    I can't believe it!!!!

    I just got the call today, and I'm going to medical school at the University of Minnesota--twin cities!!!

    This was always my first choice! I don't have to move or anything! I'm freaking out... :D

    For those of you with wacky/funky stuff on your record, take heart: There are NINE F's on my undergraduate record. Yep, NINE!!! And no post-bach grades either, since I never got a degree when I left school before.

    I have done really well in the three years since I've been back in school though, and I did well on the MCAT, did some TAing, research, blah bee blah.

    Anyway, I just wanted to let you guys know that I couldn't have done it without this board. The info and support I've gotten here were and are priceless. I couldn't have made my way through all the AMCAS problems and sending out paper copies of apps without you all, so THANKYOU ThANKYOU THANKYOU THANKYOU THANKYOU!!!

    OK... getting calmer now...oh heck no I'm not...WOO-HOO!!!

    Congratulations, that is awesome.

    I am really encouraged. I think that I am sort of in the same boat as you; I received six F's when I was younger, but my trend is good since I returned to school and I have a good MCAT (didn't you get like a 40, though?). Anyway, thanks for showing the way.

    Racergirl,

    I am very pleased to read your news. You must be very excited and have a great sense of accomplishment and anticipation. Your advice to me months ago has been an inspiration ever since, and I am inspired anew with the announcement of your acceptance.

    While you say you are grateful to this board for your success, I think this board (at least this reader of the board) is also grateful to you for your participation. Way to go!

    Thanks everyone!

    It's hours later, but it still hasn't sunk in. My BF called his entire family with the news (cute huh?) and we've both been walking around giggling at each other all night.

    You know, now that i'm a bit calmer, I think there's a very good chance I swore at the admissions director when she gave me the news over the phone...OOPS! To be more specific, I think I might have said "Holy Fu*#ing S*it!" I don't think I did, but I don't remember! She also said something about a packet coming next week, but I don't remember that either--it's all a blur, baby!

    To Aspirant--I'm glad I helped. Stick to it--If I can do it, so can you. Rise from those ashes!
