Onward to victory...

Yeah, I know it's part of the Notre Dame fight song, but bear with me. :-D

I was driving home today, when my phone strikes up a chorus of the Nutcracker Suite. My phone is set up with a different ringer for every caller, and that's the "Caller Unknown" ring. I answer, and guess who it was?

Wright State University School of Medicine.

"Is this Casey Lastname?"
"Hi, Casey. I'm John from Wright State School of Medicine, and I'd like to offer you an interview."
*mind reels*
"All right, when can you get me in? When do you have?" *talking excitedly and faster*
"I have October 26th, if that would work for you."
"I'll take it!"
"Great! We'll be sending a confirmation email out early next week."
"Excellent! Thank you!"
*usual pleasantries and disconnection*
*nearly runs off the road doing a happy dance*

YES!!! Finally! :-D

Got my suit, my properly subdued tie, a broad smile and a steady handshake. I'm good to go. My new life begins now. :-)

Man, congrats on the interview, and for some reason, if the job is for you I know you will get it, I can just feel it. Stay in touch!
