Me too, it's going to be weird hanging out with ivy-league types all the time...

Assume you mean me, though I'm not sure why? They asked about neighborhoods, GP is a different neighborhood from Williamsburg, with a different zip code.


Not you. Someone told jd2014! that zip codes in Greenpoint and Cobble Hill had already gotten mail, to which he/she responded "Bah, I can't make sense of this." Someone later said that Williamsburg had also received them, to which he/she replied with shocked dismay. Just thought it was funny considering Greenpoint is merely blocks north, and it plays into the stereotype of transplants who move to Brooklyn without really knowing the geography of the city.

I am so far from Ivy its ridiculous. I'm glad that my UG didn't seem to hamper my admission too much, I was really worried about it

I think (not to assume) but the "I can't make sense of this" and "shocked dismay" referred to how bizzaro the randomness of the VCE delivery is, not because jd2014 doesn't know where those places are.

Still no vomit in my DC mailbox. I'm really hoping this "second wave" is real.

I also have no Georgetown mailing.

If that second wave exists, I can stop wishing for the incompetence of my neighborhood post office here in Las Vegas.

Yes, there have been some internationals that have got emails that aren't ED and aren't Hamiltons.

Apparently some acceptance package they sent out around 1/24, since their original acceptance was just one piece of paper.

Super, thanks! Will hold out hope that in lieu of an e-mail a VCE is finding its way to my permanent address in the US...

and @knock- mmm a sandwich sounds like a fantastic idea right now...
