Here’s my 2-minute answer to the question I hear every application season:
“I was rejected by every single medical school I applied to. What can I change?”
There’s a simple 2-step process that rejected med school applicants need to follow:
- Assess what went wrong,
- Fix it!
What exactly was your application weakness?
Did you apply too late? Then this year, apply as soon as AMCAS opens.
Was your MCAT too low for the schools you applied to? If so, apply to schools with lower average MCAT scores or retake your MCAT and score higher so that your target schools will notice you.
Were your grades too low? Maybe you need to take some extra courses or complete a full postbac program (and do well!).
Did you blow your interviews? Maybe you need some interview coaching for next time.
