Can I find out why I did not get in?

Yes and no. By reviewing the information in For Re-Applicants most people can find out why. Attempting to detail explicitly “why” leads into treacherous waters, and we will not go there. A better question is “How can I improve my competitive standing in next year’s application cycle?”

I'm going to be in Shreveport a week from tomorrow, and I was wondering if I could drop by and go over my application with the Dean of Admissions while I'm there?

Yes and no.  If he is available, he is always glad to meet visitors and future applicants, but previewing and reviewing application materials he does not do.

I'd like to make an appointment with the Dean of Admissions to talk about my application, so he can get to know me a little better. I mean, I'd just like to find out if I'm even heading in the right direction. Can I do this?

No.  This question sends a message you probably would rather not send. If you have availed yourself of advice from this website, your pre-professional advisors, information available from AMCAS, the MSAR (the book “Medical School Admissions Requirements”) and numerous other sources, and do not know if you are heading in the right direction, then it is doubtful that such an appointment will meet your needs. He usually gets to know applicants quite well when they come to interview.

The Dean of Admissions told me that I should get a Masters degree to raise my grade point average. Well, I did and what do you mean that I am not going to even be interviewed?

Counseling sessions are just that. Advice and suggestions are just that, no more. Counseled applicants must realize that all one can hope for is guidance in identifying possible ways by which an applicant might improve his or her competitive standing in a future applicant pool.
One can think of many similar scenarios, but a true example was the person who was advised to get a Master’s degree in order to address a low gpa. He got his degree, was invited to interview, but then performed so poorly in the interview that he never made the Acceptable List. Note: Addressing one shortcoming does not negate any others. All available information is reviewed in making any decision. This is discussed in more detail in the section for Re-Applicants.

The Dean of Admissions told me I needed to raise my MCAT score, and I did. Why haven’t I been invited to interview?

See the answer to the previous question.
