I am turning 31 this summer. I transferred to UCLA and sort of screwed up after transfer because i was undergoing depression being home sick. My grades for 2-3 years were C's and few F's due to lapse of courses. My stress reacted on my thyroid causing overactivity which I explained in my PS. Then I finally bounced back. I finished up with A's and B's. Then I proceeded to to take about year of post bacc at UCLA extension and managed a 4.0 in all science courses. Then my MCAT that I took after applying which was a total mistake. I took and failed at 473. I think it was test anxiety. So this totally ruined my post back and hard work. Medical school is a definite goal of mine and I don't want to back down. But at this point i don't know what to do. I was working in doctor's office who wrote me a great letter last year when I applied. But I haven't done anything since corona started and I was out of work. I don't know what my course of action can be at this point. Retake MCAT and reapply?
