For one school, I needed Comp II instead of Physics. I was going to take Physics this spring, but failed to take a prerequisite course...Physical Science. That bumped me out of the "other" medical school and left me with my primary medical school.
I did my interview and was really hit with some left field questions. I got really nervous a couple of times and well, it was obvious. 108 applicants and 22 positions. Statistically, a 20.4% chance....
Plan B is being formed this week. Reapply to primary medical school next year ( which will be half price because spouse works there ) and continue with my college doing prerequisites . I'll take a Humanities class, Medical terminology, Physical Science, and Physics. This will give me a much better chance and two options for next year if I don't get accepted this year. The financial front with be more of the same, save more cash. Plus, We'll be able to pay off the newer used car.
I should know by Mid-April if I am fully accepted, provisionally, alternate, or rejected. I'm hoping and praying that the 3.9 GPA puts me above the other 85 people.
This should bring the point home to always have a Plan B, and to make sure it will work. The prepping adage of "Two is One" rule should have been applied.
