Has anyone else resorted to checking their phone, e-mail, mail, and refreshing SDN as they await decisions that they thought would come a few days ago? Just wondering.

Gmail notifier, seriously. It actually notifies you before the new message is in the inbox.

AOL sucks. Your mail gets deleted if you don't save it and the space is very limited. It has a bulky interface and takes a long time to load. Gmail is awesome. It saves everything, you'll never have to delete anything because it gives you i think 2Gigs of space. It keeps everything organized. I would lose track of all schools' correspondence if it wasn't for gmail. It notifies you of new mail even if you don't have gmail open if you download the notifier to your computer. It's very light and easy to use. I totally recommend it. Let me know if you need an invite (i think they still use invites).

Apparition, I tried to send you a PM with my e-mail address so you can send me an invite, but it says you are over your limit and need to delete some PM's before you can receive any more.

you're not a true SDN applicant unless you compulsively check mail, phone and email 300000000 times a day.
