More HUJI Uncertainty

Another letter from HUJI -- I have been officially accepted to the Classical Studies Dept., i.e. they ask me to make the down payment. The same letter mentioned that as regards my Literature Dept. application, a decision cannot be reached, as my psychometric exam results are still missing.

I wonder, could it be that my letter of appeal (requesting that they take my SAT scores instead of asking me to take the Israeli exam) has been read only by the Classical Studies folks? Or are the Lit folks just taking their time? But if so, why couldn't they write something like "we're still reviewing your appeal"? Because the university is an impersonal bureaucracy?

Oh well. Still no word from TAU. Bah.
