I cracked up when I saw this thread! I, too, wondered what to do once I completed GMAT and apps.

1) Actually cooking again instead of eating out all the time.
2) Resuming my workouts. I'd like to hit my goal (and lose the 7 GMAT lbs) before we start school. I'm about halfway to goal now, so it's doable.
3) Getting active in my new church. (For the remaining 7 months months that I'm in town. Lol.)
4) Family time--trying to spend more time with them since I'll have to relocate for school.
5) Doing calls with faculty and students at the schools to research programs & opportunities further.
6) Round 2 campus visits - visiting campus again either for interviews or class visits.
7) MOVIES - finally, I'm able to watch movies once again! Haven't been to the theatre in so long. Just now getting caught on DVDs that I purchased last year.

MikeBolton mentioned a great activity: Researching pre-MBA internships opportunities.

Aside from traditional internship opportunities, part-time volunteerism can be considered a great pre-MBA activity to build your resume and gain additional leadership skills. In particular, volunteer business consulting for a small business or non-profit can be a great pre-MBA experience.

If such an activity interests you, do consider researching organizations like SCORE, Net Impact, USALC, or Taproot. Each of these groups facilitate volunteer consulting projects that can add value to your future MBA.

1. Training for a half marathon in March (already ran 2 marathons in the past) but application season has me desperately out of shape.
2. Weekend Brunch instead of Weekend Essay writing.
3. Being able to run errands without rushing home to study for the GMAT/fine-tune essays.

Waitlist stuff too, but that's nominal compared to the 10+ applications.

Waking up on the first weekend that I haven't had mapped out time for GMAT or essay prep in months... was about to start a post-partum depression thread and decided to piggy back on this. While I still have to spend a lot of time prepping for interviews, it certainly feels weird to have this much free time back!

1. I am involved with a dance company outside of work (both artistically and as volunteer staff for the business side of things) and we have a concert in March that will keep me busy, and hopefully distracted, while waiting for the final decisions.
2. Spending time with my friends, family, significant other. Although I have been told "wow, you are so dedicated" countless times the past year, I have felt like a jerk missing a lot of small get togethers with friends on the week nights when I had to study/write/prep, etc.
3. READING FOR PLEASURE. I haven't read a good non-business school or business related book since the summer. I can't wait to escape into some sort of weird sci-fi world or historical piece.
4. Annoying my significant other/friends with mock interviews.

So glad I went Early Decision. My stress stopped in mid-October! Now I'm unemployed and trying to figure out what to do with myself for the next 6 months until business school.
