I just received my clinical year schedule! I got both of the electives that I requested - Exotic and Wildlife Medicine & Surgery, and Laboratory Animal Medicine.
I have 12 weeks open to schedule externships. I already have three in mind, and I'm working on organizing letters of recommendation, transcripts, and letters of intent. One of them is with Dr. Goodwin in Texas, which I know I'm pretty much going to get from email contact with him. The other two I actually might be denied, as they're pretty fancy. One of them is at a very prestigious school and only 14 people have completed it in 10 years. I don't wanna jinx myself by talking about it too much, but getting it would be a capital letters Big Deal.
