is it safe to assume that were not gonna be hearing much from medical schools for the next two weeks? i guess it might be better to expect nothing than to go crazy hoping to hear something

I know that some schools (such as NYMC) are offering interviews on December 22nd/23rd, so it is conceivable that their admissions offices will be open that day and that they might be processing applications/sending out news.

This is just speculation, however, so take it with a grain of salt and stick with your assumption to be on the safe side.

Maybe the forums will be less neurotic for the holiday season. hehehehe

Hopefully. Unfortunately the neuroticism of my family will be the opposite trend during the holidays. Bracing myself already..

I think I become more neurotic everytime there is a break. Knowing that my application is lying somewhere in a dark cubicle gathering dust instead of being reviewed by some adcom member is enough to drive me bonkers! :D

My parents ask me 'any emails?' at least 3 times a day. Not cool.

So, should I wait until after the holidays to send in grade updates?

I am wondering if sending them tomorrow will put them at risk of being ignored/quickly set aside.

I'm waiting until January. My fear is that some mail worker will drop them off into a giant pile of update letters, they will fall in a crack between the desk and the wall, and will never be read. Or if I send it in email, then it will take the person 2 weeks just to get through their inbox.
