And then the sun breaks through...

So some of you know what happened with Australia, but for most of you the last thing you heard was one entry where I typed "Australia is off." Well, here's what happened, cause now there is new news:

First, we were told that the school legally couldn't pay for the semester, like we thought they were going to. This is because Sarah and I would no longer be legally students at Concordia and therefore we couldn't use that money. The only way the money can transfer in cases like that is when the two schools or programs sign what are called "consortium agreements" or whatever. Basically these agreements say that even though we are going to a school in Australia we are still considered students at Concordia for this, and this, and this statistic and the school in Australia can count us as students for that and that and that statistic. And when those agreements are signed, then we can use Concordia's money to pay for it. So, we don't have an agreement like that with AustraLearn so that was why I said it was off. Well, Dr. Wilkinson, who is the Coordinator of International Studies, has been trying to draft one of these things up so that we can still go. Sarah and I still didn't think much would come of it, I mean, the time it usually takes when red tape and contracts and everything is involved we didn't think it would happen in the time we needed it to happen. Well, yesterday Sarah tells me that Dr. Wilkinson has finished the letter, and she has showed it to the Provost who has okayed it, and now the registrar is looking it over, and if he okay's it then she will send it to AustraLearn, "who signs these things all the time." So we're trying not to get too excited, but this might just happen after all!!!!!!! AHHHHHH!!!!!!! It would just be so cool if it works out. I don't even care if I have to stay here for an extra semester or something stupid like that. This would so be worth it. Okay, so this entry is long enough, but I just wanted to let everyone know what was going on. Ciao!
