    I received a postcard about a week ago saying that my materials had been received and were being reviewed and I should hear from them in the next three weeks.

    Have to respect them acknowledging they received my stuff. The envelope the postcard came in was even addressed by hand.

    I actually preferred that it was addressed by hand. Made it seem more personal and gave me a glimmer of hope that I might actually be considered. The simple things in life, I guess.

    I've received the postcard before too ... I'm not working at the PD now, nor have I ever worked there.
