The Cornell and Northwestern acceptance packets were beautiful. I can't post images yet but the links are both there.

Cornell's had a (7in by 5in) cloth-bound book with lots of information on...well pretty much everything involving the law school, Ithaca, and just...yeah everything. Cloth was a gorgeous-looking red. Came in a small pizza-box style thing as well.

Northwestern's was a mixed matte/glossy black and it kind of slid out like a DVD in a sleeve. It was a good weight. Inside was a bold purple notebook and other fancy things. Very sleek!

I was accepted in late November and received it just about a week ago. I'm not sure when they started sending them out though, which will be more pertinent to the question of when other accepted students will get theirs!

Mine got a bit beat up so I stopped carrying it around. I'll post the rest later. I believe we used to give out T-shirts, though.

Yeah I have to say that Cornell book is definitely in the running. If you're bored, more angles/pics would be great.

Wow, schools are really upping their game. The Cornell one reminds me of how the new Macbook Pros are shipped.

As a side note, some of us (like me) are posting outdated packets. We should probably post what cycle they were for, too.

(Last year, Northwestern gave out a fancy leather folder - the type you see every person with at a career fair. It was really pretty, but I'll never be able to use it...)

Not sure if this has been said but the NU package has the same Moleskin as Stanford, or so it looks.

Does it have the "SLS" on it? Because that would be a little weird.

Yea. I was so excited at first I wasn't really paying attention to what I was doing. I just wanted to start writing in it.
