Ok, beside checking your emails and schools' app system for your app status, what are some other stuff - meaningful or otherwise - that you are doing?
I'm currently attending lectures for an econometric modeling class. Not sure how relevant it would be for the PhD program, but I thought it might be useful to get back the "feel" of studying after being away from school for the last 6 years. Would have loved to attend the lecture for one other class, but my work schedule doesn't allow me to.
I'm also thinking of going through some of my old textbooks and reading more research papers.
Apart from these, I hope to set aside some time for other personal and leisure stuff. (Just came back from a nice holiday trip with my wife and daughter.) After the close of the application process and a research project that I was working on, I suddenly feel that I have more time in hand.
