Medical School News

So, Brent has been waiting and waiting for his application to be sent to the schools. It was finally sent out on Wednesday and so now we're waiting to hear from the schools about filling out the secondary application. I hate waiting!!

But, in good news, he received an email from one school in Maine Thursday morning. We thought that was a pretty good sign. Then, yesterday afternoon he received a personal phone call from the head of recruiting at Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine!!! He wanted to make sure Brent didn't have any questions about the next step in the application process and basically to encourage him to finish his application to LECOM. Brent was pretty stoked about that kind of reception to his application. I was more than stoked! LECOM has been my #1 choice for quite some time. I can't really explain why, except that I love the East, I am intrigued by Pennsylvania and the campus looks beautiful. Not to mention that I like their program and housing is more affordable there than here in Utah.

So, the wait continues, but at least there's a light at the end of the tunnel. I'm excited to see what the next week brings. Congratulations, Brent. You've worked hard for this and I'm so glad it's finally happening!! Good luck!!!

I know, it's a long way out, but when will he start to hear back?

Great News! We have been secretly hoping for Stanford's Medical School or UCSF. I guess if you guys head out East, we will REALLY have to come out and visit! Great work, keep us posted.
