I got a rejection email from Mt. Sinai today and I am just wondering if they mean what they said about "research accomplishments and strong recommendations" or it's just an email they send to everyone who get rejected: "Three members of the MD/PhD Admissions Committee have reviewed your application to our dual degree training program. Your research accomplishments and strong recommendations attest to your commitment to research. However, given our extremely competitive pool of applicants this year, we will be unable to offer you admission.... However, should you remain committed to dual degree graduate training, we also invite you to apply for an alternative pathway at Mount Sinai: the "PhD-to-MD/PhD" track."
