What is everyone going to do or what did everyone do the night you got accepted to medical school?

I plan on just going out and probably not remembering what happened...how about you???

Thank the Gods, and tell all of my family. The next day, I told my friends and the week or two later, all the profs who wrote me my recommendations and so on. Nothing extraordinary or anything. I was just really happy and proud to get the news across to everyone I knew.

I always envisioned going to a bar with all of my closest friends that have supported me through this process and toasting to shots until I woke up the next morning wondering what happened the night before. Instead, I took a walk, made my favorite dinner and read a little bit.

I had an erg test the next day, so I ate a plate of pasta and went to bed early. But last night, which was the day after my acceptance, there were a bunch of people over my apartment to celebrate my friend's B-day, and so we just added on my acceptance as another reason to celebrate.

Although, ask me again if/when I get into one of the 2 I'm waiting on and my answer will probably be vastly different.:horns:

I found out when I got home from work. It was 1 a.m. and I worked for about 10 hours. I went to the grocery store and got a candy bar and some Dr. Pepper.

I found out at around 3pm on a friday. I cracked a beer at 3:15 on that friday and the next thing I knew, it was saturday at 2pm and I had a craving for watermelon. I drove to the grocery store, bought a watermelon, and ate the entire thing.

I stopped filling out my AMCAS, called my dad, called my bf, called some friends, and then went to work an 18-hour EMS shift. THen I went to the dentist. Then I slept.

When I got up, however, there was much joy to be had. :D

I got so drunk I threw up at this bar and was banned for life from the place.

I was told that I got kicked out of a bar as well, but I still don't know why.

Knew I was gonna find out at 12 that night, so got really drunk before and then somehow checked my email. When I found out that I got in, I called my parents, somehow once again, and somehow coherently told them the good news. Now my mom thinks I'm an alcoholic. Sorry for the excessive somehows.

Hi, All

I got my first acceptance on Christmas Eve via e-mail at around 10 pm. It couldn't have been better scripted. After that, I had a turkey sandwhich and let the tryptophan lull me to sleep.

Last year, I bought a bottle of wine while on spring break in Napa to celebrate my pending acceptance. I checked my email that night and found out I didn't get in.:( I kept the wine for a year and drank it with my family the night I found out that I'd gotten in the second time around. :clap:

no parties here either. i thought i'd do something cool but ended up just hanging with my roommate, making dinner, and calling a few people. it was nice and low key which was probably good because i was in shock. the next day i was just totally stoked all day :)

jlee, if you end up at davis we'll have to party and celebrate before school starts, or at the 2nd look weekend in april if you're planning on going to that.
