Match Day

On Friday March 16 was Match Day for all 4th year medical students across the U.S. We (my husband, myself, my mother-in-law, brother-in-law, my mom and her friend) all nervously got dressed that morning preparing for the day. Jeanne just ran around all morning, abliss to the fact that our future was fixing to be carved in stone.

We had a brunch to go to that morning at 9:30. After standing in line for 30 minutes, we were finally able to enjoy a catered brunch of shrimp and grits. It was awesome! Then we all walked to the atrium where the ceremony was to be held.

The process is that the first student is picked at random. Said student walks up, says his/her name, their matched profession, and then they open the envelope and read the school they are going to. Then that student reaches in a bag and pulls out the envelope for the next student. So while we are all pilled in the atrium waiting, Jeanne is thrilled about everyone clapping. She thinks she did something wonderful, and I tell her such. :-)

At 11:35, it was my husband's turn:

So you can see we are headed to Little Rock!! Now we are trying to decide if we should buy a house or rent, what are good school districts, and I am filling resumes with every company I can think of!
