    At this point, is it even worth it to call schools you're still on hold at for interviews?? Drexel, Finch, Loyola?

    I would do it just for some closure. (Unless you think the "no news is good news" theory still holds. I don't think it does, but that's just me. )

    *,**, ***, ****, *****, ******, *******, ********:

    (($150,000 X 1)(0.001*******)+($150,000 X 0.012********)-((30X110)-(the intrinsic value of your year off)-(the extrinisic value of your year off (any monetary gain))-(humility factor))

    = If positive, do it....do it!
    If negative, don't do it.

    *You have no cell phone which provides long distance and a marginal toll call cost of 0$

    **Retaking the MCAT ($185) is not in the picture

    ***If "**", is true, a prep-course is unnecessary

    ****The phone calls do not disrupt your work schedule

    *****Average physicians salary is $150,000 per year at 2004 PPI

    ******Average pre-med waiting to hear back from those three schools as this statge in the game who must apply to an above average of 30 schools, at a rate of $110 per school

    *******1:10000, the likeliehood that you are successful in gaining admissions from these phone calls. I got to tell you, this is a blanket guess. Anyone feel free to provide another variable and re-run the numbers

    ********2004 inflation rate
