Accepted to MSU College of Human Medicine

At 6:38pm this evening, I received a phone call from the Assistant Dean of Admissions from Michigan State University's College of Human Medicine telling me that the admissions committee had just met and voted to accept me into the 2012 entering class!! He was incredibly nice and excited for me - talk about the best phone call ever!!!

To slightly express my excitement, I will just say this: if you had been fishing on the river as I crossed the bridge on my silent electric bike tonight on my way home, you would have heard one long, drawn out, Doppler-Effect(ed) "YAAAAAAAAHOOOOOOOOO!!!!" echo victoriously across the night-shrouded waters.

At this time next year, I will be in medical school...!!!

I stumbled upon your blog exactly one week ago and have been anxious for your next post. I'm a second year at the U of MN. Best of luck next year, you will love it.

And, enjoy this time. It will be the least stressful point in your life where you can say "I'm going to med school" and not be plagued by med school.
