Summary of Experience:
SR: 6/30/11, SS: 6/30/11, R: 3/9/12
After the last cycle I applied I spoke with the dean of admissions on the phone in order to determine weaknesses in my application. After addressing every single one (and doing it pretty well if I do say so) I was again rejected without much consideration. This is such a crazy ridiculous process in many ways.
Summary of Experience:
SR: 7/5/11, SS: 7/5/11, Pooled in early August I think, R: 3/9/11
Interviewed here the first time I applied and have since raised my GPA with difficult upper division science classes, significantly raised my MCAT, and added research and volunteering (with extensive hours). A little sad that as a much stronger applicant they liked me less.
