You guys are terrifying me :( I had to change my address recently but, though I received confirmation of the change from NYU's automated system, my address is still listed as the old one. Now I'm afraid my box went to my old address...

Someone post pics to tide the rest of us over!

There is a beautiful post-card about Admitted Students Days.


Things are getting hype-y!

I'm excited the packages are being out, but I wish she wouldn't have told me mid-January in that email because I'm still at my permanent address for a few more days, so I could've gotten it mailed here.

And Ty, Nonconsecutive, now I am doubly excited for that box to come!

No problem, and I can say without a doubt that it was indeed the best cardboard box I have received in memory. :lol:

Just curious...is it too large to fit in an apartment mailbox? Like a ups shipment?

It's a little smaller than 8.5x11", and about 1.5 inches deep.

As an international, I have not got my decision letter (2 weeks already), yet the admissions package already reached many of you guys.

Guess how envious I am :lol: :lol: :lol:

It was too large for my apartment mailbox (the kind built into a wall). They plopped it down in front of my door.

I just requested a change of mailing address with the admissions office for this purpose, but the woman I spoke with assured me that the packages had not yet been sent. Anybody willing to PM a pic of the box? The curiosity is killing me.

Finally got my NYU Pizza Box in the mail! It is quite impressive, and could definitely fit a personal pizza and bread sticks. Instead it just had a letter, viewbooks, and things like that. Very interesting stuff... but now I'm quite hungry.

For those still waiting, I was accepted on 12/17. The holidays seem to have put quite a delay on these packages.

I was accepted back in November and still haven't gotten mine. Is that normal?

Hmm... I would probably contact them about the package. I doubt they would have prioritized sending out packages to people accepted in mid-December over people accepted in November. It may have gotten lost.

This seems premature. I think today's the first day anyone's reported getting them, regardless of admit date, and the postal service doesn't work in perfect synchronicity. This is especially true if you're somewhere that's being affected by weather right now.

Wait a week, then maybe get in touch with them.

Actually, I think that Friday was the first day that anyone reported receiving a package.

Mine came to my old address, like I thought it might so I guess the "update my address" for on the ASW doesn't actually work. Oh, well, I guess I'll get it in a few extra days.

NYU_UGrad, did you just call the main admissions office when you updated your address? I'm getting this package forwarded but I should change my address for future mailings.

Ah, oops. Still, I wouldn't worry yet. I doubt they prioritized the first mailing in any particular way, plus there are different mailing speeds. Give it some more time before you contact them. I don't think it has anything crucial in it, anyways.

Just gonna +1 the wait a week part of this. Especially with all the weather and the packages just now starting to roll in.

I both called into the main office and updated my address on the admitted students website.

Just got my package from NYU! Got admitted second week of December. Mailed to my apartment in Queens, so they probably sent it out late last week.

Just got mine. Admitted 12/3. It fit in my apartment-style mailbox.

I am jealous of your apartment not having tiny little tin-cans for mailboxes. 50% of all my mail ends up mashed.
