Several days ago I received an email from the program coordinator stating that I haven’t sent in my official signed acceptance. To add to the drama, the day the email was sent is the same day for the deadline to reply. So here I am, checking my mail every day thinking that it should get there any time now. I never received it. In fact, it has been a week since this exchange and I still have not received the official letter. Luckily, I had asked if they can just send the letter over email and the coordinator quickly obliged. I received my letter, printed it, signed it, scanned it and sent it back promptly. Within 5 minutes I got a “perfect, thanks!”. This brings me to my next point.
What a feeling it is to be accepted. I had received an unofficial email but to get the actual letter, was something else. I suppose now the last stage of applying to any program starts. I need to start preparing. I’ll be moving to a different and new city. I’ll have to sell my very expensive car and go for a very cheap car. My successful practice will transition to another doctor. It is truly a huge step down in current lifestyle to what I consider will be a huge step up in future lifestyle. Still I could not be more excited, the feeling I have right now, of accomplishment is undeniably amazing.
