    GRRRR I recieved 2 rejections in a week, both from VA schools (EVMS and MCV/VCU). They DON'T even have my August scores yet!I called MCV and she couldn't give me a clear answer as to why. Perhaps it is because I am an out of state resident (CALI)...is anyone else having the problem of being rejected when your MCAT scores isn't in yet?

    I feel your pain. I got rejected from one school thus far, that school being ETSU. They didn't even have my August MCAT scores, and they rejected me. Someone told me this when I posted that news: If the school isn't going to give you the time of day, then they're not worth YOUR time. VCU put me on hold (ie. until August MCAT scores are received). Yet, I have other friends who are in the same situation as you. They were rejected w/out their new MCAT scores. Sometimes, it's hard to explain why they do what they do...

    Best of luck to you w/ the rest of your schools.

    :)

    Hi,

    Sorry about the rejection. I don't think that your residency comes into play though. I got VCU's secondary invite, and I am from Cali too. Maybe you should talk to somone there. Everytime I've called, I've gotten a really nice person. Try calling..

    Good Luck :)
