so sad......

So, as you may know I did not get into George Mason's nursing program. I went to talk to the admissions person yesterday and she basically told me that I obviously am very smart and would do well in the program, but they've had problems with researchers in the past and they have no desire to train nurses who do not want to work in a hospital.

I was very sad yesterday, and a little blue this morning, but I just saw this story on the news about this man whose pregnant wife is in a coma and he is keeping her alive only to save the baby. Needless to say, that gave me the perspective I needed and I'm not sad anymore, just dissapointed.

So, the new plan of action. Apply to Marymount and Georgetown, but dear God, say that I want to work in a hospital. Marymount feels that I should be able to go there in the fall, but I don't know if the timing will really work out. Georgetown has people entering in the spring semester, which is doable, but way more expensive.

I'm also going to try to find a new job--assuming that none of these schools work out and I end up working. So, my resume is being updated, and I hope to not be working in my current job for more than 6 months.
