3.86/34 is not that impressive for such a top Med. School. I bet it is the reason, as the name of UG is not the top criteria in general. My D. had a bit higher in both and tons of ECs and is a good at interviews is they only give her a chance. Well, she did not get invited to interview at school lower ranked than Emory, not a peep from them. While it does not answer your question directly, it is another proof that all is the matter is the stats should amtch to Med. School and 3.86/34 was considered below thier radar as well as my D's stats were considered below the radar of school that did not invite her. I am sure that if she only had a chance to be at interview, she would have won them over. But the fact is, they do not invite below certain mark, period, their own or not might make a slight diff., but not much.
