Question to those who have been admitted recently: How long after the e-mail did you get your acceptance letter in the mail?

I was rather wondering if it was email or the actual envelope.

Glad to see The Stig is going to ASW so those of us who can't make it can read his awesome review/see the great photos of CLS. We're counting on you, Stig, since you set the bar so high on your SLS and HLS ASW postings. Work your magic.

It was email - no envelope yet, I'm guessing it will still be a few days for those that don't live in/near NYC.

Ah, you are setting the standards too high!!! I'd be happy to write one though!

also worth mentioning that the first review was on chicago, as I haven't heard from HLS yet :oops:

Immediate revision: I just went and checked my mail, and sure enough there was a VCE. So it seems they send them out on the same day they send the email (since I got the email yesterday, and I live in the city)... expect them within the next couple days or so. although fwiw, the contents weren't that exciting - just the same letter as in the email, and a tiny bit of info on enrollment/housing/ASDs.

on a side note, does anyone know how long it takes for them to send financial aid info? I heard that if there's no mention in the acceptance letter, then you probably didn't get anything... I wonder if it would be worth trying to use a 25k dean's scholly from NYU to negotiate? Although considering I was on hold at CLS, I'm guessing I'm not exactly a high priority in their eyes.

Does that mean they are notifying acceptances by email rather than call? I know some people who got in early who got a call, just curious if that method has changed now.

Well I've actually changed my phone number since I applied, so honestly I wouldn't know if they did try to call me. But I definitely got an email, so it seems like it would be a little redundant for them to do all three (call, email, snail mail).

Thanks, Stig! And sorry about the HLS reference... I knew darn well it was CLS since that's one of my considerations too.
On hold at HLS in Jan, submit in late Oct. Thought I'd put it behind me, but it is now obvious I'm having issues.....
