      This is my third year applying for schools, and I've gotten much farther than I ever have! I applied to as many schools as I could afford. In my time off, I've taken an online medical terminology course and continued to get as many experience hours as possible. I've been working as an aide 2 days a week since May. Acceptance/Denial season can be rough, but remember to keep at it! Persistence and hard work do pay off, eventually :) Good Luck All!
