Happy Thursday night bloggies!!
Thank you for all your support for my interview and the sweet comments about the "boys" and us looking for a new puppy.
Thanks Bitt for even tweeting about my previous post. That was so kind of you:)
Well, the interview is over and I'm at home trying to come off the adrenalin high:) I don't like waiting games. I'm kind of impatient.Especially when it comes to finding out if my life is about to change in a HUGE way.
It went pretty well..I think. It's so hard to answer multiple questions when you only have a few minutes with each interviewer but I tried my best. I'm kind of hard on myself too but I made the decision to not spend the next week going over the interview in my head a million times and asking the what-if's as I normally would do. I may not have given the BEST answers I could (who does in a time-restricted interview?) but I still tried to be as honest and thoughtful as possible given the circumstances. I learned a lot from each interviewer and got an even greater insight into the field and what kind of person they are looking for. Hopefully it's me:)
I talked to the other interviewee's and we all felt similarly about the process - sometimes you caught yourself rambling, sometimes you were stumped for an answer, certain interviewers were easier than others, and sometimes you wished you were on a beach in Hawaii (okay maybe this last one was only me).
The questions were pretty typical of interviews except I expected more to be based directly on my application. Live and learn. There were a lot of hypothetical situation questions, questions on stress management, sustainability, course load, and of course the biggest question "Why do you want to become a naturopathic doctor."
I find out either way in a week or so. Talk about pins and needles!!! I'm going to be glued to my phone during business hours and anyone wanting to talk more than a minute will have to call back after 5pm..including customers Ha! I may need to change my voicemail message!
There are three possibilities -
1. I get in - YIPEE!!
2. I don't get in - poop!!!
3. I get placed in limbo - I can get put into the "maybe" category where I have to wait it out until April to see if I get a spot. I really hope that I don't end up here. Recall the I'm-not-patient aspect.
I'm remaining positive and that's all I can do at this point! Please send some good vibes my way and maybe a time warp machine while you're at it:)
Thanks again for all your support!! I really appreciate it!
Have a great night everyone
