My friend's friend was an international student at Harvard. She graduated last year and applied for 26 medical schools. She got only 5 interviews. Surprisingly, she got rejected from all of them post-interview. She decided to forget about medicine and now she goes to grad school. What might have caused these rejections? I don't know about her specific stats. But her GPA is likely to be decent because I heard that she made straight-A's in several semesters. She also said that she led an antisocial college life where she only lived in lecture hall and dorm (Perhaps this was what caused her downfall?) But she said all of her 5 interviews went great. But again I don't know the specifics yet. Just assuming that GPA, MCAT and ECs were decent, does something like this happen often for non-US or international applicants? How common is this? I'm scared as a non-US (Canadian) student.
