So these type of schools would be like Boston, Rochester, Penn, UCSF, for example. Schools that just ask you for basic information and a check for the secondary. I'm gonna assume that the majority of them don't send secondaries to everyone who applies, meaning they've at least taken a look at your AMCAS. Does this mean whether you get an interview or not pretty much rides exclusively on the quality of your recommendations? Or am I completely off base... I ask b/c I got rejected from Rochester, which is making me question the nature of my reference letters. Of course each writer promised a positive letter, but now I'm wondering if some might have been "cookie cutter" letters.
