Do over.

'Failure is the opportunity to begin again more intelligently.'  -Henry Ford

I am the new owner of 4 rejections.

I shall be re-applying. :/

I'm actually kind of excited. A gap year will give me the chance to improve my confidence and make sure my application is amazing. I've emailed some consultants for some work experience and I'm going to do a lot more volunteering as well. Really need to start properly studying, gotta make sure I get the grades!

Congratulations to all those who got offers this cycle, and I hope anyone still waiting gets some good news very soon. :)


  1. Oh no, did you get rejected from your remaining choices? Sorry to hear it :(

    Best of luck for next year.

  2. I thought you still had three other choices as well?

  3. Yeah, got rejected from 'em all. I've edited the post, as it seemed unclear about what had actually happened.

    And thanks, I hope next year is better too. I'm going to try my hardest to make sure it is. :)

  4. So sorry to hear this arsenic! If you want any advice on the next application cycle then let me know! Good luck, I know you can do it- please don't stop blogging either.

  5. So sorry to hear, but the chances of getting in after reapplying are always better than the first time so I'm sure you'll get in.

  6. Sorry about this mate, but glad you are excited about the gap year. I have heard some awesome gap year stories, now you can be the one telling them!

  7. Rejection is always difficult but your positive attitude about it speaks volumes about your character. Best of luck with your gap year.

  8. 'Failure is the opportunity to begin again more intelligently.'

    Ah, love this adage. Indeed failure is not just a negative implication but it could also lead to a positive one, such as learning from our failures and mistakes. :) You can do it.

    Take care,
