It was a sight to see -- shouts of joy from medical students at the University or Rochester after wrapping up four years of hard work.
It's not graduation – it’s “match day” -- the day fourth-year medical students across the country find out where they'll be matched for the next few years of their lives as resident doctors.
Two friends told News 10NBC they hoped to be in the same city for their residencies. The two women grew up in the Rochester area and it was always their dream to go medical school at the U of R.
They met before orientation and spent the next four years together but everyone could feel the tension in the room as they and more than a hundred of their classmates waited to hear their fate today.
It's a safe bet most of the medical students were feeling the same emotions as they waited for the clock to strike 12.
