As you can see, my countdown clock ran itself down to 0. I got the news by email at about 7:30 am. I know you are all in suspense.
Going into it I thought I had a surprisingly good chance considering what a long shot it was to apply only to one school. Everyone was telling me it would be crazy for them not to choose me as I am well qualified and they have not had a woman in years and years.
When I got the email it was like, "Finally, after all of these months, and a long night, it is here."
And I have to admit I was surprised (a bit) to see
"We regret..." That put a fast end to all of the waiting.
I am disappointed. Maybe slightly relieved. Mostly, I am annoyed that I was so excited to be a regular old dentist and now I am dreading having to ever make a denture again or a crown on #15, etc. So today I think I am feeling a little bad.
