…. And so it begins! Tomorrow is my fourth interview and I’m starting to get my feet wet in the crazy process. Luckily, I have the next 2 MONTHS away from clinical duties (crazy, I know) so I am using this time for a bit of soul searching and so recuperating. I hope that I come out on the other end with a really good idea of what I want my residency experience to look like.
I have also been filling some of my free time on my med school’s admissions committee. I love meeting the new applicants and hearing their stories. It is also a nice reminder of how far I have come through the craziness that is medical school. When talking to the applicants, I am also reminded of how much I love my school and the people I have met here. I cannot believe it is coming to an end!!
I am in a hotel room waiting to meet a friend in an unfamiliar city. I am looking forward to him showing me around and imaging what life would be like should I am match here.
O! I had my first “match nightmare” the other night! It was horrible. I hate how much uncertainty is ingrained in this process. It is so hard for me to know my “worth” in terms of how I will match- it seems as though everyone is so talented and qualified!
Gotta run! This was random.
