yah not really a path i would recommend to anyone On the flip side, I really matured over the whole process. I always had the brain power to get in, but I may have not always had the right attitude. When i start school, I am going to be a man on a mission! (though not a 'gunner')
good to hear that people are getting in being reapplicants ! i am a current reapplicant but i am kind of thinking i might have to do another round (sigh). i've heard some negative things about being a third time applicant that totally freaked me out but it's good to hear some positive things ! congrats guys !
Hey Nellia, hang in there fellow uic-thread buddy! I hope you haven't given up hope on uic yet. I'm still rooting for you. Have hope!
to the reapplicants, I'm just curious, why didn't you look into other alternatives like Caribbean schools or schools abroad ie Australian schools?
also did you encounter some family resistance from parents etc, about reapplying to american schools vs applying to Caribbean schools where you may have had a better chance of acceptance?
Same reason I never applied DO, in addition to being too "proud." I wanted to be an MD from an American school, so.. I stuck with it.I def could have been accepted to a carib school, but the residency placement and attrition rates from these schools are down right scary. Soooo glad I never considered going to a carib.
Congrats to successful reapplicants.
My sister is reapplying for the fifth time now. Hopefully she will get in this time.
