For instance, I just learned that this girl I'm FB friends with is also applying to dental schools and is studying for the admissions test, like me. Except the thing is, she's an Ivy league graduate and super, duper smart...and AHHHH, how do I have any sort of chance when I'm competing for admission spots with people like her?!

Cue panic mode and wallowing in self-pity and despair and all that fun stuff. I'm happy that she's interested in the field too, and that's awesome for her, but just let me feel these emotions for right now!
