Now you are starting to see what we've been going on about. Now, be on the board for a dozen years and you can begin to understand our acerbic answers occasionally (I mean, are you kidding me? Was it typed or hand written? Were you taking a crap while doing it? What did you eat before you posted it? :shock: #-o :roll:


I don't think he means that way...

The next question could be if you have a Masters degree from a top university in your country

If you break 108 coconuts a week, you might enhance the chances of PR approval... Apparently

hmmm, apparently people who are waiting for PR asking all sorts of questions like whether handwritten or printed letters does them any better in getting the approval stamp.

after a few years of reading and replying the same question, guess that anybody would be weary of saying no ... so that's where the coconuts came from

The color of the pen is more important and I can prove it.

dynoto, that's where most of our acerbic answers come from. The most inane questions in the world. It wouldn't be so bad it the answers to those question actually had an iota of relevance to the application. But they don't, how bloody hard is it to understand that every little thing you write on the application has plus or minus points given to it. As does the results of their in situ vetting teams in the countries the applicant is coming from. From the reputed University (only in your country) that nobody has ever heard of outside of that country, to the MBA from a paper mill or via long distance learning. Oh, also add or subtract points if the parents are still alive, if you have childrens, What gender they are, grades in Univ, how many siblings you have and the chances of collateral damage, e.g., if you subsequently apply for SC and you get it, how many relative will you try to drag along to sponge off the subsidies here. Absolutely NO TWO PROFILES ARE EXACTLY THE SAME and there is the rub. Some people cannot get that into their thick skulls. These people shouldn't have even been given an EP or S pass. Amd recently it just seems to be getting worse.

Yes but if I could be knowing how many weeks you are waiting then I could be knowing how many weeks I am waiting. How many weeks you think I am waiting?

Yes, that's correct except it was not ICA but the applicants, and not the crayon but cry on after some obvious failures to follow the ICA guidelines.
