i got rejected from a medical school and so i would like to submit a letter of appeal.

background knowledge for this med sch and myself:-
1) I managed to get decent grades that was enough and i got shortlisted
2) had to submit a personal statement for the interview (included reasons why i wanna study Medicine, etc)
3) gone through 2 interviews and an essay test after being shortlisted

since i've already mentioned reasons why i wanna study medicine in my personal statement i have no idea what to write in my appeal letter.

please help!

I think you should reiterate why you should admitted into the program. i think you should mention your passion about being a medical dr. and how you volunteer your time (if you actually did that). Explain why your grades were just decent and not the best compared to other students and how you will work harder once you are admitted into the program.

well i feel that reiterating why i wanna get admitted into the programme (which is what my personal statement was) would be kind of totally copy-and-paste of what was actually in my personal statement =\ about my passion, again i have already mentioned it inside my personal statement too =x

regarding decent grades it will not help as, since i was already shortlisted for the interviews, it shows that my grades were sufficient to at least make myself worthy of a second chance to actually get enrolled in the medical school. once candidates are shortlisted, grades are no longer important; the interviews and essay test are.

thanks for your reply though! appreciate it!
