Drum roll please….I am matched. And have a job, starting on June 19th [i think?]. I should check that out, eh?
Match Day was awesome! I am not going to write too much here, because I actually have an audio blog that I did for the Admissions Office [will post a link once it’s up!]. However, Michigan Medical School knows how to throw a great party. We all gathered at the North Campus Research Complex [former Pfizer plant that now houses tons o’ research space] in the ballroom. The energy in the room was incredible–148 Michigan students found out where they would be spending the next 3-7 years of their life. To put it mildly, that is definitely a unique experience–one day determines your fate for years!
At 12 noon [on the dot], I went out to the hallway and grabbed my envelope. Sarah and I had decided to open it before going on stage–she was so nervous she couldn’t eat the amazing lunch, so we figured let’s just get it done with. I opened the envelope and it said…”Congratulations, you have matched! University of Michigan Anesthesiology.”
I am SO excited. After seeing so many great programs around the country, I realized that sometimes, the best thing is right where you already are. 6 of my classmates matched with me into the program, so I will certainly know a good chunk of my co-interns. I am really blessed and beyond thrilled to be able to spend the next 4 years here!
Now I am just finishing out the rest of medical school, which is pretty chill. May 11th is graduation, which will certainly prove to be another great day [and excellent finish] to my medical school career.
Any questions as the deadline approaches for y’all, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
