I've already talked on Monday about being rejected by every medical school I applied to other than Toronto and being on the verge of giving up. Well a friend of mine told me to not give up hope... So I held on to the thought of hearing back from Toronto (my top choice btw).
Well a miracle happened this week. I got two emails this Tuesday, I couldn't believe my eyes. Not only did I get an interview with University of Toronto MD program but also the MD/ PhD program (my dream for years now). Now back to the emotional roller coasters, sky rocketing to the top this time :P
I mean, Toronto MD/PhD is just wow... Like honestly Toronto? The place where insulin was discovered? Could life get any better then this? I double checked the statistics and the odds are pretty good. They invite about 500 people for interviews and they have around 250 spots (they send out more acceptances because some people reject the offer). For MD/PhD it's a similar idea- 20 people are invited for interviews, 10 get in. It's like all of the previous rejections made me realize just how much I want this.
The few friends I told this too got super excited. I now have interview prep plans with 1 friend and another one is taking me to do more clothing shopping. Yay :)
What kind of curve balls has life thrown at you? Any interview prep tips? :)
