I am not sure about grad schools but for high school students applying for undergrad spots they usually hear about acceptance in the first or second week of June.

<troll>Do Canadian compilers use semicolons to end lines of code, or do they write "eh"?</troll>

more like  "Molson, eh?"

Semicolons are the least of our worries.

Canadian compilers require all code be written in at least two official languages.

And in some places one of those languages has to be twice as large as the other.

My brother and sister are both in the middle of applying to various Ontario universities.  They won't be receiving their initial acceptance letters until May or June, from what I understand.

And the code can only be written by patronage appointees or their friends and family and will cost millions more than expected.

Good point Dennis. In that situation the compiler doesn't actually do anything, but just reports "No Errors, No Warnings".

Since nobody else is going to answer the original post I suppose I had better. About 2:30 in the afternoon.
