    As I look over all of the posts in the Pre-Osteopathic forum I am fondly reminded of feeling the same anxiety/excitement about waiting for MCAT scores and working on the applications. I really don't miss any of that anxiety whatsoever. I will admit, though, that getting the call saying that I had been accepted to my 1st choice school was probably the most exciting day of my life up to that point. Now, however there is a new type of anxiety; one of excitement, anticipation, nervousness, and not knowing exactly what to expect. And then I see those people who are on waiting lists and although I don't feel their pain I can only imagine what it would be like to wake up each morning hoping that you will hear something. But to those of you applying, or those of you on waitlists, be patient. If this is truly what you want to do, it WILL happen. Be persistence and never give up. A very wiser person once told me that if medicine is truly what you want to do then you will try and do it until you have exhausted all of the possibilities. So hang in there. Not really sure where this post is or was going, but I was bored and thought that I would sit and the computer and provide some words of wisdom

    I am off to CCOM in the fall and I can't wait. I am so happy that the process is finally over and I can sit back and relax for a couple of months before the real fun starts.

    DOcjoshua,

    I may not be going to an Osteopathic school, but I feel the same way! I think that all of us in the class of 2006, regardless of school, are taking a collective sigh of relief!

    Making a peanut butter and jelly sandwich can be a difficult, but rewarding experience. Make sure you prepare all the appropriate ingredients before you get started:
    Bread, Peanut Butter, and Jelly (assorted varieties available). Don't forget to have a knife on hand, or you could get yourself into a sticky situation! Place peanut butter (using your trusty knife) on one slice of bread. Place jelly on another slice of bread. Bring the two slices together, making sure that both the peanut butter and jelly end up on the inside of your bread "sandwich". Deposit the sandwich on a plate or paper towel and presto! . . . you've made a delicious and nutritious treat!

    I actually, miss the adrenaline rush that I felt, during the MCAT, application process, Interview, the wait. Now all I do is sit and wait and try to figure out how the next four years of my life will be like. I really Thanks Heavens for my acceptance. GOOD LUCK TO ALL THOSE ON WAITING LIST.

    Dr. Maxy,
    I agree with you on the fact about the adrenaline rush. I was just thinking the other day how much I miss just being extremely busy with all the applications and such. Ever since I have been accepted I have felt a great deal of relief, but at the same time miss being that busy. I guess I just have to find other things to keep me busy. Maybe I could make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. That seems like it may be an unbelievable and rewarding project. <img border="0" alt="[Laughy]" title="" src="graemlins/laughy.gif" /> Later

    My mom doesn't live close to me so maybe I could borrow yours since you seem to already know how to do it well. I really don't know where the PBJ reference came into this whole discussion, but it really is juvenile.

    DOcjoshua,
    I completely understand what you guys are going through. I worked througout undergrad,and I worked 54 hours a week during my entire senior year. So I was always busy with school, work and research projects.
    But now, my current job doesn't keep me busy enough. Hence I decided to write a book about my commercial salmon fishing adventures on the Gulf of Alaska. However, I have pieces of the story written, but don't have the motivation to put all together or continue. All I do is think about med school, and the journey ahead.
    Well, since the book was not coming along, I decided to design a web page for myself. After that, I was still bored then I decided to design another web page for past students of my high school, which I have completed. Now I'm looking for new stuff to keep me busy.
    Maybe I will strat making some Peanut Butter and jelly sandwiches as well.
