Former St Joseph’s College student Jason Clymo will accept his first-round offer to study medicine at Monash University in Melbourne.
It is the first stage of having his childhood dream of being a doctor realised.
‘‘At first I was like, ‘Wow, okay that’s really awesome’,’’ Mr Clymo said.
‘‘When I was little it was a dream
Mr Clymo said many of his fellow former-students were ‘‘anticipating it (offers) nervously’’.
He said he was not as nervous as he might have been yesterday had he not been offered a place to study medicine at a Townsville university on the weekend.
‘‘I wasn’t actually that nervous
‘‘That was when I felt relieved because I knew I was going to do medicine and become a doctor.’’
He said he would accept his offer at Monash University because it was a year less than the other course and it was closer to home.
Mr Clymo was one of 30 people in Victoria who were offered an extended rural cohort placement in the course.
The placement will give him the opportunity to do most of his clinical training in rural and regional locations in north-west Victoria.
It is a five-year course.
Former Echuca College student Jaklyn Crilly, 18, also received a first-round study offer yesterday, which she will refuse in favour of an early-round offer she received on January 3.
Miss Crilly, who was the dux of her year level, was yesterday offered a Bachelor of Science degree at Melbourne University.
She already had an early-round offer for the Australian National University to study a Bachelor of Science.
Miss Crilly will move to Canberra on February 9 for the course and said she was nervous and excited.
Her course is four years long, which includes an honours year.
She hopes to be an astrophysicist.
This week Miss Crilly spoke with her friends who were also expecting offers and said she ‘‘hoped they’d got into the course they chose’’.
