    Anybody have any good suggestions on how to pass these next three weeks a little easier or faster? It's hard to not think about Match day every day and not get a little stressed out, especially hearing about classmates of mine who were not so successful with the early matches. So what have you all been doing to keep the stress to a minimum?

    Going out as much as possible and drinking heavily! :D I agree, the wait is killing me as well. I could end up in one of 8 different states for residency. I wanna know where, and I wanna know now. Oh well. Just 3 more weeks from today.

    I just try not to think about the match while watching countless reruns of ER and dating shows (change of heart, the 5th wheel, blind date, Elimidate, and Shipmates just to name a few). <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" />

    Guess I should be thankful for having a full-time job!

    Can't imagine what I'd do with all the time thinking about the Match.

    You can accept a pre-match offer and then just relax and forget about the match.

    Do what you've always said you would do but were too busy to do because you were studying or on this or that rotation slavin' away at the hospital. Enjoy your life while you still have one. Can I get a hell yeah?

    Hell yeah!

    I've been on vacation (as can be seen by my many posts in the last 2 weeks) and have done very little during that 2 weeks (which is a good thing). I've been watching a lot of movies and ESPN. I figure I better do it now. The time will pass and we'll look back on it and wish it was here again. well, maybe.
