In Need of Positive Vibes

First the good news, last fall my daughter was nominated for a History Fellowship at the University of Oxford and was accepted into the program.  She's to spend her Junior year at the college.  It's all very exciting!  But...
To accuse the college of being slow in processing all the necessary forms and letters would be kind.  The term begins early October so we thought we'd leave several days early to get in some sightseeing in London before heading for Oxford.  We are scheduled to leave this Saturday but my daughter still has not received her passport with student visa!  We are frantic!!!  I dread the thought of the extra fees involved in changing our plane reservations.  So, everyone, cross your fingers,  rub your rabbit's foot, send positive vibes, we need it!

How exciting for your DD! I'll cross my fingers that all works out and the passport shows up quickly. :-))

I would call my Congressman and ask for assistance. Their office should have someone who knows how to weed through bureaucracies to see where her passport and visa are.

It is such an honor for her to be able to do this. I hope she has a great time and you post some updates on how she is doing.
