Like many others, I've had to wait an extra year to pursue my dream. At one of the medical schools I applied to I was kept on the waiting list until the first day of class and finally rejected. Last week I received notice that I was accepted into that medical school for next years class. Needless to say, my parents called me hysterical stating they had read the letter at least 5 times before calling me to be sure. Hard work does pay off. I was devastated when I didn't get in last year, but I picked my pride off the ground and talked to the schools to find out ways to improve my chances. They recommended I take and EMT-Basic course to get some experience and take a few more upper level classes (although I had already graduated) to expand my knowledge. Obviously they had faith in me and what I had done ( I was accepted w/out even a new set of interviews). So I just wanted to let everyone know that good things do happen for those who are patient and wait for our chance. GOOD LUCK TO ALL!
