After seeing so many people got their CW invitations, I, an applicant from Europe, am so desperate now. I am kinda loosing my hopes mostly because of all the hassles associated with my applications to US universities, as half of my applications forms I sent are missing, while I cannot contact my advisor as the school is closed for holiday. Besides, I got entangled with military service issue when I had Xmas holiday in my home country. Ironically, instead of working hard on my US applications, I was and am working hard on my "application" to postpone my military service. Right now, my whole family is so troubled since I have to go back to my home country every one month, because I am now officially only a "tourist" in Europe.
The thing is, according to my natal chart (I know some astronomy), this year will be very tumultuous for me and it's predicted that I am likely to undergo a big accident. Any way, sentiment aside, generally, are US universities right now done with their evaluations of the applications they have received? because surprisingly the postal service has such a high rate of failed delivery, and I really didn't have the time to fax my forms, am I really screwed? Are they just going to reject me because they think I am not interested in them while the truth is I am in all sort of difficult situations? I am going to ask them about this, but unfortunately it's weekend now. Can somebody please help me with this before hand?
As for Olin, well, what's the difference between USPS and UPS? I assume I will get either a rejection letter via normal post or something else via USPS. How fast is USPS?
