I'll start making stupid polls in the pre-allopathic forums...
Maybe you could brush up on your English first.
What's wrong with the OP's English?
He meant Chyme saying "poles" instead of "polls"
Or maybe Chyme wants to erect large metal cylinders in Pre-allo, who knows?
wouldn't you be reapplying as you are working and/or volunteering? sorry, just not try to turn it into a two year lag....
Cylinders filled with chyme...
You're really gunning for 500 today Chyme
What do you mean...
To be honest, if anyone says that they will not reapply next year if they don't get in this year, then they should probably reconsider their choice of careers, don't you think? Just my thought, but maybe I'm wrong. I just look at it as a measure of dedication.
I've never seen you Chancellor semi-troll this much before. Are you simply filling the void left by E's departure or are you just wanting to see "500+ Posts" under your name to better proclaim the greatness of chyme for all?
Chyme will be launched from the trebuchet this evening...
...and manufacture delicious chyme...
wait, what the hell is going on in this thread?
We were just discussing the ChymeChancellor's majesty...
Mutha****in' snakes on a mutha****in' plane.
Snakes make chyme too...
I need to get to 500 today...
As an actor I deal with rejection everyday... all one can do it pick oneself and try try again
Other career. Probably go into the field of business with my degree, but I don't really want to. Maybe if that doesn't work out either, I'll go to the Air Force and try to become a pilot.
Chyme! I've had about enough of you!!! You're not reaching 500 before me!
Since this is already my second time applying, I can't honestly see myself going to apply 3 times if I don't get in this cycle. Sure there are people that can do that, and I give them props, but I don't know if I can do it financially and emotionally. Maybe I would do bioengineering.
Yeah... Okay DR. EUGENICS... I know that is your previous name...
I am not Dr. Eugenics, My name is Tobias, Dr. Tobias Funke
Sure it is...
I wonder how many of the "kill self" votes are serious.
Congrats Chancellor on both the thread hijacking and the post count!
Where is the post-bacc or masters option? isnt that a biggie?
I agree with Dr. K
if this number of people actually killed themselves, the reapplicant pool should be much smaller
i'm really worried about not getting in. i spent me and my husband's life savings taking pre-reqs/applying. i can't afford more coursework. does anyone know of a health career with the same pre-reqs as med school? i know PA school, nursing school require several more. What about pharm? I need to figure out a way to feed my kids if med school is a no-go...
I, too, am concerned with the sheer volume of "Kill myself" replies.
I'll probably work and volunteer. Also it would depend on why I get rejected. If my MCAT score really sucks I'll spend a lot of time trying to fix that, but hopefully I can get it right the first time.
I'm saddened by the lack of followthrough on it.....
I don't see why it's such a bit deal... you know at least 65-75% of those replies are intended to be funny.
As was mine Dr. Fuenke.
Dude, Dropkick's Guide to Dealing with Medical School Rejection should be blown up and pasted in this thread. I like the one with the bear.
So funny!! The little arrows are the best. They look like airplane evacuation cards!
What's with the number of 'kill myself' votes?
EDIT: Didn't read the rest of the thread.
i voted other: crawl into a ball and cry.
what about "Become an actor"
Pharmacy is a good option. Also dentistry. Those two probably pay the best.
It's probably what the majority of reapplicants do, and its probably the most successful way to better your app. I don't know why that's not listed.
courtesy of wikiquote:
I don't know thats true... although I personally would've reapplied had I not gotten in, I would've probably thought pretty hard and long about it... As a non trad with kids, applying and especially taking the MCAT while working full time and caring for my family, was an exhausting experience.If I hadn't gotten in, in order to improve my app, I would've had to retake the MCAT and find time to fit in a lot more clinical experience. I don't think I could stomach the MCAT a second time and am not sure where I could've found time for the clinical experience, except to just change jobs into something clinical, which would mean a big paycut.
Anyway, I'm sure there are plenty of people that have applied twice and don't want to try again for the above reasons and more.
If I get rejected everywhere, I'll have a f-ing meltdown. That's all.
How come nobody said they would try an apply for a med school thats overseas? Is there a down side to that thought which I am not aware of?
Absolutely. I'll just go after either an MPH, MPP or Master's in Bioethics (one of which I intend to get anyway), then reapply to med school afterwards.
