Was thinking the same. But I don't feel like we have enough nominees yet, and I don't want to do just the T14 and freeze out the likes of SMU and Tulane. Help?

The U of A key shaped USB was smart and cool.

Vandy's is really five pounds. Tons to read in there.

Well, if you're willing to put in the effort you could make the OP have a listing of all the schools people nominate and run an informal poll. From there, make the actual poll out of the ten most popular/frequently nominated or something. Or go LS22 style and create an editable spreadsheet....Or just talk to the people over in Harvard thread. They've all become pros at changing polls :wink:

And no, definitely don't just do the T14. A lot of their packets aren't very interesting (looking at you Georgetown).

(Also, I love how seriously people have been taking this thread :P )

Definitely agree with this, I want to see some pictures of these magical 5lb packages, tote bags, and shaped USB drives.

Michigan sends a Flashdrive, only 1.5gb though but it works because I lost mine a few weeks ago. Dukes lanyard is nice too, fits perfectly to attach to my Michigan flash drive.

I bet someone out there is walking around with the swag from 20+ law schools combined into one outfit.

Berkeley is a top choice of mine, and I love them dearly, but I must admit that their admissions packet was pretty TTT.

Upload to imgur and then use the "BBCode" link.

Just lots of brochures and letters from various departments. Also they claim that they are "the best zipcode in the world" which was fun.

Yeah we really need pictures. If we get enough of them, I'll make a poll based on the pics.

So far we have NYU and Tulane. Really need to see this SMU thing, and somebody who isn't too lazy to get up from the couch and do it himself needs to upload the Vandy one.

And the printed signatures are super low res.

I mean, I'm exaggerating, and I don't have much to compare it to at this point. You get a folder with 4 letters, a viewbook ("best zip code on the planet"), a "Guide to Social Justice at Berkeley" pamphlet, and a copy of their magazine. However, I know another person whose letters were seemingly misfed through the printer and the print was at a crazy angle, and apparently no one noticed before mailing out the packet.

Thanks for the Berkeley info, the slanted text is just sad. I figured they would at least send you a pet bear or something.

Sorry Koala! That one should have been yours :oops: Our brains clearly are just completely in sync with one another though your answer was much more detailed.

SMU's wasn't spectacular, just nice. It came with a nice view book and a couple of letters inside of a classy blue folder.

However, they did add a nice touch with a pretty Christmas card containing a couple of handwritten notes specific to my application.

Is there actually a GULC packet? I think all I got was a letter.
