Done and Done

Many of you have already heard the end to this story but I'll give my account. My senior year of high school, I became interested in Dental Hygiene school. The summer after high school and the following summer, I worked as a dental assistant to get some experience and make sure that is what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. I came up to BYU in the fall of 2007 and have been working on my prerequisites since then. I applied to the Utah College of Dental Hygiene in July of 2008. I was called back for an interview, which took place last Friday. I went into the interview with low expectations; this field is very competitive and many girls apply several times to be accepted. I also knew that once the interview was over, it would be a month to three months before I knew if I had been accepted or not. The interview went well, I met with the two deans of the school and they asked me a ton of questions. I felt like the interview was going really well. After two hours of interviewing, it was time to go home. As I gathered my stuff together, the head of admissions stopped me, told me they were impressed and didn't want to make me wait any longer, and then she handed me an acceptance letter!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am so happy, SO relieved, grateful, nervous, and about a billion other things. I've been waiting for that letter for 2 years, and I finally got it. THE END
