So...how many times/day do you check your email?

I used to think that getting snail mail news/acceptances would be far worse than email, but this is getting ridiculous...seriously...

It seems like I check at least 15 times/day or so...in part because one school (and one of my only MD schools that I applied to) gave me an interview invite 7:30pm on a Saturday. This is about as bad as the lull between sitting and receiving mcat scores...um..almost...

Anyone else?

Outlook checks mine every 5 minutes, but I'm not really waiting for an acceptance, but I'm constantly emailing for some reason. I think it keeps me from having to pay attention or study.
