See, the thing is that Ben chose to only apply at 6 schools for residency. He only got 4 interviews, and we THINK he'll match to his #1 pick as I described earlier, but how much can you really count on what you feel in all this craziness that is the interview/match process. I quietly put my 2 cents in that I thought he should apply and interview at more schools because of course, the thought of scrambling is a nightmare. His school recommended more...way more, but he is confident that for him, it isn't necessary. To him, I smile, and pretend to be completely faithful in him, while inside I'm uh, I'm freaking out in a major way, people!! What if we don't match at one of those 4 programs!? Because he was over-confident, I have to pack up all my stuff and move to ghetto, Michigan with my 2 young kids? Jackson will start school wherever we move, and we planned on having another baby that first year of residency! Where we go is kind of important for us, too! PLUS, apparently the school Ben wants to rank #1 is the most sought after program in Texas!
On the other hand, a friend from school interviewed there recently, and came back saying several of the residents and program directors he met with asked him if he knew Ben and told him how much they really liked him. (He rotated and interviewed there in September and made some friends in high places.) Ben's friend said he was glad he could say he knew Ben so well because he felt like that gave him an advantage!
So....I just keep going back and forth inside, but I don't dare tell Ben (like he needs that kind of wife drama from me right now.) I can't wait until Match Day! I NEED to know!
