He's applied himself....

to medical school, that is.  The application process is finally complete and Zack couldn't be happier :) Zack has applied to 22 different medical schools (seems like SO many but the av. is 18) scattered throughout the country and we hope that at least one of them will accept us!  It is exciting and a little nerve wracking- but we're ready to go. 

For those of you who don't know much about the medical school application process, let me enlighten you.  First are the primary applications, which is what Zack has just finished.  After that almost every school will reply back to you and have you submit a secondary application which is basically asking you to write an essay on a topic the school chooses.  If they like your secondary application, you are invited to the school for the interview. Everything comes down to the interview!  After an interview it could still be 2-3 months before you hear anything- so, here's to months of waiting!  Wish us luck and keeps us in your prayers :) Every bit helps!

Hopefully two of those schools are Duke or Carolina? How fun it would be in the same state again!

I hate the waiting game--and secondary applications. I just spent 2 hours filling out secondary applications for BJ. Ugh. Good luck to you both. Can't wait to hear where you guys are going to end up for the next few years!
