  1. Congrats on all of the interviews.
    You’ll survive it. Everyone does somehow.
    I totally felt similarly when my CaRMS stuff started… Such a rollercoaster and so ridiculous.

  2. 17 in 3 hours??? i clearly applied to the wrong specialty. i switch to yours.

    (also, there are definitely worse problems to have. sounds like there’s no way you’ll have a problem matching!)

  3. Ok. This has been bothering me for months. What movie is the “Wait, what?” gif from? I know I’ve seen it.
