    Scheduling Interview in 2 days or 4 weeks?

    Tools for Scheduling Interviews

    I'm using Gmail and Google Calendar right now, but it seems a little overwhelming being attached to my phone 24/7 (or at least during working hours on weekdays), especially when I'm on interviews. Is there an app or program or something to help with this?

    Taking MCAT January 2018, lots of questions about studying
