Keeping it together while waiting for May 8th?

Recommended Posts

Anyone have any good tips on how to keep it together while waiting?  Mac is the only school I applied (non-science background, low GPA), but I find the prospect of this next week super daunting.  I just want to know!

I try to distract myself the best I can. 

Exercising has been helping me distress. Go for walks with my dog. Spend time with family. Binge on tv shows and Netflix. Working full-time also helps take my mind off things.

I also read non-trad stories and the accepted/waitlist/rejected list for hope and motivation.

Just under 8 days to go, hang in there buddy :)!

Yeah agreed with @Butterfly_

Just keep yourself busy with activities that you like. Go have a drink or two with friends, plan a board game night, go watch the new Avengers movie...

If you work full-time, then focus on that. It's a waste to put so much brain power into something you have no control over. Thinking about it 24/7 doesn't change the outcome!
