I'm just so nervous not to have a net. I know that sounds bad, but I don't mean it to. It's like... what if Boston decides they hate me and then I have nothing? I feel kinda like an old SDNer named slickness was feeling, but he's not around anymore ;)

That's it! I'm doing it and no one can stop me! :smuggrin:

AlreadyinDebt,

When did you get off the waitlist at BU? At least, I thought you were on the waitlist. So, why BU over Loyola?

It feels good to finally decide where you're going. I know I felt great when I made up my mind. It's weird, I have nothing to really worry about in regards to the whole application process now. I've spent more than a year dealing with. It's anticlimatic.

I don't really know if what I was on at BU was called a waitlist, but I interviewed in time for the first round of acceptances and was deferred to the second round. Officially, it was March 11th, I think.

I chose BU for a couple of reasons. BU's affiliation with two GREAT hospitals and the a broader spectrum with respect to socioeconomic status of patients was a big part. BU and Boston were very diverse, whereas Chicago was just black or white. I also feel that I will come out a more thoroughly trained physician at BU because of these reasons. A part of me also feels that I will be more inclined to match back on the West Coast coming from BU... if I feel I still want to come back, that it. Finally, my Aunt, Uncle and 4 cousins live in Yonkers, NY, which is only three hours away from BU. I really feel like I made the right decision.

What is crazy, though, is that I am not "for sure" on where I will be going! I'm on the alternate list at UCI and am still waiting to hear back from Loma Linda post-interview, both of which I would attend over BU.

So, all I can really do is wait it out.
