Interview #2

Currently listening to: Torn Blue Foam Couch - Grand Archives

Wow, the past five days have been so sweet, it finally feels like everything is falling into place. Got an email this morning saying that at the Warwick Selection Centre I will also be considered for Barts and The London GEP...which is my first choice! I'm so happy and relieved that my nightmare didn't become a reality! The selection centres are joint, but the decisions are separate, you can get accepted by both, accepted by one or rejected by both. An offer from either would suit me very well! I can't believe this time last year I was despairing over whether I'd even be able to apply for medicine...and now I've got two interviews! This is just so amazing, the minute my exams finish (in the first week of January), I will be able to devote a whole five weeks to getting totally prepared for these interviews.

On such a high right now that even this lab report which is due tomorrow doesn't feel totally awful and horrible!

What an amazing finish to the final week of term.

After the unpleasant nerve wracking experiences of the past few weeks, I'd been feeling pretty desperate for contact from the medical schools, any contact, even a curt email telling me to stop calling them several times a week asking when they're sending out interview invitations...but Warwick went one better today and emailed me an invitation to their Selection Centre in February for interview!

I'm still feeling slightly speechless from it all, but at the same time ecstatically happy because I was worried I wouldn't get any interviews before Christmas meaning that I'd be stressing all through the holidays when I'm supposed to be revising for exams...luckily now I can breathe a little easier knowing that I have at least one...and it's two months away giving me plenty of time to prepare for it.

I'm telling you, if getting an offer for medical school feels half as good as getting an interview, I can't wait to experience it...the true definition of a natural high! The past few days have been pretty tough, I had two essays and a presentation to hand in yesterday, and I'd had very little sleep...but this has made it all better!
