On a positive note the tone of their correspondence seemed very confident. They said I should be getting the proper paper work for my visa in two weeks, which leads me to believe they see no reason why Uncle Sam shouldn't give me the exorbitant amount of money I requested. Keep your fingers crossed people! (Or thumbs pressed if you are of the Deutschie variety. I wonder what other good luck things exist in other cultures?)
Oh and also, this weekend I received a letter in the mail from Uncle Sam, himself, that went a little something like this:
We have reviewed your evil evil credit report and are super-happy to tell you that you qualify for a Direct PLUS loan (the one you were oh so scared of because we were going to check your evil evil credit report and might make you have someone else sign in blood to vouch for your worthiness).
Your school also knows we approved you and your evil evil credit report, though this still does not guarantee you will receive aforementioned scary-but-oh-so-desperately-needed loan. The school will tell you the final future-determining decision on your wonderfully-filled-out application. If your school wants our money and decides to offer you scary-but-needed loan, you'll receive more info. (Duh!)
Your Master and Chief, Obama-son.
Rock on Uncle Sam. This here letter gives me oh so much hope but I am scared to get too excited just yet until I get the official signed, sealed, and delivered word on my fate. So, again, please, pray to whatever god, goddess, demon, deity, earthly being, whatever to which you pray!!! I'll send cookies, if you do!
