facing failure


I won't be coming around here so often. I failed the exam I took at the end of January. Hopefully my med school doesn't give me the boot. I'm going to start hitting the books again and sign up to take the test over once I hear back from my school.

It's difficult to take something like this. I used a trick people know about to find out whether I passed before getting the score in the mail. You can go online and check to see if it's been reported yet. Then you can try signing up for the exam again. If it stops you, consider yourself in the clear. If it lets you continue with the sign up process, you failed. I kinda knew what was in the mail since Thursday. I spread out most of the disappointment so that I wasn't so shocked when I saw it on paper.

All I can do is keep trying. I just hope I have the energy to keep studying for this beast. This failure could have a profound impact on my career. I will look less appealing to residency programs and that will decide where I end up.
