I've heard of people getting rejected from all their med school choices, but usually it's because they didn't receive all 4 interview invitations, so their chances are significantly reduced.

Relatively few people get 4 interviews, so I imagine it would be even rarer for someone to then get rejected from every single one after interview. It suggests a very strong paper application but something must have gone terribly wrong in the interview.

Relatively unusual, but i'm sure it happens to a few hundred each year based on the numbers.

It must happen to a few but I would think that four post interview rejections is a good sign that you are doing something wrong at interview.

I think all of you have gotten the wrong end of the stick. I haven't had 4 post interview rejections. I'm simply in that limbo phase of waiting for a decision and i think i was getting a little worried lol

I have a friend who got four post-interview rejections last year. He's actually very social and speaks well, but he said that his interviews all went awfully. He then spent his gap year practicing interview technique and got an offer (four interviews again). If you do get four interview rejections — it's probably due to nerves I think, although yes it is very rare.
