Well, Matt got a call yesterday that he has been waiting for for A LONG time now. It was a call he often wondered if he'd ever get, and after months and months of an agonizing application process our steam was beginning to run out. But, alas, it came. He got a call from the admissions office at Rocky Vista University. They told him that he has officially been accepted into their medical school. Oh happy day!
He called me, and when he told me the good news, I could hardly believe it. I didn't know whether to cry, scream or die I was so excited! We went down to Colorado last weekend for his interview, and weren't really expecting to hear back so soon.
When he recieved the call he was on a job installing an alarm at a customers house. The school told him that if he was accepted he'd recieve a call, if he was put on the waiting list, he'd recieve an email, and if he was rejected, he'd get a letter in the mail. They told him to be looking for a "303 number" and if he saw it, to make sure he answered his phone. So, when he saw the "303 number" he ran outside of the customer's house and answered his phone. They told him the great news and he said that he was just freaking out and kept saying "thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!" over and over. I wish I could've been there to see it. :)
He has another interview in Washington in March that he is still planning on going to. We have also applied to several other schools that we're still waiting to hear back from, so we'll just have to see what happens there. We're going to wait and see if we get in anywhere else, and then weigh our options and deciede which school will be best for our family. I really liked Colorado, and the area where the school was. I could totally see us living there, so we'll just have to see what happens!
