Hi Guys So I'm applying for admission to med school this cycle and things have not been going well. Initially, I was very excited with the interviews I received (UCSF, UCSD, WashU, SLU, Duke, Mt. Sinai, Vandy, and GWU), but as of yet, I don't have a single acceptance, only waitlists. My numbers aren't very impressive (3.5, 35Q), but my ECs are very strong and the reason why I believe I've been getting these great interviews. I don't know what to do. As of right now, I'm waiting on hearing back from SLU, WashU, and Duke. I'm expecting a WL from WashU because their numbers are insane, and Duke could go either way it seems. SLU, no idea. I know you all by now are thinking I must not be interviewing well, but on multiple occasions, interviewers have told me that I'd be a "good fit" for the school. While I understand that interviewers often don't have a direct say in decisions, but rather only speak for the applicant to the AdCom, I feel that these comments indicate that I'm not blowing the interview or really presenting myself negatively. At this point, all I can really do is send updates/letters of interest to schools and a LOIntent to my top choice. I was included as second author in a pretty big journal and had my PI send an additional blurb about me to schools, so hopefully this will turn some heads. Is there anything else I can do? Should I contact my interviewers if schools didn't explicitly say I shouldn't? I guess I'm not really asking any real question here just venting. I knew I wasn't the most competitive applicant, but I did apply very broadly. It just so happens that the majority of the schools that have decided to interview me are super competitive, for better or worse. My only guess is that my GPA is coming back to haunt me during the final decision meetings, but to that I say, why invite me to begin with!?!? I feel so disappointed with myself and embarrassed whenever anyone asks me, "Sooooooo? Heard anything?" I'm tired of answering this question. Good luck to you all who are applying right now and congrats to all those accepted. I'm certainly very envious of you right now.
