I'm going to medical school!

I received my first acceptance yesterday, and I'm beyond thrilled. I really enjoyed my interview day at this school, and I was not expecting to hear from them this week at all, so it was a great surprise. 

I hope that I will have choices and be able to weigh school cultures, locations, finances, etc., but I am so glad to know that I am going. When I started thinking about and planning a route to medical school three years ago, I had no idea whether I could pull this off. It felt like a gigantic gamble.

Today I am going to soak in the happy and proud feelings. Then tonight it's time to prep for another interview at a great school.
