So- today was match day! Probably the most important day of med school after graduation. It's the day everybody finds out where they 'matched' for residency programs. Basically a day to find out if you got a job to be the doctor you want to be! It's super crazy and really exciting and there are lots of screams and tears and insanity. All of the results are put into envelopes and exactly at noon you are allowed to run up- grab yours- and rip it open! The whole event is really outrageous and so much fun (if you end up where you wanted, anyway). Unfortunately for us it was pretty anticlimactic since we 'matched' back in December. Military programs do things three months earlier than civilians. As nice as it has been to already know where we're headed and to have already found a house and everything- I was a little sad that we didn't get to be surprised along with everybody else :) They did make envelopes for all the military people, though.
