I got the following email from Miami-Dade College:
MDC: Nursing Admission Accelerated Option – Congratulations!!!
Dear DANIEL PEREZ,
Congratulations on your provisional acceptance to the January 2012, Accelerated Nursing Option. I am pleased that you have chosen Miami Dade College – School of Nursing to further your nursing career. While enrolled in the program, it is my desire that your educational experience be a rewarding and successful one.
I look forward to seeing you at orientation.

I got the email yesterday afternoon while I was stuck in traffic and I couldn’t believe it when I read it. Then I started hollering and dancing in my car, which prompted strange looks from those around me. Then I spoke to my wife and grandparents, and sent a few text messages to my siblings and close friends who have been following this odyssey.
I am stunned with amazement and happiness. I have two weeks to take care of a long list of items they require in order for the acceptance into the program to be permanent, but I’ve already started to get the ball rolling.
This is happening. Finally.
