Spiff and I finalized the ol' rank list yesterday, submitted it to the authorities, and decided not to tweak it or worry about it anymore. Not a moment too soon, either, since it is due by tonight. Here are the top six:
1. Mayo in Rochester, MN
2. University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI
3. Dartmouth, Hanover, NH
4. Wash U, St. Louis
5. University of Utah
6. University of Wisconsin, Madison, WI
There are several more programs on the list, but we're hoping for at least somewhere in the top six. There are also transition year programs ranked, and it is very possible that we will be in one city for a year and another city for the remaining three years of anesthesia. There has been a lot of thought and prayer that went into ranking these programs, and we're trusting the Lord that we will be where our family needs to be for the next four years. Three weeks until Match Day sounds like a long wait.
