    Rejected from med schools 2 years ago. What are my chances now?

    Hi everyone. As the title says, I applied to medical school during college back in 2019-2020 and was not accepted. For starts, I truly did not know what I was doing then... I went to a large (but academically well-respected) university, and the pre-health advisors were awful. But I've lived and...

    Reapplicant advice/school list assistance

    Hello all. I've used SDN for years, but after an unsuccessful app cycle this year, I've decided to finally ask for some assistance. I only applied to a few schools last cycle, but I thought I would just give it a shot since I had AAMC Fee Assistance. In hindsight, I shouldn't have applied last...

Moreover, they can only see your previous application if they saved it in their database. However, med schools to which you are applying for the first time will...
