*beats on SFU phone tree* "This mailbox is full"? What the hell does that mean, you bastards?
Haven't heard from them yet. Haven't been asked for money. Called number was told to call if not hearing from them after the 9th, got a phone tree with no people at the end of any of the branches. Aaaargh. Am going to have to try again later, damnit. Bastards.

This is the worst possible time to be dealing with teh SFU admissions and reg office, which is disorganized at the best of times. Final grades have to be submitted by the end of the month and summer registration should be mostly over with by then too so it would probably be less frustrating to call then. You'd think a university the size of SFU would be able to handle more than one thing at once but as we all learned the hard way last year, they can't. Best of luck and if you don't manage to ensure that your application has been received over the phone, yellig at them in person can be far more effective.

They really put the FU in SFU!
According to Dan, who heard from some people at school, the SFU computer system is fucking over everyone. Hence, the mailboxes full of hate. Pester and wait.

That is understatement. Someone in a fit of 'brilliance' decided that rather then spend the money to make the old registration system more functional that they would pay a firm to build this system run by an outside company. In a further fit of brilliance they decided to do this prior to Spring registration when thousands upon thousands of people are registering rather than wait until summer when only a third of the student population takes classes. While I personally have never had any major problems with it, many many people have so it's all a little chaotic at the moment.
