Summary of Experience:
Applying for MD/PhD program!!
Hi Deborah, Thanks for your time reviewing the application. I just received the letter of regret for 2011 Application Cycle. I have been following this post and I remember seeing a comment that today’s regret goes out to those who did not pass the academic screening.
For the purpose of my question, my wGPA was 3.78. And I received 7 on one section on the MCAT (other sections were above MCAT minimum). So, I wrote a letter asking for special consideration as suggested on the Website. I guess it did not help. Does this mean my application file did not receive full-file review because of my score in MCAT?

Hello P. Today’s refusals were for a variety of applicants including many that went through full review and did not do well enough to be invited to interview: “This will include individuals who did not meet our minimum academic requirements, as well as a large set that did not make it to full review and another set that did go to full review but did not score well enough to be considered for interview.” We do not provide feedback on unsuccessful applications.
