Today was my day off, and as is becoming tradition, I went up to MUN to see if they would let me study there. Last time I went to bother people it was very successful, as I was admitted to first year. ^_^ This time I went to see if I could get my first year of Augustine transferred in, so I could start into second year. And let’s just say the results this time were not so phenomenal…
Basically to go to appeal I have to present EVERYTHING I did in that year, as well as letters from every university that has a transfer credit agreement with Augustine, saying that they accept credits from Augustine. (I wonder if I should just photocopy my acceptance letter from St. FX, no I think I already pitched it, darn it.) And the prospect of all that paperwork is just TIRING, especially because the person I talked to today was NOT friendly or at all customer-service-oriented, and she started off everything, (after making me wait for 15 or so minutes,) with telling me that MUN doesn’t accept transfer credit from private colleges.
I’d like to take a moment to point out that this was one of the first questions I asked back in the day, in October, when I wanted to know if it was worth the agony of applying and wrestling with the necessary paperwork. The person I talked to said “sure, we just start looking at the transfer after the acceptance is in.”
And then today, (Five minutes ago through my MUNmail), I get THIS lovely email.
Good morning, Jasmine:
Congratulations on your admission to Memorial University for the 2011
This is to inform you that Augustine College is not an accredited
Institution by Memorial’s standards and we are therefore unable to offer
you transfer credit at this time.

AUGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHH. DARN YOUR INTERNAL STRUCTURE AND MARKETING DEPARTMENT AND LYING TO ME AND DARN YOU.
I was going to talk about the rest of my day but that letter just soured me. So instead have a picture of Fort Amherst, which I went out to;
And a sign.
P.S. Comments are REALLY, REALLY welcome. I feel like I need commentary on this.
