    So I have a friend who got a 3.8 gpa and a 35 MCAT. He is from Fl and applied to every Fl school. He applied to 12 schools, and didn't get a SINGLE interview, although he got on the wait list for 4. He didn't do any EC's but it still seems pretty crazy how he didn't even get an interview anywhere...

    I've heard this happen to a bunch of people, why do you think this happened?

    He had 0 EC's? That's probably why.

    BTW, how could he have been waitlisted with no interviews?

    pff, this guy is unbelievably successful -- 4 WLs without any interviews! i can't even imagine how many waitlists he will get after he adds on a few ECs.

    Its simple, every school in the USA has enough applicants with decent stats to fill their class and the ones that do are the ones who show something more than just numbers.

    wait list with no interview? haha
    right right

    Numbers don't make doctors. People make doctors.
    Tell your "friend" to work on his EC's and try again next year.

    Getting great grades is a cakewalk if that is all you have on your plate.

    Doing your EC's while in school is part of showing you can handle a heavy workload.

    No Ec's whatsoever? I thought every colleg student in the US has done SOME form of an EC. Serisously man, that's just pathetic.

    Chuck Norris doesn't get waitlisted, he's accepted without submitting without having to even submit an AMCAS.
