I would first like to thank whoever reads and responds to this post for their time and advice because I am honestly at a loss right now. Before I share the circumstance I am currently in, I'll share some background information about me. I am a recent grad from a great University and graduated with a 3.89 GPA and I also graduated in the very top of my class in High School. I have always put school first throughout my entire life and have been dedicated to fulfilling my dream of becoming a Doctor one day. I have always been the type of person who didn't go out or didn't spend time with friends because I had a test a week away that I had to study for. Throughout my college career, I was always told that I would definitely get into medical school because of my good grades. However, it wasn't until I took the MCAT for the first time that everything went downhill for me. The first time I took it, I had studied for three months and received a 496. I was shattered. Disappointed. Devastated. But, I didn't want to give up. I took the exam again and made a 500. I had applied with these two scores and did not get any interview invitations. I took the exam one more time thinking that this was the one, I was finally going to conquer this exam that has caused me so much stress and pain in my life. I opened up the score report and saw a 497 staring at my face. I was at a loss of words. I finally found a job that I felt I was going to be happy with during my gap year and everything else was slowly falling into place. But this score completely blindsided me. Not only was I scoring around 505's on my practice exams, I had finally received the confidence that I needed to feel as though I conquered the MCAT. But now, I am at at a complete loss. I had learned how to take the exam I have never told anyone my scores because of how embarrassed I am of them and everyone is always expecting such high results from me. I have never been one to give up on my dreams but at this point in my life, I really do not know what to do. I would have never thought I would end up in this situation but the reality is that I am and I just need some advice on what to do right now. Writing a post like this and sharing everything with the community is something I never thought I would find the courage to do but I am completely crushed and I wanted to hear people's opinions regarding this situation.
