Defining Moments

How I responded to discouragement


    Messages from undefined:

    The most difficult part for me along this path was getting into a clinical PhD program. I applied for two years and didn't get in anywhere, and I finally got in my third year, so those two years were pretty rough.

  • How I responded:

    Keep at it. I learned from these rejections and it helped me enter a program that was more suited to me.
