Can't believe I finally got an interview here. It feels so fuckin good to finally feel rewarded after writing the MCAT 5 times over 4 of the past 5 summers. I'm also shocked that I'm sitting here with 3 interviews after spending my past 5 years telling myself Ottawa will be the only shot that I'll get.
