Sending you good vibes! And congrats on Ross. I've heard that some students rent a plane and travel together to the Caribbean? Seems like a lot of work but I'm sure you will find a solution if needed! Fingers crossed for a US school!I'm all right, glad the waiting game is coming to an end. My semester is starting so I've been more busy. I got into Ross and I'm waiting to hear back from Ohio, and then still need to interview with Tufts on Tuesday. I thought I would be more worried at this point but I'm genuinely relieved that it's almost over and I'll know soon.
I have mixed feelings about the Caribbean now that I've learned how tricky it is to bring dogs over especially during pandemic times, so I'm really hoping I get positive news from a US school. if not, I may take a hit and reapply next year to a greater number of US/Canadian schools.
I hate not knowing but I've been so strung out I'm trying to like...find balance somehow
I'm interviewing at U of I in two weeks and I am just so stressed! It's my first interview and I almost can't believe it's happening!
Congrats on your dream school!!!!! It inspires me when I see other non-traditional students making their dreams become a reality!I agree with the waiting, even though I got into my dream school, I'm still waiting to see if/where else I get in + financial aid/scholarships before I make a commitment. I would love to just pull the trigger on my first choice but I want to make a smart informed decision about it (plus the deposit and visa alone are ~8,000 dollars and I just don't have that right now). I'm interviewing Edinburgh and Penn this week, then I'm finally done with interviews!
Other than that, I'm now working full time (and about to pick up a second job part-time because money) and really missing classes 😂 I got my diploma yesterday and it made it feel very real that I was finally done undergrad. On the other hand, I got all in my feels when I saw it because it was a representative of all my hard work both in class and gaining veterinary/animal experience. Anyone else feel like your pre-vet journey helped change you into a person you're actually proud to be???
I hope everyone else is doing well and staying strong! Honestly when I'm bored I real other schools' threads and get all excited when I see others getting excited about interviews/acceptances. It makes me so happy to see my peers doing well! 🤩
SO CLOSE GUYS. WE'RE GONNA BE BABY VETS SOON OMG!!!!!!!!!
When thinking back on my journey (although parts were very challenging), I am so grateful to have a wide range of experiences. I think that my career within addiction rehabilitation and my own battle with alcoholism has prepared me to be a strong and compassionate doctor.
