Chankovsky

anybody in a situation where you feel like the chances of you getting into your top choice is slipping away. But the hard part is that you can't do anything about it.

If you don't get into your top choice, this is not tantamount to your life slipping through your fingers.

C'mon...don't be too sad.

Revolution #9

Why are you always so depressed over menial things? I think you should take a trip to Africa (or Panama, or Nepal, or ...) and see how tough life is in other parts of the world. I promise you that your little concerns will seem a little less important when you see entire villages that are struggling to eat. You could really use some perspective :thumbdown:

You seem depressed (no not sad, the medical condition). You still got into medical school in the U.S. and that is a hard thing to do. You will still be a doctor no matter what school you go to.

The time to do something about it has passed. I mean I suppose you could write a letter of intent, but you've already gotten your grades, taken the MCAT, submitted your AMCAS and gotten in at a school. Now you can start over in medical school and kick butt so that you can get the residency you want. Be happy! You made it. :thumbup:

No, listen to the haters. You're a goofball. When you get pancreatic cancer, then life is slipping through your fingers. When your wife divorces you after she finds you looking at animal porn in the basement with her panties around your ankles, then life is slipping through your fingers. When you don't get into your top choice of medical school and you say life is slipping through your fingers, you need some haters.

Look, I understand that not getting into your top choice is very saddening and hugely disappointing. BUT, it is NOT "life slipping away." The OP has already gotten into medical school, and they're going to be just fine! We should be grateful to even be in a position to attend medical school!

That's very true. However, sometimes you can't change the way someone else feels about the situation. If the OP is bummed then he/she is bummed. You don't have to rain on the pity parade- let the OP have time to vent. Just my thought- no attack intended. Good luck to all of you and the haters :laugh:

You guys are all new to SDN, right ? I'm surprised nobody knows of the legendary Chankovsky... I guess I'll leave that poor soul alone.

i just read the first and last pages of the threads that Chankovsky had started... wow. just wow.

i especially like his "is ebay good", and "how deep should i prepare for the mcat?" threads.

what a unique sense of humor, definitely chuckle-worthy.

if you havent applied yet, i think that feeling is normal for when you start the process; if you have applied, turn your feelings into passion for the subject you will be studying so you can do really well on your boards and get into the residency of your choice; that's what is important after all. Keep your head up :thumbup:

I don't really think there is any reason for him to keep his head up. Come on, seriously, this is good preparation for being a physician, where you're going to have to break bad news all the time. When somebody has an inoperable brain tumor, you need to be upfront and honest about it. "I'm sorry, you have six months to live." It's in the job description. So let's knock off the pats-on-the-back for the loser, okay? Now is the time to spell it out, give it straight, be a man. It's over. Your hopes, your dreams: over. I'M SORRY. I'm sorry, okay? Look, you can still have some quality of life. We'll try to make you comfortable. But holding your breath for a dream... well, it's not healthy. It's over.
