So it's a couple months after you've applied and you're on edge because, of course, you want to get accepted to your top school. Suddenly everyone around you is getting letters in the mail. Some good, some not so good; accepted - Yesss!!!, waitlisted - crapp!!, rejected - SHIT!!! and then you get really nervous because you don't know where you stand. So everyday you check your mailbox in hopes of getting a letter from someone, anyone. A couple weeks go by and still, nothing. What is going on?? So your next step is to phone the schools and ask them what's up with your application only for them to tell you to be patient as it is still under review. So you wait. Until one day, you've finally got a letter. You're excited, nervous. It's from your top school, did I get in? You slowly and cautiously open the seal of the envelope, close your eyes and cross your fingers. Count to five and slowly open one eye, then the other...
Different schools have different ways of how they phrase your..."fate." So you browse the page and look for those fateful words. It sucks how some schools take you on a high before slamming you to the ground! so you finally get to the line, and it reads, " We are pleased to have had so may qualified applicants this cycle" your heart starts to pound, could it be, could it be, oh my god, ..."there were many strong points noted on your application" Holy crap I think I'm in! "...However," Uh oh ..."due to the high volume of applicants and the low number of seats available at our institution" oh, please please please don't say no... "we regret that you were not awarded a spot in our school this cycle" !!!
You take a moment for it all to sink in. You put the letter away and try to cheer yourself up because hey, this is only ONE of the quadrillion schools you've applied to. So over the next couple weeks the letters keep rolling in. A few more "Craps!!"
What should you do if none of the schools that you've applied to accepts you? This is the dilemma that no student wants to be in. The reality is only a small percentage actually get in each year. However, if your goal of becoming a dentist is really your first love, do not hesitate to reapply.Do not allow your rejections to overwhelm you for too long. Remember, every drawback is a set-up for a comeback (author unknown).
