Just as some examples of how \"chance\" or \"luck\" factor into the med school game...
I got an interview offer to UC San Francisco (as an out of state applicant), but rejected pre-interview from Stanford, while many people who applied to both schools had the reverse situation.
I got an immediate acceptance to an MD school (OHSU) but waitlisted a DO school (PNWU).
In short: Some schools will like you, some schools won\'t. Don\'t let anyone make you think you\'re a worse applicant because you didn\'t get accepted to ____________ but they did. They might not have gotten accepted to the school where you applied. Just be happy where you get accepted!
