This is probably a good sign, right? Do we know anything more than that? Does the fact that it is coming by next day air mean it is definitely an acceptance?


my transfer acceptance was next day but 2.3 lbs.

Oh, was the weight stated in an email?

That makes my one pounder sound less promising...

edit: also, some of my boxes are still unchecked, so I'm wondering if this could be a ding. But I also have a hard time seeing a school sending a ding via overnight air.

Not sure if there's any knowledge out there, yet, but seems unlikely they'd spend the money to next-day a ding, when they could easily just do it over e-mail.

also agree but as Master Stillwater indicated, the package was a 2.3lb-er.

Maybe they forgot to put their healthcare package envelope in the folder, because that guy easily weighed 1.3 lb alone.

not sure if this helps at all, but my ups shipping info didn't have any weight at all (just listed as a letter). it just arrived today and was an acceptance letter. hope that helps

I was able to access admitted student page a few hours after my status update, just incase that helps.

I recognize that this question will piss off some people waiting for some of us to withdraw, but I was wondering if anyone out there was either considering stalling or some other procedure to buy more time.

I see that NYU requires a $600 deposit and also a signing of intent to enroll...which means a withdraw from current school and all other acceptances. My question is--- is anyone going to deposit, and sign while still remaining in their current school because they are really ambivalent?

Welp, at least you're honest with yourself.

Hey it's a really tough decision. I think most of us can understand that.

Haha. I am sorry to you all. I really am, I know the waiting game absolutely blows. It's just really hard right now for me to withdraw from my current school with all the things I have going for me there so quickly. The more I think about it, the more I see myself heading to NYU, but I just don't fully know yet. I apologize to all of you for this.

"Guy who withdrew"- for Harvard, you shmuck.

Some of us laymen have other things to think about.

Just for the record, in case some are keeping a tally of TLS acceptances, my one pound envelope was an acceptance. Very excited, 90% sure I will be going. Next Monday is deposit deadline.

All you received was an envelope?
