We submitted Kody's application today. I don't know if I feel relief or anxiety. Maybe a bit of both. It is such a strange feeling. 3 1/2 years of medical school almost complete. Now all we can do is pray and wait. Hopefully in the next few weeks we will start hearing about interviews. Most programs are interviewing during October. Most programs only interview you if you have rotated with them. He applied to ten programs and has rotated at five of them. Sometimes students apply to every program in their desired specialty. There are thirty one orthopedic programs across the country. However, knowing that he would more than likely only get interviews where he had rotated, we stuck to the five he went to and five that he was interested in, but didn't make it to in person.
Please keep us in your prayers. Kody has worked so hard. He has put everything he has into this and now it is completely out of our hands. I'm so thankful that I have a husband who is so determined to be as good as he can be and has goals he wants to accomplish. I'm also lucky that he considers my well being (and Bailey's!) while trying to obtain those goals. We are a good team!
