2012 in review – 67 countries! Thank You Readers!

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

There are disclaimers that students from low-risk nationalities (including USA) applying to highly trusted sponsors (including University of Greenwich) may not HAVE to send originals, but must travel with them in case they want to inspect them. I prefer not to send my diploma, I only have one! :)
