Didn’t make it in this year. I will try again next year. Then if I don’t get in I’ll give up on this goal. 4 weeks ago

There’s only one school that I have a shot at. Interviewed in September, but I could just be strung along for what’s known as a silent rejection.

this is the true bane of my existence. I am really close to giving it up forever. 2 months ago
I heard back from my first med school! I’m on the first tier waitlist, so I can’t say this for sure yet… 3 months ago
So this time around I got to the interview stage which is a big deal. Just had two interviews one day after another, and don’t have my third until march, by which time I should have heard something about the other two. Having been there I love both places even more than I did before. I’m trying not to get my hopes up, because I loved them so much I know I would be crushed for a bit. Just have to forget about it and wait and see for a while. 4 months ago
Two confirmed interviews, both in January. Thats only a bit over two weeks! Very nervous. I may get another interview since I passed their requirements, but they haven’t decided yet. Just going to concentrate on these two so far. I really hope I get in. 4 months ago
At least one, and another one that looks likely I’ll get an interview. Haven’t heard from the last two universities get.
My interview is in a month! I’m hopping drastically between excited and terrified (though mostly seem to be on the terrified side of things). 5 months ago
and … silence
but I might get a Nature and pnas paper. hopefully that will be the icing on the cake.

How I did it: It was about 3 years from the time I started thinking about going into healthcare to getting in. For almost the whole time, I was unsure about whether I should be a doctor, nurse, PA, or something else. I took medical school pre-requisites and volunteered, but I still wasn't sure. I even took all of the pre-requisites for nursing school, but after 2-1/2 years of vacillating, I finally decided that medicine was a better fit for me and I needed to at least give it a try. So I signed up for the MCAT, took it, applied, and 6 months later, I was accepted. Read how I did it… 6 months ago
Now that all the formailities and whatnot are done, it’s down to the wire… classes are brutal.
Haha, coming out of undergrad as an engineer, I thought this would be a piece of cake too, but nooooo!
This is such a huge time commitment! Cramming from the first day on :O this is like unheard of in my academic past.
Anyway, that’s my update on this so far. 9 months ago
I had applied to about 6 different med schools three years ago and was rejected by every one of them. I have to say that I’m not surprised though, because of where I live and because of my lack of undergrad volunteer experience. I still got a fantastic mark on my MCATs, my grades were decent but I was missing that thing that put me above 10 000 other applicants. It was a spark that I was missing – I had lost it with my life slowly crumbling around me, and I lost my goals due to depression. Now I’m starting to get that spark back. It may take me a few more years, and I may do naturopathy instead of allopathic medicine, but I am confident that some day medicine and I will meet again. 11 months ago
