This post is significantly different from all others I have made.
But I feel the need to shout something to the world, so here goes.
I'm going to medical school!
The match results came in on Tuesday, and I matched to the school I really wanted.
I also ran the numbers and realized that I'll be roughly $130,000 in debt in four years and still have 3 - 5 years of making $50,000 per year while working 80 hours a week in residency. This is roughly twice the recommended amount of debt I should take on with the salary I can expect to earn even after residency, as a practicing physician.
But that's not what matters here. God has been good to me; I marvel often at how the blessings of heaven are poured out on my head.
I'm doing what I really want to do, and I'm tremendously excited about the school, the hospital where I'll be training, and the city itself.
Thanks be to God.
