Hey, I know the feeling of rejection.
enguin: I was rejected last semester (well kind of.. I was told I would be re-evaluated).
Anyway, pursuing something that is more in line with your interest is not a bad option. In fact, 6 years ago I wanted to attend nursing school but I had no way of doing so because I need to continue to work full-time. So a few years later I applied and was accepted into an MBA program.
I continued to work full-time and I attended graduate school part-time. I gained valuable experience in business and health care in the process. I am VERY glad I did this because if I had gone the nursing school route first I would have never known that my talents and interest lay in business as well as health care.
I plan to work as a Registered Nurse but on the admin and public health side. I too feel God was looking out for me! So good luck to you and your journey.
Who knows? You may be back our way later on. Or you may find something better suited to your needs and talents. Either way, may you find a way to grow in your career so you may be better able to serve God!!!
