    I mailed an self addressed envelope to La Casa Del Mundo on July 17, 2017. Today I received an open empty envelope with a stamp that I sent to them for an application. Now I’m very happy that I discovered that I could also apply through NYC Connect and I did so this afternoon. But it makes me question, how many people are wasting money on stamps for applications that they will never receive?
