    title says it all! How are you guys keeping yourself sane between your interview and when you MIGHT hear back. Or even until you get an interview invite. My job has so much free time that it's hard not to keep my mind off of med school haha. So I want to know what you folks are up to on your free time!

      its certainly hard to not think about it, especially since I am no longer in college. I have become so neurotic about checking my email, but what I've found myself doing is focusing on my family and my friends. I have been reaching out to old friends from high school and relatives that I may not have spoken to that recently, just to say hi and catch up, and I've found that to be relatively time-consuming, but in a way that leaves me feeling happy and positive (instead of stressed and drowning in an ocean of nerves and self-pity haha)

        This will sound tacky but, it is all part of the journey. We all played the game of life as a child, becoming a doctor was the best outcome. Unfortunately we don't get to do so on a roll. If it doesn't happen this year, there is always another that follows for those who are sincere. Good luck and enjoy the journey, after all that's what counts.

          Weirdly, I'm grateful for school as a distraction. The first time I applied, I had a boring job and way too much time to (over)think about everything. I never thought I would be happy to be so busy with studying that sometimes I forget I'm in on-hold hell.
