Congratulations, Manny! Your Sabumnim wouldn't have made the offer if he didn't think you were up to the challenge.

Keep a level head and you should be fine. They wouldn't ask if they didn't think you could handle it.

For me will be a BIG achievement and let tell why.

When I was a teen and got inside Karate Koreano (Korean Karate) my BIG dream was to get a black belt, in those days I didin't knew there were DAN grades, for me a Black Blet was the ultimate goal. When I reached 20 years old I got my Black Belt and thought... well mission acomplished. In 2007 when I returned to TKD my intention was to get fit and that's all then I realice I need to go for the second dan.

Today as you mentioned Third dan is for me an achievement, not so much grown men get a third dan in a martial art, and I am talking about the regular guy, you know the one with family a mortage to pay and a full job that leave almost cero time to train.

I will go for it and will do my best.
