I really enjoyed my nice UW-Madison coffee mug (even though I don't drink coffee). I must say that Michigan's was the most odd thus far...an almost-empty plastic folder with one piece of paper inside? On pure info and style alone, gotta go with Vandy as the best too.

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

No, it's just the letter. That's why we're all mocking it.

I had this odd feeling that something was "whooshing" over my my head, now I see why. :lol:

Is NYU's really a pizza box? Or was it in a prior year? All I got was a blue (not purple, oddly enough..) envelope.

Someone describe what's in Vandy's great packet, please. I got a package from them last year, but it was just a bunch of brochures and stuff.

It was the same this year. The box typically comes after the envelope.

I think the matte black presentation with the V & Oak Leaf on the front is the icing on the cake.

Ok, seriously, that looks almost exactly like the HLS sticker. There must be a law school sticker mill someplace.

It's a pretty common sticker style.

That Vandy sticker is hideous but I bet that acceptance letter looks great! Congrats!

Looks just like the sticker HLS sends in its acceptance folder.

I thought Notre Dame's packet was very well done. Still waiting for my U of Washington packet...it was supposed to be here already...grr.

I have to disagree with you Nucky, I actually really like Vanderbilt's bumper sticker.....

I will, but I think so far all we have are the NYU and Vandy ones that I was talking about early on.

Edit: Posted NYU, Vandy, GW. That's all I've got so far--unless you want a pic of the GULC letter or the WUSTL email.

Penn/UVA>HLS>Michigan>U Washington

Penn's is pretty thorough...11 different pamphlets plus the faculty guide they sent with the acceptance letter. UVA's packet isn't as large but I thought it was put together better and is more visually appealing.

No one is going to appreciate my impeccable Seven reference? I don't mean to imply that I'm laughing at my own joke (although I definitely am), but that was the single best thing I will ever contribute to humanity.

Fucking kids.
