If it makes you feel any better, mine was "sent" on Monday, but the post mark is for the 14th.
Oh, lame! I wouldn't be surprised if West Coasters don't get them until Monday then.
Yeah. Really though it's not very special, aside from the note. Even then, Dean K has to write maybe 100 of these (and a sticky note is only so large!), so they have to be short.
I think all of this talk of "Giant Purple Envelope" made me think that it would be similar to what I hear Vandy people receive, which sounds awesome. Instead it's just a standard admissions letter, a really awesome sticky note and a paper which you use to either confirm you're attending or withdrawing.
Truthfully I look forward to the additional materials alluded to in the letter that will be coming at a mystery future date. Also, on the off chance that anyone is watching these boards, how about some outreach? Academic interest, interest/diversity group affiliation, named scholarship eligibility, etc. Then again I realize I'm being unreasonable... they probably just went through hell and are justified if they want to enjoy their holidays.
