    Hi I just felt like posting that I feel like I am losing my patience and sanity. I hope I get in somewhere soon. 3 interviews so far and still waiting to hear back :) Anybody else in the same boat? I just wish I was in somewhere so I could relax! Test in patience I suppose....

    We're all waiting big dude!

    Find a hobby or something in the mean time.
    I sometimes take my covers off my bed and throw them all over my floor..then take my books off the shelves and organize them so that the titles make funny saying such as "The Joy of Severed Trust" and so be it. I then feel like I am doing something when I clean it up.
     
  4. scooby, you have a disease. that's such a neurotic thing. i guess these are neurotic times. for the record megkudos, i haven't gotten ONE friggin interview yet. i haven't heard a thang. so cool it...you're making me nervous. :cool:

    Caveman, nice to see you feeling so at home so soon, but I don't think you realize to whom your're speaking.....umm...posting! Scooby is a MEGA SDN personality, and whatever Scooby does is cool!!! :cool: :cool: :cool: In fact I predict of rash of bedclothes strewn on SDNer's floors and weirdly arranged bookcases!!! :D :D :D
     
  6. cool. nice to see you on this late, SMW. i thought i was the only poster whose sleeping schedule was being seriously messed up this break. yeah, i feel pretty at home. i've been reading pretty intensely for about 3 weeks since i'm so worried about my application, but i only recently began posting. yeah, i definitely realized scooby is a major player here. i might have stepped on an eggshell there, but i think he will see the humor in my comment.

    Thanks for the good ideas guys. I especially like the paper shredding one....I do have a lot of notebooks from this past semester I've been meaning to destroy...that could take a while...just what I need....

    no offense guys, but i think you should all step outside and breath some fresh air. i went skiing today and almost completely forgot about the whole app process (almost...), until my sis said to make a wish on our last run down. of course you all know what i wished. anyways, if it makes anyone feel any better, i haven't heard anything from any of my schools... no interviews, nothing. so, it could be worse. try to have some fun over break... distract yourselves. at least we'll always have sdn!

    Lotsa waiting going on here too. I applied to 25 schools - so far 8 interviews done/scheduled and heard nothing from the 17 others. No rejections at least. For others, like me, who are waiting and losing patience, I suggest sleep - it has become my new hobby. Too bad I forgot to list it on my AMCAS app. You guys think I should add it, re-submit and re-certify?! ;)

    Hmmm. I have had 1 interview so far and nothing else in the works. If you add sleep to your ec's I'll add drinking to mine. Any other good advice for vices? :D
     
  20. you guys list those, I'll list farting on my computer chair while mindlessly scanning all of the posts on SDN. ...i'm halfway through a bottle of cleareyes....

    daisy,
    I have nothing against the Bronx..I just need an excuse to make the rejection sting less. I would have said the same thing about my own town had a school here rejected me! I have never been to the Bronx but actually there is one thing about the Bronx that really bothers me...the Yankees play there! :)
     
  24. hey jargon, the schools you're waiting to hear from..are they "mid-tier" schools, or are their still some really good ones that haven't interviewed you. I'm asking because i remember reading on a thread that someone said GWU is waitlisting (not straight accepting) highly qualified applicants just yet because maybe they believe the candidates won't attend GW anyway. So i've been noticing that all of the really highly qualified candidates on this board are getting interviews to top places, but rarely to a middle level school. could it be that mid-level schools just won't waste their time with incredible applicants that won't go there anyway?? what do you think. I could be wrong about this..i hope so. i'm concerned because it would really mess me up (i applied to 30 schools, most with average acceptance stats--and i hope to be hearing from all of them).

    NYU

  26. I'll be damned Jargon!! you're LOVED in New York. I'm an August MCATer as well. I don't think I submitted my NYC secondaries right before deadlines though. Are the interviews you've received so far coming from buzzer-beating secondaries? I'm concerned cuz I applied to all those NYC schools too (i love new york city..going there for new year's).

    The secondaries I submitted right before their respective deadlines were Hopkins, U. Chicago, Northwestern, Hahvud, Baylor and UPENN. Others, including the NYC schools, were submitted relatively early. I'm sure you'll hear from some NYC schools soon - everyone is so behind this year it's almost funny. Not to be cocky ;) , but I expect (or at least I'm hoping for) lots more interviews, especially from the bigger guns. Again, good luck!
