Today at 4:30 I meet with Renee of Minimed / Medtronic to get fitted with a 72 hour CGMS . Dr. Baker is really into getting all available information about a patient to give them the best care possible. That's exactly the way I believe this disease needs to be managed. So around 5 pm today I'll be hooked up to the 72 hour monitoring system and will then know exactly how my blood sugars moved over that period - this should be a huge help with training and everyday life. I'm really interested to see how my blood sugar reacts to the heart rate test I have on my bike this evening.
In other news I had my interview with the Darden MBA program at UVA yesterday. This year Darden changed their policy of open interviews to invite only so receiving an invitation to interview was a huge step in the process. Normally I come out of interviews feeling like I 100% sold myself to the best of my ability. I wish I could say the same for yesterday, I brought out almost all the points I wanted to but still feel like I left something on the table. Now the long wait until February 1st when decisions are released begins. The format of the interview is open - the only question the interviewer asks is "I want to hear your story from the time you were a child to your decision to apply to Darden ," then you go off and try and sell yourself.
