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.

Mechanical Engineering Department normally expects applicants to have a minimum grade point average of 3.2 (4.0 scale) or better for either the B.S. degree program or the last 60 hours of course work. Students applying to Mechanical Engineering must take the GRE and students whose native language is not English, must also take the TOEFL unless they have completed 30 hours at an English speaking university. The minimum acceptable score for applicants is 620 (260 computer based). Students will likely not be competitive with scores below a 450 and a 700 on the verbal and quantitative portions of the GRE, respectively. Test scores more than 2 years old should be re-taken. Scores of students recommended for acceptance are often higher. Research experience and the three letters of recommendation are a significant part of the evaluation of the application.

What is the minimum GRE and TOFEL score required for admission?
The minimum GRE score is a combined score of 2000 out of a possible 2400 (800+800+(133.33 * 6.0)=2400). Foreign students whose native language is not English are required to submit an official TOEFL examination score of 250 or 600 (depending on which test was taken) better unless they have spent at least three years at an academic institution in an English speaking country.
The GRE reporting code is 2926 (school code) along with 1502 (department code). The TOFEL reporting code is 2888.
Candidates may apply for admission to the School of Engineering by completing the application form which consists of: biographical information; a personal statement; two official letters of recommendation; two official transcripts and statement of class rank and grade point average from each university or college attended. Each application must include a non-refundable $70 application fee.
To insure full consideration, the application for admission, the application fee, official transcripts, letters of recommendation, and other required documents must be received by the appropriate office at least two months prior to the anticipated first semester of enrollment.

Deadline

While we prefer receiving applications for admission to the M.S.E. program by January 2 for the fall semester, we will process applications (assuming that there are openings) as late as June 1.
