Axl Rose to the Occasion

Today I got in to medical school!

I know, not as much fanfare as you might have expected from me considering that this blog was dedicated to the struggle of getting in to med school. I got the call today right after work, but I couldn't answer it because I was talking to the music store guy about becoming a guitar teacher there. I checked my voicemail afterwards, and there it was:

"I am calling to congratulate you on being accepted to our med school in Boston! You are a wiener!"

Just like that. But he had a pretty thick accent, so he might have been calling me a "winner"... In any case, yes, it is official. The journey that might have ended in sputtering defeat sometime next May will instead continue on and on and on.

Time to party! Axl out!


  1. Thanks! I'm super excited that this blog can now turn in to "crazy stories from med school"

  2. Congratulations! I look forward to following your journey & hope you'll find some time to relax and enjoy your free(er) time before you start med school!

  3. I have been checking this blog every couple of days waiting for this post. Congratulations! I am a non-trad working toward the same goal and am a year or two behind you. Thanks for the hope!

  4. congrats! t-minus 7 months until you start hating life :P

  5. Thanks all, this really is a dream come true, and I'm excited to share with you all whatever good, bad, and ugly things med school has in store for me! Onwards!
