    I second the thanks. I don't know it it's just me, but man, that letter and the orange tiger silhouette just make princeton look so CLASSY :)

    That is last year's letter. I was hoping to see this year's letter, Dec 2012. I was told that Princeton changed the body of the letter ever so slightly. Instead of stating the month and year for the Preview and decision response, it just states the month. What changes have been made to the letter. I am surprised that the letter does not have the student's name.

    Has the early action letter been the same as the regular decision letter in the past?

    My son was accepted SCEA last December. You can see his letter here:

    The formatting is a bit different, but the only content change that I can see is the one already mentioned about omitting the year for the Princeton Preview and decision response date.

    My son's name, date of birth, and high school were included above the tiger. Most likely decillon blocked out his/her identifying information for privacy reasons, as I have done.

    It was pretty darn classy. I was thoroughly wooed.
    Though, funnily enough, when I checked my decision last year, my computer froze just as the page loaded with an IE dialogue box perfectly covering the "congratulations!" I remember waiting for the page to unfreeze and staring at the orange tiger (the only part I could see) while thinking, this is an oddly cheery rejection letter.
