ECs: Thought they were good but guess not

OOP UG

 

With the amount of rejections sent out after the glitch, it seems like it could be a system problem where everyone got rejected. I think it happened a few years ago too.

Two-year GPA: 3.85

MCAT: PS12/BS11/V10

ECs: Extensive research with one publication, health-related volunteering, lots of leadership in various university societies and community-related committees, sports, music. I felt my ECs were quite strong, perhaps the strongest part of my application.

I don't know why I was rejected, pretty bummed out. Do we get to see our stats and compare them to the rest of the applicants by any chance?
