Hello everyone. I applied this cycle and was accepted to a school that I am not sure if I will be mentally and emotionally happy attending. I was just wondering if anybody had this happen to them and what they decided to do. Also, if someone had this happen to them and reapplied, how did it go? I am basically just trying to form a big pros and cons list. Thanks!
The first question always is: why did you apply there?
This happened to me - I was only accepted to one school and I wasn't thrilled about the idea of attending it, mostly due to distance and cost of attending. I considered reapplying but ultimately ended up taking the acceptance and going through with it.
For me, the decision came down to the fact that my application wasn't particularly competitive. Even with a competitive application there is NO guarantee that you will get another acceptance, either at another school or at this same school. Also, you're losing out on a year of doctor income which is significant if you're going into practice after graduation. I'm not a big risk taker, so I took the acceptance I was guaranteed instead of hoping I would get another one.
