    That's right, I'm bored with the waiting game. Not waiting for interviews or acceptances -- but waiting to take the DAT and turn in my AADSAS this June.

    I suppose that patience is a virtue, but I'm extremely antsy to begin the admissions process. The coolest thing I have to look forward to at the moment is my predental committee interview in early March.

    Anybody else ready to get the show on the road?

    It's Gavin C,

    Get PUMPED UP!!! That's the way!!! Tell 'em how it is!!! You know, you can always move up the DAT testing date if you feel like you're ready for the SUCKA!!!! Good luck! Oh yes, during your interview with you Pre-Health Science Committee, if you get stuck or unsure on a certain questions, then just drop your pants and stick your arms out wide and say "What you got for me? What? What?"!! <img border="0" alt="[Laughy]" title="" src="graemlins/laughy.gif" />

    The waiting is the worst part about it. I would download the old AADSAS app and fill that out to be sure that you have all of your information so you can get the lowest AADSAS # that you can. I would also start to work on your essay. Play with it and come up with some diffrent approaches. Bounce them off people you respect and see what they say. The essay is a killer for alot of people, you sit and think, "Oh, I can write an essay about myself." but then when you start to write it you get two words into it and blank out. Or you read it again and you make yourself sound like Superman/woman. Also, make sure that your letters of rec and/or your comittie letters are ready or at least underway.

    and match all your courses with the proper numbers listed for AADSAS. Also check the schools that you will apply to and find out what you need to send them and when. Call the school and ask if they will be visiting your school or a school near you so you can meet then someone from the admissions department.

    If you run out of things to do after all of that, start double checking things. The worst thing is after you think you got everything done right and one little detail bites you in the $%#. The devil is in the details so work them out ahead of time.
