    Hello MD/PhDers...
    Sorry if this question has been answered already, I couldn't find an answer by searching--I was just wondering if any of you had any luck in 'questioning' a rejection letter for the MD/PhD interviews. Any stories of writing a letter/further elaboration on research activities that might not have been covered in the secondary... and then later being reconsidered for an interview? I know people have done this with 'holds'...just wondering if anyone had any thoughts on this.
    Thanks much--:)

    as you said - the asking whats up with the hold at ucsd was responded with an invite - don't know if they had anythign to do with eachother (doubtful i think - cause other people had the same situation without writing anything)

    its worth doing - i mean they can't do anyting to you. since the applicant pool is small enough that they actully do give each file consideration, they might be willing to take a look at it again - but it also means that they have spent some time with it already. pretyt much you can only gain by asking - i would.

    the only place i sent supplementary material to was stanford (my md/phd personal statement in addition to their short application) -- and that didn't quite work haha.

    take care though

    it doesn't help at all

    'nuff said

    (but, sometimes you have to do something even though you know it is impossible.)

    I am tempted, post-rejection, to sent a few supplemental materials in support of my application (kind of like I never saw the rejection letter-like it got lost in the mail.) But I just feel like that jilted lover that is begging the partner to reconsider. . . I don't wanna be that person :rolleyes:

    I am going through the five stages of grief with Yale-If you can't tell, I am currently in stage 3, bargaining.
