Getting into graduate and medical school is a lengthy and stressful process. After studying for the MCAT, submitting applications, and waiting, it can be disappointing, frustrating, or even disheartening to not get in. Coping with these emotions, discerning next steps, and preparing to reapply can be emotionally, psychologically, and intellectually challenging. This discussion group offers a space for trainees to discuss their feelings and get support as they navigate the reapplication process. This discussion will be facilitated by OITE Wellness Advisor Jenn Wiggins.
