Congratulations, Mark!

Mark took his GRE exam yesterday and did amazing on it! (I knew he would!) It's not a pass/fail test, but he had a score in mind that he needed to get in order to be competitive for or get into anesthesia school. Well, he blew that score away, and coupled with a 4.0 GPA for his bachelor's nursing courses, any anesthesia school in the country should be happy to get him. We'll now need to make some decisions and start the application process. I know that this post will probably stroke Mark's ego, but he deserves it after all of his hard work and preparation for this!

*Side story* The GRE is for graduate school, not to be confused with the GED. A sweet library employee that Mark befriended the last few weeks while studying there was always so supportive and impressed that he was going back for his GED. She would tell him that, "It's the minimum that society accepts today." She didn't get his one gentle correction that the test was for graduate school, not his diploma. Oh well... Either way, she'll be very proud of him next time he sees her! :)

Congratulations! I guess mostly to him but to you as well - that's very exciting.

As for that library lady - I imagine she'll be quite happy for him indeed!
