[Dean Learman]: This is our first Match Day in three years that we have guests, family members.
[Parth Vaidya]: It's an incredible experience. Nothing will beat having that moment in person with your friends and your family and all who supported you throughout this entire journey. And so I'm so happy. That we were able to be back in person this year.
[Aryo Sorayya]: Feeling good, feeling good!

[Aubrey Knight]: I'm ready to party like it's 1920.
[Brandon Temel]: It's a little bit more anxiety, you know, hoping you get what you want, that your partner's getting what they want, and together.
[Michaela Pesce]: Yea, so we both screamed and then looked at the other person's envelope.
[Brandon]: Just to make sure they were screaming also. And thankfully at the end we matched up with the place that we wanted to be most and that's, that's where we matched. So couldn't be happier.
[Michaela]: We're very lucky!

[Jacob Hartman-Kenzler]: I just can't say how excited I am for everyone and, you know, to have a place to be for the next stage in our careers. And it's just it feels like it feels like the culminating point to so much hard work to be able to share this with all. Of our best friends for that from the last four years is just incredible.
