I was so proud of Jason. I AM so proud of Jason. He has worked so hard to get here. It is crazy to think that we are really doing this. Really in med school. My husband is really going to be a doctor. Jason is really going to do what he wants, help people, save lives, make a difference. I know it is going to be long, and everyone has warned me that it is going to be hard. We made it through the first week of just orientation classes, and we really missed him, I guess I'm not sure what to expect when real classes start on Monday. But he will be incredible as always.
The White Coat Ceremony is when all of the first year med students receive their first "white coat" which signifies the beginning of their medical career. They talked about how hard everyone has worked to get to be where they are at. They talked about how everyone one of them was the top of their class and that they were all chosen to come to this school for a reason. "There were over 3,000 applicants for the 230 spots for the class of 2018. Feel special!" and we definitely do. Out of all the interview opportunities we had Jason knew this was where he wanted to be. They only accept 8-10% of the incoming class to be from out of state, and the majority of those students come from BYU. Jason even received a scholarship on top of that! Ok, done bragging...
I think there was only one other person there more proud and excited than I was.
So glad she was able to see her son follow his dreams today too.
