Is it unwise to reapply to a school where you were rejected post-interview?

Will the admissions committee give you another chance or is that just a little flag that helps them toss your app in the trash after taking your application money?

As long as you have improved your application, it's definitely worth trying again. I have a couple of friends who got accepted to schools who rejected them post-II the cycle before. One retook the MCAT and jumped 7 points, the other added a ton of clinical experience.

I interviewed at my state MD school last cycle, hard reject post-interview. Went to their reapplicant workshop where they gave me advice and told me what to do in order to reapply. Applied again this cycle, accepted. Maybe you could reach out to admissions and see if they have advice or some sort of workshop
MCAT score only went up 1 point, GPA actually dropped.
