For my third and fourth year, I have to do clinical rotations at a hospital or with doctors in their private practices. We wanted to stay in KC, our first choice, but we didn't match. We didn't even match to our second choice, Palm Beach (which I am super sad about. I totally would have appreciated a year by the beach.) Nope, we matched to my third choice, Madison Heights, MI. The whole match process is a bit like a lottery, and similar to the residency match.
I don't even know why I picked Michigan. Something must have been drawing me there...
We won't be moving for a while (8 months), so we will make the most of our time in our cheap, cheap house ($381/month. Sob.) and hope to find a nice, inexpensive home to rent in Michigan.
I promised to get Eliza a new pair of Uggs when we go. So she's excited.
