    Sorry for the weird title. Okay, so besides applying early, how can we tell a school that we would love to go to that school, so that we will not get screened out even before a secondary... My worries are that Mayo might reject pre-secondary, and I would love to go there...

    Write a hot and heavy love letter.

    Or something along those lines.

    If you're worried about being screened out pre-secondary, do you think you honestly have a shot at getting an interview (let alone an acceptance)? I don't think there is much you can pre-secondary, but post-secondary write a letter about how much you want to be at their school. Though most people save letters of intent/interest until after their interviews.

    Edit -- After looking at your MDApps profile, you shouldn't worry about being screened out pre-secondary.

    The thing is, they seem kind of random, and I heard people with higher stats than me have gotten screened pre sec, and I have really average stats...

    We have similar stats and I got to stick around, I think you got a good shot at it if you play your cards right

    *EDIT*

    your stats is average for california schools maybe, but I don't think it's that average outside of this state.

    I don't think Mayo really works like that. They get 3,000 applications for very few spots... they could fill their class with 41+ 3.9+ students, but they look for other things. Exploration of the medical field, leadership abilities, community service, and such.

    Honestly, anything we tell you on this particular question is PURE SPECULATION. You should call them and ask, it doesn't hurt to try.

    Exactly. Someone else out there gets it.
    Naw, I just like the small class size, use of the entire clinic, and so on...
