Well I know how sometimes moral drops, and people just needs something to motivate them to keep going. So here goes: My research professor told me this a while back to serve the same purpose. He's pretty much seen it all. He's been an MD/PhD since 1978, so thats a long time relatively speaking. Anyway, he's been mentoring undergraduates during the time between then and now, so he's seen many things happen. He takes pride in saying that each and everyone of his students have acheived their goals at some point. This student that he speaks of applied to medical school FIVE TIMES. Each time he reapplied did drain him. By the time he got in on the fifth time, he was demoralized, and didn't know he wanted to go after all. But my professor told him to try it out for a year to see how it goes. Today, this student is now a professor of medicine at Harvard University. I guess the moral of the story is, its OK to be demoralized, but we have to remember what motivates us to take this path. Clearly this guy did have the motivation to become a doctor. Albeit he did waiver at the end, but he did acheive his goals and became a very successful person. I wish you reapplicants good luck, and hope you don't have to go through a long process like this guy, but if it comes down to it, i would hope you guys remember this story, and to stay on the path. Those that do hang in there, I think that strength and dedication alone could make you a great physician.
