Got the visa
I wasn't looking forward to reapplying for my visa as I have had some bad experiences with Thai bureaucracies in the past. I delayed my visit to the immigration department because I thought my school might know the ropes better than I do. They provided me with a letter that gave details of my enrollment. It turned out it wasn't needed. I was hoping that I wouldn't have to leave the country again to apply for another visa. There was no such problem. I got the visa in my new (very expensive) passport with no more trouble than a long wait and the officer involved even smiled.
