Whoa whoa whoa whoa ... WUSL did something besides send jumk mail???
Numbers? Were you EA?
My application went complete at WUSL the first week of December and was given a fee-waiver. Since that time I have received four emails inviting me to apply to the program and offering me a fee-waiver. I have also received two invitations to apply in the mail and numerous other little cards that I just throw away. I finally emailed the admissions office yesterday and asked them to stop sending this stuff. They were very apologetic and weren’t quite sure why I was getting all the crap and asked me to send it back to them so they could determine why I was getting it? I assume they want it back so they can send it off to someone else.
They asked you to send it back? Sometimes that school is so odd...
Their words exactly: "We will look in to why you are still receiving application mailings from us and try to correct it as soon as possible. We are concerned why you are receiving this mail from us, so if you could please forward them back to us it will help us correct the problem. Once again, we are sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused."
Not only am I not sending that crap back, but I'm going to send them another email requesting that someone edit the messges sent out by the Admissions Dept.
