|I can't wait to get a sweatshirt of this, the modified Spartans logo with the CHM x-ray skull in the center. Very cool.|
I got the chance to personally thank Dr. Joel Mauer, the Assistant Dean for Admissions, for the personal phone call he made to notify me of my acceptance to the school. I have never heard of any other schools giving every student a personal phone call when they've been accepted; it's usually done by email or snail mail. He responded that he feels like that method of delivery really exemplifies the personal attention that MSU CHM gives to each of their students, and I cannot agree more.
The day was incredible, and I couldn't be more psyched to start my education at this phenomenal school. The staff are incredible, the students were easy to get along with, and I think I will enjoy the different course formats once I get used to the swing of things. In short, yesterday got me pumped.
I will be requesting the Grand Rapids campus for a variety of reasons, first and foremost because it will be closer to my wife. That's right - we are going to need to live separately for a couple of semesters as Nicole works on her Nursing degree. Luckily, it sounds like the school will be accommodating in this matter, so I don't think it will be a problem to get placed in Grand Rapids. Plus, I already have a SWEET deal worked out to allow me to rent the basement from my wife's sister and brother-in-law for way less than I could find a room anywhere else. Blessings abound, and excitement increases that much more...
