In any case, my friend (and loyal reader! Let's call her DL) told me how she emailed a certain school in Bahstun (hint: its name starts with the letter "H" and rhymes with "Arvard") last month just to check up on them and be like, "Oh hey, what's up? Looked at my stuff yet?"
Check out what this school sent her back:
Thank you for your e-mail and your interest the MD Program at Harvard Medical School. The school is closed due to a weather related emergency. We will answer your e-mail as promptly as possible upon our return on 3/3/11.
Seems like they were shoveling snow for a month. Poor sods.
BTW, thanks DL!
