In other news, things are not going so well on the bid for further universe domination.
Applications that rely on computers suck!
The transcripts that I ordered and paid for as part of the online application haven't been sent yet, even though the order supposedly went through back in the middle of September.
I just found out today that the department I am applying to doesn't have the reference that my advisor completed back in September, a reference that turns up as completed on the thing I can check online. And the other reference which hasn't been completed yet might not have even been sent out yet because there has been some kind of computer glitch with the system.
Even though these problems are with their system, they will consider my application late if they don't get everything by the end of the month, which means I get put on the waiting list.
