No, even though the first batch will probably all get sent out around the same day, it'll definitely take 2-3 days for all the VCEs to reach everyone in the US alone. I remember being one of the earliest RDers on the forum to get an envelope (except for another person in Brooklyn who got it the day before I think), and then a day or so later more and more people got them from farther across the country. So don't be discouraged, the US postal service is definitely not as speedy as email.
And of course, after the first big wave there will be a more sustained yet slower trickle all the way through March/April even.
Don't be discouraged by any of this! You never know what will happen. I ended up getting accepted, but getting accepted so late into the cycle that they emailed me my acceptance instead of waiting for my VCE to arrive, just to make sure I had enough time to consider financial aid and make deadlines.
iv always wondered.. what if the vce just doenst reach you lol. are you left not knowing you got into cls. do they really not follow up with a email or phone call soon after?
