny Crane.
