Default Pins & Needles

So basically I'm awaiting the results to Physician Assistant school through the military. I applied back in March and the results are supposed to come out "sometime at the end of August."

This is a huge jump in my career path in the military, it would take me from an enlisted medic to a commissioned officer and hopefully a line PA. It would also provide me with a masters degree through the University of Nebraska. It's a very competitive program where there were about 1,00o applicants last year, they selected roughly 115 or so.

Anyway, been kinda hectic this week and I'm constantly checking my emails in hopes I get some good news. If I don't make it I will just re-apply next year but to make it in this time would be absolutely amazing. Needless to say, I'll be on pins & needles until I get the email.

-Chris

This is awesome. This is something that I sincerely admire and wish you only the best. Hope it works out for you! And you know what, if it doesn't right now, just try again. Let us know.

Program manager came out and said the list will probably be out sometime next week, "at the earliest."

If only I had a case of something to bust in order to keep my mind off of waiting for this list.... I wonder if I can convince my wife of this "need"

There are other things that can calm a man's nerves that the wife may be able to help with ....try that route if the card thing doesn't work out

Haha, we actually just had a newborn (actually a premmie) as my son was 5 weeks early. At the moment I think wax busting may be my only option.
