Anyone else think this too? I feel like I've really worked hard during college (and even in high school) in order to succeed and have a good GPA. I overloaded every semester with many academic and science courses and after class, had my extracurriculars. MCAT score wasn't so great though and I had a terrible research experience where after a long time, I didn't get anything out of it. I think those are some of the things contributing to my terrible luck thus far this cycle, and I don't think I'm going to hold my breath anymore. I've just interviewed at some of the lower end schools on my list, and even then, I've been put on hold at 2 of them and rejected from 1. Of course, people say, you go to a med school to become a doctor, not to go to a prestigious school, but to me, that's much easier said than acceptable, just for myself. Argh. I don't want to get into Harvard or anything, but just getting all these no's or "maybe, let me mull over you for a little longer" even from the lower end of my wish list are really painful and makes me feel like all these years I've been just wasting my time. Argh, this is just a rant now. Now I just want to say, whatever: seriously plan my year off in order to improve MCAT score and other parts of my app other than my GPA, and re-apply next year.
