there are people who get into med school with exceptionally below-average stat, but i am sure that they have other area on their app that level up for them.

i am curious about what was in the first girl's app that made her stand out? and when she applied, how hopeful was she seeing herself getting accepted? what did her hope base on?

as to the second girl who got 35 mcat and decent gpa... what is so special about her?

if i'm not mistaken, that's not too far below the average for the las vegas school. if 9 9 9 is the average, then plenty of people with 10 10 10 and 8 8 8 are getting in.

Just my 2.5 cents.
Everyone? Or everyone who's applying MSTP?

in the letter I am reading from

"After your interview date is confirmed, you will receive a list of options for accommodations during your visit. One night's lodging will be provided free of charge.

Sincerely yours,
YadaYadaYada"

This is for the MD program. I have no idea about MD/PhD.

Regards.

Nice, I always thought the MSTP's were the only ones to get free lodging for interviews.

WashU treats their MSTP interviewees like kings... I dont think WashU pays for hotel for regular MD applicants, but they will host you for free at Olin Hall (their dorm)

As for the MSTP group, they get to stay in a lush 4 star hotel with a freakin movie theatre in the lobby, food in the fridge, 2 bedroom suite with 3 TVs and a nice living room area. The room rate is over $200 a night.

They also take you out to fancy dinners that cost at least $30 per person.
