I got in!

You are now looking at a future Registered Dietitian... I got into my graduate school program! Yay! I am SO excited! And so relieved. Before I found out I was having nightmares almost every night.

These are the flowers Sam brought home for me the day I found out I got in... isn't he just the sweetest?!

Here is how it went down. I actually found out about 2 and a half weeks ago... but I haven't really been allowed to say anything. Why you ask? So the program at the University of Utah is pretty competitive... they only take 13 new students each year (and of course this year they had more applicants than usual... around 70 or so). Well, the students they knew they wanted they accepted without any interview (I was one of them - yay!). And I found this out because the Director of the program is in my Bootcamp class and she called me and told me I got in (it has been very nice to have that connection). BUT, some of their picks that they weren't quite sure about were still being interviewed until the end of last week. So I couldn't really say anything in case any professors or other students involved found out and had not been interview/notified yet.

Anyway, I am just so excited I got in! I have so many plans and ideas for the future and now I will be able to put them into action! So it's official... beginning in August I will be a graduate student at the University of Utah, getting my Master's in Nutrition. It is a 2 year program and it will be a challenge but I am ready for it! I am ready to take on the world.
