In Response To: CELTA robotic email replies? (Jim Bob No Name)

I wouldn't say 'automated', but I'd suggest an 'enrollments officer' or similar, who is probably an experienced tutor, has a role to review hundreds of CELTA applications a month and simply uses 'cut and paste phrases' from bank of phrases s/he's built up to make the replies faster to write. Teachers the world over use cut and paste phrases to fill reports.
Your CELTA application is not an assignment of the course itself, it needs simple yes/no/maybe feedback and a very brief qualifying comment.
