Match Day was about a week and a half ago. And while B and I were quite lucky to already know the contents of our envelope (although we did double-check!), none of our friends did. It made for a pretty sleepless night the night before and plenty of nerves.
For the most part, our closest group of friends all got their number one choice! However, two of our other friends didn’t match into their decided specialties and had to do The Scramble to get a prelim year somewhere. They have, and each day feel a bit better about the road ahead.
It was a day of celebrations, from the ceremony, to a reception for our families, to a nice dinner and a night of closing down the bar. And I’m glad we got to share the experience with our family. It was just about a perfect day.
And while I’m sad to be dispersing across the country and starting over again, I feel so appreciative of the last four years and all the wonderful people we’ve met.
Congrats M4s! So wonderful to see the happy payoffs of sooo much HARD work!
