The only school I applied to last year was NYU, I put so much time and effort into my personal statement, my recommendations were glowing, my transcript was not great. I got rejected. I found out at work and I was just devastated. I found the strength to keep it bottled up for the day, but by the time I got home I just cried. And I cried. And cried some more. This was last April, I put it all on the back burner without ever giving up entirely on it, but now I'm ready to get back on the ball. I'm not your average student, I'm 24 and had to put my education on hold because of money trouble. The university I was attending doesn't offer nursing, and now I'm in a pretty unconventional transfer situation.
Rejection happens, and if there's anything I regret about the situation it's not taking the time to do all my pre-reqs before applying. I didn't know what I was doing when I applied, and I deserved to be rejected. After doing a little research and making some contacts, I'm finally getting my sh*t together, and hopefully I'll be in a BSN program by Fall 2014.
Don't take it as hard as I did. Just do what you have to do, and get back to it. The crying was useless and only ended in me feeling sorry for long enough to miss 2 semester's worth of deadlines.
Good luck to you, and just don't take it so hard!
