Why would they send it certified? I never received an offer or rejection certified. What do they care if you're pining away in the corner b/c it got lost?

How did you like the office/associates?

In my limited experience (and also secondhand experience from friends), the associates are hugeee douchebags. I would just chalk it up to my bad experience but my friends had similar feelings. Not sure if ours was just outside the norm, though

When was your screener? I haven't heard back from mine. Maybe they're just slow. Not that I don't hope we both made it to a hold list.
