    To all MD's-to-be that have not had the most encouraging application season, hang in there. If you're like me, you live for the mail everyday. Not many people in my life understand how draining this process is so I just thought I'd send out a "keep your chin up" to my fellow nail biters.

    The school I went to (undergrad) has a teaching hospital and a med school.....and I live a block away from both. Don't you sometimes wish you could just wear the white coat this Fall? Well....not to wallow in self pity, maybe next Fall during the White Coat ceremony in Orientation. ANyway...good luck to u all once again ! [​IMG]

    I can now understand why some people only give this one shot! It is so emotionally and financially draining! I consider myself quite lucky that I've gotten this far (4 interviews...still haven't heard from 3 schools...no rejections) but now that I'm even closer, the pressure is even greater! I'm SOOOO paranoid that I'm going to get wailtisted at ALL the schools and then NOT get into ANY of them...and because I'm waitlisted, I "could" get accepted anytime between now and AUGUST. Part of me says "just wait, it'll work out" the other half says "better start preparing to do it over". I'm hesitant to start applying all over (and spending more money I DON'T have) because I MIGHT JUST GET ACCEPTED. On the other hand, I might not....and then where will I be? It's very stressful and confusing. Not to mention all the angst about finding someplace to live in a new town (in a very short amount of time) AND worrying about money (because my husband is probably going to have to leave the military in September to follow me) ETC. ETC.

    I just hope I find out something (ANYTHING) soon! Heck, I'd be happy with a rejection at this point...at least I'd know where I WON'T be going!! [​IMG]
