    Alcohol and distracting yourself, go do something - anything! - so you're not staring at your phone/emails.

    I think the worst thing I could have done when I was waiting for SA and FT offers was read this site. Somehow 90% of people on here heard back one way or another within like 3 days. I don't think that has ever happened to me, including from BB. So just sit tight and don't worry if it takes a week or two to hear back.

    If you live in NYC and are of age, go to Barcade and just fuckin play Frogger and drink beers until forever.

    Remember, once you're inside you're on your own.
    Oh, you mean I can't count on you?
