Best Admissions Package

Postby quetzalcoatl » Wed Feb 03, 2010 5:31 pm

To be clear, Im talking about the physical package sent to you after acceptance. What school sends you the coolest one? Duke's was very cool. A portfolio, some stuff (bookmark, keychain), and a very well made booklet with school info. Do some schools send more stuff/ better stuff? Ive heard some say that Stanford sends out a shirt or something.

i imagine any package that contains a message stating that you were accepted to h/y/s would be the coolest

The Seattle U binder was impressive. I felt rather special.

The package itself was underwhelming (just a regular sized envelope) but the bookmark included with the Pitt acceptance was pretty cool.

Vanderbilt's probably been the best so far. Huge student-written handbook, area magazines, car decal, faculty profile book, etc.

The Iowa packaging wasn't stellar, but the Iowa City pamphlets and maps were a nice touch.

I vote for Stanford, of all my packages. The shirt is a great touch, and it was one of the most interesting of the alumni magazines I've been sent.

Michigan and Virginia also send some great packages.

Harvard's was surprisingly underwhelming. They have a "green" electronic viewbook (yay environment).

+1 to Columbia and Duke. Very nicely done.

Yale's was pretty sweet, though. Gigantic, impressive binder, an emblazoned mug, and a handwritten letter from the Admissions Dean.

Michigan's was really cool because they gave me a big folder to keep all of my "future" mailings in. I appreciate the organization. :D

Yale could send me a scrap of paper with "You're in" written in bright red crayon and I'd still be impressed.

Did your tote only have two "$" stitched on the outside?

Notre Dame's was quite nice. Sounds a bit like Vanderbilt, in the sense that it was shipped in a priority box and included a giant student-created handbook, a nice folder with lot of pamphlets, letters, etc. I know they sent me a car decal too, but it might have been in a separate mailing.

It appears so.
