A "real" post is imminent, but for now I leave you all with this:
Dear Ms. St. Pierre,
I'm delighted to inform you that the graduate committee has met and decided to offer you a place in the MA program in Comparative Literature. A letter confirming this will be sent to you in the near future. You can expect to receive official confirmation from the Faculty of Graduate Studies after that. The committee was very impressed with your application and we hope that you will accept this offer.
That's right, folks. My first choice of academic institutions has extended an offer of admission to me. Yay! Made my day yesterday. Heck, that offer made my day today, too!
