I have finally found a topic that I feel comfortable discussing but have concerns that it may be viewed as risky. I am considering writing about my struggle with overcoming burnout towards the end of college and specifically addressing: why it happened, what I did to recover from it, and what I learned from the experience (how I will ensure it never happens again). I think this is a good topic to write about as burnout is a prevalent issue throughout medicine (for medical students, residents, and physicians) and this experience has allowed me to significantly grow and better understand myself as a person in the last yrar; however, my fear is that Adcoms will view this as me not understanding my limits and questioning whether I have truly learned from my mistake. I want to note that I am not doing this to cover up for bad grades, as my grades were the same during that term as the rest of the terms. I would appreciate feedback from the SDN community, especially the Adcoms such as @Goro, @LizzyM @gyngyn @Catalystik and others.
