Hi and thanks for the awesome thread! My attempt at a contribution, excuse the shoddy image qual in some of these:


Obvs if someone wants to direct link any of them, that would be great (I just don't have enough posts to do that sort of thing).

I'd have to give Duke the edge the right now. With the moleskine club a close 2nd. So much swag.

+1

I mean, if Duke includes a Verizon phone with their packet you know they're high-brow.

Joking aside, I still give the edge to NU (and probably Stanford when I see it). That moleskine is really that cool.

I don't think that any of these have been done yet so here's Harvard, Penn, and Berkeley. I'll go back through this thread later and see if there were any others that haven't already been posted and that I have.

The envelope was a tote bag. Let me say that again. A TOTE BAG. You unfolded it, all the materials were inside... and you have a sweet tote.

Example, not mine

I may decline Tulane, but my mother will be repping their law school hard for years to come :lol:

I'm pretty sure it's just a piece of loose leaf paper with "Of course you got in- now send us money" scrawled on it.

Camden just sent me a T-shirt and a pennant, along with a bunch of stuff about Philadelphia. I was pretty happy about this, considering that American sent me a magnet.

I think if schools included a t-shirt in their acceptance packets, then they would drastically increase their amount of students accepting offers.
I mean like comon, if you have a t-shirt from a school. you kinda feel obligated to go there.


So Rutgers sent me a shirt in their admissions packet, and though I had already snet them a withdraw email a week prior, the T-shirt really was a nice touch. Just saying....

UofA's acceptance was phenomenally unique! It came via usps and contained only a blue key shaped USB- the 'key' to acceptance. It was very sentimental I suppose.

How big is the storage on that USB drive?


Funny story, I went to a press event at Cornell and they handed me a flashdrive with pdfs of the presentations. The pdfs took about 15 mbs of space on the flash drive; the thing had a storage space of 8 gigs.

Cornell is like the Eagleton to Ithaca College's Pawnee.

South Carolina's "letter" will make you think you were denied. 3 sheets of paper... folded in envelope. It sucks

I got a letter from Washington and Lee. Just a letter. Had I not already received an admissions email, I would've thought it was a rejection.

I enjoyed GWU's a lot (pics on OP) -- but the mailman had an absolute disregard for priority mail that should be kept flat, and consequently squished the package to fit it in my tiny apt mailbox. Creases and rips in the package really ruin the effect. :x

Anyone else have this issue? Is there a polite way to get around this in the future? I was thinking a post-it note hanging with a request to leave priority mail at the office, or leave a note for me to pickup the package at the post would be best.
