[Current Mood |excitedexcited]

I sent off that last document to Toronto on January 9th.

I checked both the UK and Canadian Post Office sites to track it, and it arrived in Canada January 10th.

I sent an e-mail yesterday to the woman I'd been in conversation with before, asking if they had received it.

Guess when it got there?

This morning.

Now, I understand the weather's been bad there, but... c'mon. 12 days from the time it arrived in Canada???

But they did accept it; I got an e-mail: This notice is being sent to inform you that all of the required documents for your
application to 'MA-Medieval Studies (1 Year)' have successfully been received. If
you log into the SGS system, you will see that your application is now pending a
decision.


I'm officially a candidate for admission now!

Seriously, do not underestimate the awesome delaying power of the University of Toronto bureaucracy when it comes to the movement of mail within the university system. I know me=applied last year to the history department and you=applying this year to the CMS, but I got my decision March 27th - but the letters were dated something like the 10th. And I was five hours' drive from Toronto in upstate New York at the time.
