If nothing else, the change in the value of the Canadian dollar since I've started my graduate applications process will have saved me almost $90 if I pay all the fees today, compared to in September.
The writing of 'statements of purpose' is almost complete, and most all my references are in, with the exception of one prof who has yet to submit any. Transcripts are all mailed, though another round will have to go out after final exam marks are in.
SSHRC is also out of my hands, and in those of the department head. In sum, the process is going fairly smoothly.
