i don't know what to do with myself. the last few years of my life have been bent on trying to fix my transcript (it was REALLY bad, and still sort of is) and then studying my ass off for the mcat (which came out real skewed) and then worrying constantly about my PS and about primaries and then secondaries. and then now silence. nothing. i'm used to being really stressed out or having way too much to do. now all i do is wait. i feel like i ought to be doing something that will help the process just keep moving. but i have gleaned from these threads that letters of intent are usually sent out in february. question is, is there anything we can do to keep the ball rolling? is there nothing we can do but wait? shall we call and pester the adcom offices? this isn't even a "what do i do with my free time" sort of question. i'm already doing other things but they're things not related to trying to get into med school. and it sucks that we can really go and travel since we are low on cash or waiting for a response. how can we go to prague if we spent all our money on apps or if we could possibly miss a snail mail response from a school?
