Medical School Reject-O-Rama

Trail of a medical school candidate

Hisashi T Fujinaka

“And you thought you have rejection letters. See what Hisashi received in less than five years and over sixty attempts. His bio should inspire you not to loose heart. Try, Try and Try again son.”

Before you ask questions, do some homework. Click on some of my other links. Just because my first name is “Hisashi” doesn’t mean I wasn’t born in Portland, Oregon (I was), that I’m not a U.S. Citizen (I am), and that I’m not an Eagle Scout (I am, even though I no longer support the Boy Scouts of America.)
Just because they’ve always told you that hard work will get you your heart’s desires doesn’t mean it’s true. There’s a lot of luck involved in life and I’m kind of tapped out right now.
I can’t tell you to avoid applying to medical school. I will tell you that it, in part, had left me without a job, bitter, and without much confidence. Maybe when you’re approaching 40, you won’t be living with your parents or applying for jobs tutoring beginning computer students with a degree from MIT. But my problems are my own and anti-depressants didn’t do much to help me with it.
Good luck!
Some of the rejection letters are missing because I didn’t complete all the secondaries.
