see that envelope up there? well, on friday, our future was lying inside. match day is pretty much the most stressful/nerve-racking/exciting day for medical students. it’s a national ceremony where fourth year med students find out where they will be placed for residency (and where they will spend the next 3+ years of their lives!). it’s a huge, complex ranking system where the students rank their choices after they interview with the programs they’ve applied for, and the programs also rank them. then the computer does its thing and the students are [hopefully] matched with a program. friday was the day when they found out where they matched! i was sweating like crazy and i’m not even a student! there was so much anticipation in that room. the students each got an envelope and then had to open them at the same time! eeep! we are SO thankful, blessed, and excited that reis matched into a great pediatrics program (and also where he/we wanted to be the most)! we will be moving back to southern california this coming june!!! i am so very proud of this guy and i cannot wait for the adventures ahead of us!
