I sent my application for the boards expedited with tracking. Can't be too careful, eh? I noticed today that there was a "delivery exception," with "future delivery request," estimated delivery: January 5. Problem is, the board deadline for filing applications is January 4 (which happens to be a Sunday). Being spastic, I called the ABP and got an automated message that they're closed from December 22-January 4. Oh well, I guess it's too late to worry about it. I assume something postmarked December 18 that shows up on Monday the 5th will be okay. If not, hello October boards!
