    I'd like to take a poll to see how stressed out you are about interviewing and subsequently matching. All this during holiday season to boot! Are you starving yourself? Beating your kids? (IM KIDDING HERE PEOPLE) Taking xanax? Or ready to jump? :scared: Just thought I would see if psych interviewing is any less stressful especially since everyone says its the "less competitive" field.

    Plus I want to see if my poll option works ;)

    I'm more stressed about all of the traveling and the ensuing hassle than matching. I would prefer not to spend any more nights sleeping in airports.

    But that may change when it comes time to come up with my ROL...

    Yeah, I agree too - I'm pretty stressed out over the traveling aspect as well - (Delta, its haunting me Hurricane!) but I admit, since I found my number one - I'm like a little school girl waiting for them to write me a note to tell me they like me :oops: dumb! Maybe I should send them note saying "Do you like me? Please check the box" - and give em that yes/no option at the bottom :laugh:

    I was really getting stressed out earlier in the week. However, I made out a list yesterday and it really became quite clear which program would be best for me at this point. I still have three interviews left -- I cancelled Yale -- and I'm sure that they will make this process more confusing; fortunately, I really think that taking a very analytical approach will help me to keep the process in perspective.

    I'm on interview 8, and I'd like to change my vote to "about to jump" :oops: All this traveling is getting to me and I'm starting to get agitated with the whole thing. I miss my bed, and since I know for sure who I'm ranking first, these are all just backups so its becoming painful at this point.

    I'm seriously considering using the ROL I would have now and calling it a day - I don't know that I'm going to make it through 3 more :scared:
