Only one day until the GMESB results are released, and it's KILLING ME!!! :scared: I hope everyone gets good news tomorrow.

I :love: the military's "hurry up and wait" standard operating procedures. I don't know which will happen first - the results get posted or my gigantic duodenal ulcer perfs and I get admitted.

Well...The Navy states that they have until noon on the 15th to release the results...so chances are we'll also be waiting until the 15th.

You folks aren't helping out any here! By the time tomorrow comes and goes without any results, I'm gonna be a chain smoking, coffee pounding, Jolt cola drinking, amphetamine popping, glue sniffing wreck. I'm okay.... really. Now, where did I put my haloperidol??

does that mean you'll be continually checking the website in hopes of an earlier notification? man, i'd almost rather have a hard time to look forward to.

also, this seems pretty obvious, but can someone confirm that army results are released at noon EST? i'm hoping that all points west can look for an answer a few hours earlier.

Air Force people received an email stating that we will be informed by email on the morning of the 14th. (The results will also be posted online.)

What's done is done. Nothing you can do about it. Results are in, assignments made. No sense in going crazy over it.

For those that don't get the spot they want, sorry. Try again next year.

For those that get the spot they want - congrats.

Now we wait.....

Hope you all have better luck than I did. For me applications to the JSGME board were nothing but rejections and disappointment. Kind of like trying to find a date at the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, or at the set of the SI swimsuit edition, or the Playboy Mansion.

I am with all of you guys. This suspense is really starting to get to me. We will see how much sleep I get tonight. I am really on edge and short with people- my medics are avoiding me right now.

As a GMO- the notification means more than where I am going. It means I can plan my PCS escape from my current assignment. I can finally decide on what kind of car I will buy. Also- it determines which region of the country I will spend the next 3-4 years of my life Hawaii, DC, Texas, Seattle etc. Since it is cold and snowing where I am- lets us hope for Warm climates.

After I interviewed, I realized the Program Directors had all the say in where I am going. It is has been a difficult wating period. Especially when you consider that they made the decisions 2 weeks ago. What is the hold up?

I will probably be checking my e-mail and the website every few minutes. After I find out, I am going to drop my RFO that same day.

Hopefully- everyone has agreat day afterwards. If I get what I want - I know I will.

Good Luck to everyone

It's just after midnight in the Eastern time zone and I'm hoping the AF will put their results up tonight. I heard they did that last year.

I just realized that the AF results come from Texas, so I'm going to have to stay up until midnight Central time to see if they post them.
