Status of application

Woo-hoo! I just received a reply email from USC, acknowledging receipt of my application package. Of course that doesn’t assure me of a place as yet, but at least I can put the matter to rest.
You see, this is what’s been happening at home for the past month:
Two days after sending my packages via UPS
Mum: So have you heard from USC yet?
Me: Muum, I only just sent the applications off … they should be receiving it today.
[exit Mum. Enter sister Vicki]
Vicki: Jie, any news from USC?
Me: No, I only just sent the forms a couple days ago. They can’t possibly have sent me an acknowledgement so quickly!
Every week thereafter
Mum: Eh it’s been some time already…
Me (slightly irritated): I’m SURE they’ve received it / The office is on Christmas vacation. I got an autoresponder when I emailed them / They’ve extended the deadline and they’re probably flooded with applications / (Aaargh!)
They’ve been awfully sweet about this, I know. Eventually I did get a little concerned about the forms after a month had gone by. At least everything’s out of my hands now.

    Heh… To make things funnier, my mother (who is at home with a sore throat, and supposed to be resting) just called, confessing that she noticed a letter from USC in the mailbox, and was so excited for me that she tore it open!
    She then read out its entire contents in a very hoarse voice. It basically said that the package was received, and I’d be notified if anything’s incomplete.
    I’m amused đŸ˜€
