OP: you only need one...
You were told your MCAT was the reason you were rejected post-interview? That's definitely frustrating... do you think they might have meant that it was too low for someone who got your interview score? That would make a whole lot more sense. Interviews are extremely subjective there's no getting around that aspect.lol, I'm not even talking about that reason. Try "your mcat is too low". I'm all about self-improvement, but when the rejection is due to something clearly printed on my primary application, there's no reason to have me fly across the country.
I'm all for schools doing super thorough screening for interviews because it makes stuff like this more liable to be caught, and the costs of being rejected are lower especially when a portion (definitely not all) of interviews can boil down to who you're paired with, their disposition that particular day, and innate biases. It only gets more subjective with each additional layer of screening you pass and the costs become higher.
I thought interview + essays + LORs become more important post-interview? It seems like every school so far I've interviewed at say "if you've made it to this point in the process for us, we've already determined you're academically capable at our institution"...or is that not true?PM me. I'd rather not derail the thread, I have more experiences to share.
Actually I'll PM you.
gg. most of us have been sitting around since mid july banging our heads against the wallIt's been almost 4 weeks on my first batch of secondaries now! ;<
case is a hella good interview. you should be proud of that one.Seriously? Four weeks and you're worried? I've been complete at most of the 22 schools I applied to for two months now and I only have one II.
It's about fit. Usually the schools that interview you are schools that fit with your application. They won't interview you if they didn't think you were a good fit. So I'm not surprised that it's your top choice, and I think you'll knock it out of the park. : )Oh I am! It's my top choice so I'm really happy. But if it doesn't work out, I'm screwed.
Yeah, you're right, I definitely think Case is a great fit for me. I would be so happy to go there, if I got accepted here I'd probably accept the offer the second I could. Just paranoid that I won't get accepted and I'll be stuck reapplyingIt's about fit. Usually the schools that interview you are schools that fit with your application. They won't interview you if they didn't think you were a good fit. So I'm not surprised that it's your top choice, and I think you'll knock it out of the park. : )
