Re: Country authorizationRereading the letter, they wrote that the "State Department has determined that it is unable to grant you authorization to work in China."
This is really weird! I really can't imagine why the State Department would not authorize me to work in China. I can't imagine what criteria they used for this decision. I've studied in China several times, but have not keep up contact with anyone there, so it can't be that. No reasons given and no appeal possible make this all the worse!
I keep thinking this must be a mistake or a cruel hoax, but unfortunately it is real.
