- Your GPA is amazing, and it is usually the hardest thing to correct if it was bad. Super competitive for all schools
- You have very unique and exceptional academic and medical based achievements and experiences, which are always amazing to show interest in medicine.
- Practicing for and re-writing the MCAT is the easiest part to redo of the medical application process.
- Talk about the human component of your experiences. Like when you were volunteering in the hospital and emergency, talk about the unique people moments you had. The difficult things you experiences and learned from, mistakes you saw happen or had happen to you, how to learned and grew personally... how you helped someone else (and how it will all apply to your career in medicine). I've noticed through my ABS for Western and the interview, that they are more and more wanting to see that intrapersonal element to your experiences and not just the experience itself.
For example: If you have taught kids how to play the piano, especially those from traditionally lower SES background (who may not be able to afford regular lessons), and have been there with them through the ups and downs of the learning process, you can frame that personal learning experience in terms of medicine, and strengthen your application writeups and interviews. These type of mentorship roles are really great for your own learning, and appreciating how to respect and work with people that depend on your knowledge (i.e patient and doc).
- You may also have difficulties with reading and writing as people mentioned before. I'd recommend regularly reading news and academic (not necessarily science) articles. Read stuff you are not regularly interested in, and try to understand why they wrote what they did, and what they are trying to convince you of.
- I would also suggest getting someone you trust, or an editor to review your write-ups for grammar, argument structure, and redundancy. I had a friend who was an English Honors, who read over my work and found mistakes I didn't know were a thing.
Overall, while it's difficult that you didn't get an interview and it's natural to feel like there may be no hope, I want to just assure you that you are in a great position to get into medicine. It will take a fair amount of personal reflection and growing in skills you may not be the strongest in right now, but you have a really good chance moving forward.
