Results coming soon - How do you cope? [#permalink] New post 25 Mar 2013, 09:25
Wondering how others deal with the rest of your lives as we sit on pins and needles waiting to hear from top choices?
How do you work, eat, live...I cannot concentrate!!
Seriously - any tips?

life will be full of these moments even during after business school. getting an interview, getting a job, finalizing a deal. just have to deal and realize it's not everything even though it seems like it. have a beer or a few.

Great tip! It's important to remember that business school is not the be-all and end-all. Rest assured that you gave your applications everything you had and know that you'll be happy and successful regardless of the outcome.

In all honesty, I prayed.

I'm aware this might not apply to everyone, but it helped me. Regardless, I can tell you what doesn't help—stalking the GMAT Club thread for the school you're waiting on. Everyone loses their minds in there, so reading it close to my D-days just put me even more on edge!

I can completely commisserate! I'm on my 5th and final wait week, so I'm getting to be a pro on coping strategies. NBD.

My recommendations:

1) Power yoga (sweat it out!)
2) Plan a vacation (cruises are especially cheap recently...)
3) Read Don't Sweat the Small Stuff--and it's all small stuff by Richard Carlson (call me cheesy, but I've found it super helpful and it's a quick read to boot!)

Good luck!

Lots of exercise. HIIT specifically... simple cardio doesnt clear my mind, it gives me an opportunity to think. You need to focus on something where you can have little victories constantly IMO.

But yeah, waiting was the worst part of the process
