Nice!   What field will he be in?

 We got our info in December because the military match is a little different.  But we only found out a few weeks ago that his orientation starts the Monday after the wedding, thus messing up honeymoon plans   (He’ll be in ENT.)

Congratulations! My fiance is a programmer at a medical school, but on match day his job is to man the fax machine to help all the med students who didn’t get matches that are frantically looking for places to take them. So I know it’s a big deal! Congrats on getting your first choice!!

This is so neat to hear about all the other people anticipating match day last week. We got our first pick, Cincinnati here we come! Living in Iowa my whole life I am looking forward to something different.

Hehe this is fun =)  We’re actually going to do a pre-moon (?) instead, since he’s got three weeks between graduation and the wedding, so we’ll take a week off in there.  We guessed right about when it would start, but not the three weeks(!) of orientation.

 We were worried about the match, because if he didn’t get his/our first choice (Walter Reed, DC), the other options were WA, HI, and TX.  Which would really suck since I’m still going to be in school here in VA.  So yeah, very happy

 cricketpe, I’ve known several people who went through the scramble.  It’s a huge mess… keeping the fax machine in order has got to be high pressure!

 Good luck with moving, everyone!

Ooh I just went through this a couple of weeks ago,  my Fiance is a 4th year Med student,  the canadian match date was March 6th.   It’s such a relief to finally know where we are going to go.   We currently live in City A, we are now moving to City B (he starts July 1st) and the wedding is June 21st in City C.    Talk about a lot of things going on.

Congratulations!  I remember that day a long time ago.  I’m actually finishing my EM residency this year.  My only advice—relax until you start.  No one knows anything when they start so enjoy yourself b/c intern year will stink.  Good luck to all those brides getting married b/w med school and residency.

fortunately (or unfortunately), i wasn’t together yet with my Fiance for his match day but i started dating him about 6 months into his 5 year surgical residency.  good luck to all the brides with FIs in medicine.  It’s an exciting (but tough) journey!  I still have another year left… its like neverending…….
