Re: Seek advice after fail this year. Thank you.
Sorry to hear that. This is a tough process.
First, you may actually have a chance at those lower ranked schools. I think you should contact them and ask about an update. The fact that you interviewed at higher schools implies that your package looks decent. This could actually deter some lower ranked programs. If you express interest there is a chance that you will get an interview there. I wouldn't give up on this season until you are rejected from every school.
Second, this is just a guess, but you may benefit from working on your English skills over the next year. Your writing here is fine, so I am only basing this on the fact that you had 3 interviews and were rejected from all of them. That rate is a little high and could be explained by poor spoken English.
A full profile would allow for better feedback on your next steps.
