This is quite possibly the worst day of my life (academically speaking). To know that all the hard work that I've put in for the past 4 years is all for nothing. There is no way that I will ever be able to do what I thought I was meant to do, at least not now. I caved and got my MCAT scores online. I got a 17M (6V, 5P, 6 B)....goes well with my SAT's and my ACT's but it isn't even close to my academic record. It is so depressing that schools will take a day of testing over 4 years of hard work. I am at a loss. I already submitted amcas and filed all my secondaries....all the schools were waiting on were my scores, and now they have them. Is there a light at the end of this tunnel? Well...I have an interview with my state school. And by the looks of these scores they interview everybody. My question is...if I kick a#@ at my interview how likely are they to keep me if my MCAT is that low? God, I didn't even get a 20. I know I did bad but I had no idea I did that bad. And the sad thing about it is...the rest of my application is FANTASTIC. Great LOR's, tons of diverse volunteer work dispite being a college athlete, a 3.7 GPA (3.57 science) and a part time job. I know that MCAT and GPA aren't everything the adcoms look at but really...a 17? That is rejection material and I just have to face it. I really had some hope...but not anymore. I don't even know how to tell my family or my fiance. They all believed in me so much. I feel like I let them down. My fiance has put off going back to school to work so that I can graduate and go to med school. How can I tell him that all of his hard work and sacrifice has come to this? I can't afford to go through this process again anytime soon. I just don't know what to do. Will any school look past those scores and give me a chance?? Is it possible that they will compare my past performance on similar tests? Don't be afraid to be harsh...nothing could be worse than the amount of money I had to spend during this process, and the heartache that I felt when I saw the results. I just needed to vent.
