Hey guys, It is looking more bleak for me this year. Currently, out of 10 schools, I received 2 rejections. I have a lot of hurdles to overcome. I had no direction as an undergrad and because of it I graduated with a 2.59 Cumm GPA back in 1997 and a low science GPA. Since then, I have been living my life and have a position performing cancer research at a major hospital and becoming the laboratory manager. I have also completed, for the most part, a Masters in Biology degree. The only thing left is to defend my thesis. With missing my thesis grade, I have a 3.4999 Cumm GPA and a 3.78 science GPA. My MCAT scores were 24 in 1996 (minimal studying), 20 in 1997 (no studying) and recently a 22 with much studying and a full time job and a family and running out of time. When I did the AAMC practice tests I was finishing and scoring 28-30. When I spoke to my #1 choice, they told me that all they want me to do is raise the MCAT to 25 and above. I am planning on retaking in April so I am expecting the rejections. My question to you is, how did you guys deal with the rejections? How did you guys not allow the depression get to you? I am depressed right now and am trying to move on. How can I psyche myself back up for the next round while getting kicked in the stomach every now and then?
