TAU: yes (and hmm)
TAU sent me a letter saying my application to the Classical Studies and General Literature Theory departments has been accepted. They offer me the opportunity to give them money. They also point out that I am accepted probationally, the condition being that I achieve a "mediocre or better" grade in a mandatory English Language course I will be made to take on my first semester.

Apparently, they are not sufficiently impressed by my verbal SAT score to exempt me from the English course. It would be a complete waste of time, I suspect. I think I'll give 'em a call and try to talk them out of it.

Current Mood: amused

their really doing their best at ignoring reason and sticking to the silly bureaucracy.

It's nice to here that you haven’t lost your patience with them.


Joy.

non-negotiable

This irritation of a course is something TAU just won't give up. Never found out why, but I, too, had to pass that course.

After three lessons the lecturer told me to leave, said I'll get a 100.

Out of politeness, I stayed.

Got a 98.

Should have left.
