Two days, Two mails.
Sometimes I think Chicago is a lot like me. They seem to be very laid-back about 'important' things such as visa documentation, financial aid etcetera. While admits to other schools were getting their I20's a month earlier, our budget wasn't ever finalized. I am reading about others submitting their loan applications, while our office didn't even have the paperwork printed to be mailed. Not that it bothers me much, kinda suits my pace actually :-)
Finally, things have taken a few steps forward. Yesterday, I got the loan application for internationals. And this morning, my I-20. Now, more forms to fill. Documents prepared. Visas gotten. Fun stuff.
