I stumbled on this. in 2013 I applied to 7+ MBA schools, top programs. I had a 660 and was not accepted into any school. Since then I've been battling constant depression and anxiety. I hate my life and threw my life upside down for a woman who I thought liked me because it was a coping mechanism/denial for how my life ended up. I recently went back to school, this time I took classes in computer science and hope to get into a program in CS. I'm now fighting a pretty serious physical illness now as well and life has really went downhill. I generally hate my life and go back between suicide and pushing on. I try hard and its led to a lot of disappointment and in some cases worked against me. Like with the girl, it made me seem desperate and unattractive.

I hope everybody gets into the school of their dreams and if not I hope it won't let it define their happiness. I think having a positive community around you that you respect helps.

Hey anon1,
Stay strong! I know how you must be feeling. I have been in the exact same spot.
I hope you get better results this time around, I'll be rooting for you. :)
I was just talking to a friend about a similar thing and I remarked how nothing in life comes easy for some of us... we just have to keep fighting.
And if you ever need someone to talk to, feel free to ping me here.

Hey anon1,

If you ever need someone to talk to ping me here. You are not alone! Many people fight depression and anxiety and come through victorious. It can be done and you will do it too.

Stay strong my friend. Life is not about some girl or some program that rejects you - even though it may feel like that when it hurts the most. Life is more than that - it has to be.

I won't preach to you - I know better than that. Just know that this community will stand with you and there are people who care.

All the best!

I would recommend you to read "The monk who sold his Ferrari" (Author: Robin Sharma), if you haven't read it already. It has fabulous techniques to nurture your mind and thought process, and I am sure it will provide you an all new perspective to look at the life. Good luck!

Hi man! I know you are passing through a hard moment but stay strong and positive and things will get better.
I would recommend you to watch "Peaceful Warrior" to get some motivation.
Hope you the best!

I have been also in the same situation. After applying for more than 10 schools I got a better result. :)
