I work full-time so that helps keep my mind off of stuff. But I do read way too much SDN and check email too often at work. If SDN stresses you out then cut back on that....

I work out, cook, try to hang out with friends as much as possible after work, go places on weekends, to keep my mind off of admissions decisions. Just remember it will be over soon and then we can move on with our lives. I know I am really ready to be done with this whole process.


I like my freedom

Hell, I feel you on the waiting for acceptance process...I think this is even worse than waiting to hear about interviews. I will be so greatful once I know what I'll be doing this coming fall, whether it's starting pharmacy school or getting ready to reapply for next year.
I find that running and focusing on schoolwork gets my mind off of things...but I'm finding it hard to focus on school because I keep thinking that I may get a letter today!
Good luck to all of those who are waiting eagerly for their acceptance letters. Just keep busy.

I think the best way to deal with the stress is to try and stay busy, which helps keep your mind off the admissions process. The waiting really does suck! Hopefully you'll have good news soon!

Good luck!:)
