    So I got accepted via e-mail. I was absolutely ecstatic. But now my paranoid self can't stop thinking, "what if it's all a mistake?" They sent my letter out on the 16th so I figured it would be here today, but it's not. What if I wasn't really accepted?

    Has anyone else gotten the actual acceptance packet? I am so scared. :eek: :scared:

    What if this post isn't real? What if...

    "The Matrix is a system, Neo. That system is our enemy. But when you're inside, you look around, what do you see? Businessmen, teachers, lawyers, carpenters. The very minds of the people we are trying to save. But until we do, these people are still a part of that system and that makes them our enemy. You have to understand, most of these people are not ready to be unplugged. And many of them are so inured, so hopelessly dependent on the system, that they will fight to protect it. "

    I don't think I'll be able to until I have the actual letter in my hand.

    you have a rough life ahead of you. but it'll likely be a short one, if that's any consolation.

    I know. I think I'm going to go into psychiatry at this point to see if I can cure my anxiety. Life's funny, isn't it? Do you really think I was accepted though? I mean, God, wouldn't it suck if I wasn't. The e-mail had my name on it and everything so I guess that's a really good sign, but still; the drama, the drama. My parents have told everyone they know; it would be so embarassing if it was all a mistake.

    i was just going to ask if the email had your name. since it did, what are the odds of it being a mistake? they'd have to screw up both the email address and the name in the same email, which isn't going to happen. so, you got in. it's the holiday season, and mail is running at least a day behind, so probably why you haven't gotten it yet. the other option is that they didn't get it out on the 16th because they got swamped with other things. either way, you're still fine.

    When in doubt of acceptance, write your AMCAS ID XXXXXXXX in clear, bold ink on your butt (some assistance and supervision required), proceed to walk into the admissions office, bend over with your rear facing them, pull your pants down, gently sway your butt from side to side while humming "I love candy". Any disillusionment regarding said acceptance will soon be dispelled.

    Note: This activity is also recommended for those with an acceptance but has a bone against schools that have rejected them.

    Now, get off SDN and enjoy your time before med school, you crazy bastard.
     
  12. You are the reason people hate pre-meds. It is all your fault.

    The people who really get to worry about this are those who get accepted on April 1st (Someone will).

    I may be paranoid but I'm not THAT paranoid... I assume my acceptances are real but that my check holding my place in the class will get lost in the mail, etc. :)

    HAHAHA. Though everyone is making fun of you, I felt the same way. Be reassured though. Got my real acceptance letter today. It'll come, just depends where you live.

    Blame it on the holiday shipping rush! I ordered a package with 2-day air shipping on the 14th, and I just got it today, the 19th. If they rush-delivered your acceptance letter than it would still take a few days to arrive, as well.

    Relax :)
