Waterloo AFM: Package

A photo of gatsby gatsby
I just received my AFM package in the mail today. I have been eagerly awaiting my personalized handwritten letter for quite awhile. However, to my dismay all that I had received was a handwritten short message and a personalized business card and the generic Waterloo pamphlet. Were they short on time this year, because to my knowledge, they had given out letters every single year. Perhaps my letter wasn't included?

Also, what were the scholarships that you have received?

No handwritten letter. But the thing with the business card had a hand-written "Congrats you got into AFM signed ___" thing.

I was a little disappointed.

Last year Patty Mah wrote handwritten letters to EVERYONE that got in. It was personalized too based on what she wrote. Must have taken her a shitload of time, tbh. I wouldn't want to do that every year.

I live in Brampton which is about an hour and a half away from Waterloo.

I find that the letter isn't too big of a deal, it's just rather a nice little incentive from waterloo and has become sort of a tradition that AFM is known for.

Nope they can go on strike provided they give three days notice.
