    U. Virginia accepted me this week! I could hardly believe it. I got the letter in the mail a week after my interview. Time to drink...

    Excellent job, congrats. However, as a word of advice, make sure you work your ass off in med school. Not to say that the application process is fair or that it guages how well you will do, but you didn't make it four times in a row, so there may be some reason why med schools were turned off. Study early, study hard, and do well in everything, don't let up. Show them that underdogs can do just as well, and they'll let more people who didn't make it the first time in. Good luck. Congrats again.

    Congratulations to you! I'm surprised you didn't get in the first time round (especially with a 3.6 and 33).

    Go and out and celebrate... you've definitely earned it!

    Dude, the op has a 3.6 and a 33; he can't be that dumb. Don't assume that school is going to be harder for him than it is for anyone else... what if he got rejected for other reasons like being a freak who doesn't interview well, or having some weird body fungus or something? Maybe he got rejected because all he wears is pastel plaid clothing with popped collars. You don't know, so don't assume.

    Yea.. I had a 3.73 and a 28 the first time I applied. I also didn't have all of those EC's... so I got my MCAT up, and applied the 2nd time just as I was barely getting some health care experience, and didn't apply to many schools (bc I took the August MCAT). Now, my resume is finally where it should've been the 1st time I applied... I was just too immature and short-sighted to know. Thanks to all for the words of encouragement.

    Congrats on the acceptance! Hard work does pay off, and I must say, impressive MCAT this time around!

    I also didn't get in last year, but I am this year! I in no way had to do another year on top of that, like you did.. so congrats and best of luck!
