OMG!!!! I finally got the call!!!

  1. I just got the call from the admissions department inviting me to start clinicals in January!!! OMG!!! Unbelievable!!!

    My school starts 40 students in August and another 40 in January. It is completely based on a "meet these minimum reqs, first-come, first-served" basis. Not even a 4.0 will get you in any sooner than when your number comes up. The last person that was given an invite got hers over 3 weeks ago. It had been so long since then that I had completely convinced myself that the class was set and there would be no more opening (from students deferring until August.)

    I had come up with a plan B, C, AND D.... had registered for other courses AND had convinced myself that it was MUCH BETTER that I would be starting clinicals in August (last I knew I was #4 on the waiting list so August was a shoo-in.)

    Lo and behold...... I got the call.

    Now I have to DECIDE if I really should start in January, or if I have been right for the last month in convincing myself to wait...... AAAUHHHH!!!:roll :roll :roll

    I don't think I'll be sleeping much tonight!! LOL

    A saying comes to mind.... all things happen for a reason. Ring any bells?

    What other courses do you have to take? What are the reasons it would be better to wait?
