Just as the title would suggest, I’m a filthy college drop out.
I started in UCD last week and, 3 days in, decided to withdraw from my course. Which was the 6 Year Medicine degree.
I handed back my student card and decided I’d never set foot in the place again. UCD and I are sooooo over.
SEE Y’AFTERZ LUV.
I moved up from the shticks to my lovely Appartment on the UCD Campus on Tuesday and started Orientation the following day. I was having a ball of a time there. Loved it. Myself and the student bar really hit it off.
On Friday, I moved all my stuff back out.
I’m sure most of you are wondering what the hell I was thinking. I repeat, dead set on getting Medicine and, after lots of bother, finally manage to get it, one year later than expected. Then I drop out!?
Well, basically, what happened is this.
I woke up bright and early Thursday morning, got dressed and set to go into my Academic Advisory lectures in UCD, when I got a phonecall from a number I didn’t know.
Guess who it was?
Trinity Admissions office.
Guess what they were offering me?
The 5 Year course in Medicine over there.
Guess what I did?
Jumped up and and down excitedly, before accepting my THIRD ROUND, RANDOM SELECTION CAO offer the following morning.
I dropped on out’a UCD and started calling myself a Trinity student.
It’s been a few days since I got the offer and I’m still somewhat in disbelief. Like, this doesn’t happen all too often.
Although, astoundingly, it also happened to a very good friend of mine last year.
I was loving UCD, it’s a great place altogether, and the craic is mighty, but I couldn’t resist Trinity. I mean, the course is a year shorter and it’s what I truly wanted. And I got it on Third Round offers. FATE.
So basically, I’m now a winner. A Trinner Winner. Life is good.
This will certainly be a final post from me, the LC and all that’s related to it is well and truly over.
Moral of the story though- Thank God I repeated. It’s a wee bit later than I’d hoped for, but I’m officially where I want to be, doing what I want to do.
Good luck class of 2010!
I’m so unbelievably fluky! I got bumped up on my Biology recheck to an A1. 575 points- hello!
