Angry why do they regret? ...they dont have to!

hi,
how fast they are in regretting (the residency programs),till now 3 programs have sent sorry messages, it is not even Oct 1st, is that normal or my application is that bad they don't even wanna review it?

Don't let emotions get the best of your judgement. You never know when something might come back to bite you on the rear end. Rejections are a part of this dance; just go with the flow.

Good call. That ought to teach them a lesson. Who knows, they might even lose some sleep over it and reconsider previously rejected applications. And once they change their mind about the rejection they sent you, I hope you find it in your heart to revoke your rejection you sent them and give them another chance.

its not about you, its more about statistics your chances as well as mine range between 20 -40% considering a great app so knowing that makes these rejections understandable

depends on program and criteria of reviewing apps, some use formulas and if your app is outside the formula then its rejected right away, others use committees of residents to review and that takes longer.

Haha
I know right. But when they say we are so sorry we can't interview all wonderful candidates.
I'm like F U. Just tell me straight: we don't want you. We don't like your scores. Anything. No need to be political about it.
