Not a thing, last year I got sent a letter saying they'd received it and explaining it'll take longer than you want because it gets passed through the department and then the college.. That was just before christmas!
Please please please please please please please please PLEASE just be patient. I know it's hard to be, but if you go asking around for people getting confirmations as soon as they get one you'll be worried about you not getting one. If you simply don't ask anyone about what they've got then you won't worry.
France was a bit ;poo, Italy was awesome! Very different even though I did ERASMUS in both countries.
How come France was so bad?
It sounds strange since I'm good at French, but I'm not looking forward to going there as much as I should be. I'm sure I'll just drown in French bureaucracy and pen-pushing. It was bad enough trying to buy things in shops, nevermind actually live there
