    Gettingby got a reaction from mdhopeful26 in Here for you   
    Hi Everyone  
    Over the past couple of years I have religiously scrolled through Premed101 with so many doubts in my head; coming across posts that gave me confidence and others that tore it down. After years of hard work, I have finally made that cumbersome leap from a premed to a med student (Bumblebee Class of 2024). I'm still in disbelief that I made it and hope I never lose this feeling. I've found myself reflecting on my journey thus far (thank you Covid19 for all the time) and have come to realize that perseverance and hard work were the stars in my story when everyone and everything around me told me I wasn't good enough.
    With about a month left before I finally embark on this next chapter of my story, I wanted to use my time to help any of you out there that feel lost, scared, or unsure. As someone that didn't have any mentors on my path to medicine, I think I would've benefited from talking to someone that had gone through the process. 
    Please feel free to message me with any questions you have about Canadian, US, or International medical school admissions or even if you need a friend to vent it all out  
    As a disclaimer, I'm not affiliated with any company/school and will probably not have all the answers, but I can try to give you my thoughts/advice from my own experiences. 
    I'll be here for you if you need it

    Third for me too, and with gap year and Master degree. It will probably be my last since I will be set to abroad schools if Canada does not work out.

    Since people found this funny, will update you on what I dreamed last night as it seems to be a continuation of that dream lol....
    Dream: 
    So its med acceptance day, but for a weird reason we didn't get emails but instead got letters mailed to us to tell us if we got accepted or not. With the letter is a  rubric they used to score our interview. I read my letter and it say rejected but then I start looking at the rubric and realize someone didn't calculate the marks right as the math didn't make sense.   Flash forward a bit and I am now at Ottawa talking to the dean about the mistake. He agrees there is a mistake and I should have gotten an offer but says that he can not correct the math. Only my interviewer can correct the math.  So the rest of my dream is me trying to find Voldemort so he can correct the stupid rubric...  I finally find him and I'm like ... "Mr. Dark Lord, I am sorry to bug you but you forgot to carry the one here..."  Then I woke up...
    Waiting for med acceptances is messing with my head it seems.
