Automatic rejection by admissions algorithm?
When thousands apply to a school, surely the committee does not go through all of them...right? Do they use a computer algorithm that takes MCATs and GPAs to eliminate lower score applicants automatically? Only once they get through this "algorithm" can they be evaluated by human admission committees... right? (Source: Student Doctor Network)

Any recommendations for intuitive/conceptual Physics videos?
I went through most KA videos once already but felt they focused more on the analytical side and found myself struggling with the conceptual side of things. Was wondering if anyone could recommend any videos for me to check out. Im specifically having trouble with electricity and optics. Thanks! (Source: Student Doctor Network)

Where to go from here...?
Hello guys, So I'm a reapplicant this cycle. Long story short, I applied two years ago with a mediocre undergrad GPA and a low MCAT (498). I obviously did not receive any luck. Last year, I went and did a graduate level postbacc program and finished the program with a GPA of 3.71. I also improved my MCAT score to 506 (126/124/129/127).

CA Reapplicant - Reapply this year or next year?
Hello all, I applied this past cycle, and unfortunately, as this cycle comes to a close, I have not been able to get any interview invites. At the moment, I'm pretty uncertain on what would be the best course of action moving forward, as I'm not too certain what the main issue in my application is/[are]. I am happy with MCAT score, and my GPA isn't quite where I wanted it to be, but I primarily aimed for schools with similar GPA stats (along with some reaches). I think that research may be...
