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.
